Axway CSO Taher Elgamal Posts on DarkReading.com: “A True Second Factor”

Axway CSO Taher Elgamal posted a blog post today on DarkReading.com, a news and information portal that focuses on IT security. Please take a look and share your thoughts!

“I say ‘an iota of’ rather than ‘no’ because a hacker would have to phish a number of different knowledge-based elements to effectively pull off an act of identity theft. Nevertheless, knowledge-based authentication is — let’s be frank — far more annoying than it’s worth thanks to the ubiquity of phishing. Any form — and subsequently anything that goes into a form — can be mimicked by bad guys. If you inadvertently land on their website and fill out their forms without checking the URL bar and recognizing that this site isn’t even remotely the place you want to be, your private information will be phished.”
