New Multi-Factor Authentication Security Enhancement Coming Soon

September 11, 2017 by Rebecca Hartman-Baker

NERSC has been developing a Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) capability to enhance security for users. This feature can help protect users from having their passwords stolen. NERSC’s implementation uses the same technology used by Google and will not require any special hardware. Interested users can opt in starting later next month.
