The percentage of Americans working from home has steadily increased in past years, and recent events have resulted in an explosion in the number of remote employees. With more employees working remotely than ever before, the risks of associated fraud are increasing.
E-mail is not secure enough to serve as a reliable identity factor when it relates to access to a companies' assets such as an internal network, accounting information, or employee information. In addition to spoofed e-mails, which can be blocked or identified by a savvy IT team, spear phishing attacks can result in fraudulent requests coming from legitimate corporate e-mail accounts. While security and awareness is essential to preventing such attacks, businesses also need to have a reliable second factor of authentication prior to providing such access or information to remote employees.
