Cisco Duo Mitigates the Risk of SMS Swap Attacks
The most popular MFA option on the planet is SMS (Short Messaging Service), where an authenticating server sends a 4-6-digit text code to your cell phone.
Cybercriminals typically don’t have access to your physical phone, so SMS seems strong. Unfortunately, they don’t need your phone if they can mirror your cell phone’s SIM, and intercept that text message.
Cisco Duo levels-up your MFA to mitigate the impact of “malicious SIM swaps.”
Cisco Duo authentication offers a variety of authentication options.
The push notification option is more effective because it requires a timely response on the downloaded phone app instead of a code. So it’s not only the most safe, it’s also the least restrictive.
