I am working on a very, very time critical project (one of the reasons I have not been an active member recently) and Thursday was picked as the day the M$ two form factor authentication came into force for us. We were told originally that it would not affect us as we tend to use desktop and a hardwired network. I did try but not having a direct dial phone caused issue, having to use my personal mobile didn't seem like a good idea, I was not overly worried as I am on a different network (the Dev Network) to the general Admin... So that's OK not an issue I am told. Come Thursday bang! nothing works I end up having to hack around the system using my personal smart phone to download some authentication app to allow me to do work. So to make the system more secure, I have to use personal equipment to verify the set up that is hardwired is valid ?
I have done proper security work (with people with guns nearby) this was a farce! all it did was put a late running project, further back, mind you we have a good excuse.
That's a very big problem in expansion. A lot of people thing that making it annoyingly complicated to work is actually called security.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
