More and more, we’re seeing multifactor authentication being implemented into new systems. Your work may even require you to take advantage of multifactor authentication for your work email account, something as simple as knowing your password and clicking a prompt on your phone at the same time. In short, multifactor authentication is all about providing multiple means of identity authentication so users are granted access to a system. There are a number of different ways this core notion can be expressed, but today we want to look at how multifactor authentication can be incorporated into vehicle inspection protocols and why that’s such a critical part in vehicle-related security.
The Big Benefits of Multifactor Authentication
Identification tools like license plates or ID cards can be duped or stolen. If you rely solely on one form of authentication, like a keycard, the whole system is undermined the moment that credential is stolen, lost, or replicated by someone with ill-intentions. It’s true that some forms of identity authentication are stronger than others, but identity theft is also easier than ever. By adding more forms of credentials into the mix, it becomes all that more difficult for someone to steal or replicate them.
Gearing Authentication Towards Vehicles
Here at Gatekeeper, we recognize the value of software and hardware that is capable of integration. This gives users greater control over what their specific tools will be, and because security is such a situational field, it only makes sense to allow for a number of different use-cases. Our technology is compatible with a full range of entry control point technologies as a result. Our Intelligent Vehicle Undercarriage Scanner system, Intelligent Vehicle Occupant Detection system, and more can all be used side-by-side to create a far more secure approach to vehicle inspection and identity authentication.
