2017 - Okta makes 2-factor authentication standard for all customers to take on LastPass


Cloud identity provider Okta announced that it’s making 2FA the standard for all its customers. Research suggests that a large number of breaches are related to stolen or weak passwords. Okta recognizes that, so it’s implementing 2FA as a standard, presenting every user with a one-time passcode to add another layer of protection that will be harder for hackers to surface. What’s more, the company also sees the password reuse problem so it’s adding a compromised password detection tool, which can find commonly-used passwords from large, publicly-known data breaches and warn users if they are using them. It’s certainly a big step forward, and while 2FA isn’t a panacea,  it’s still better than just a username and password because it’s adding that additional layer of protection. The conclusion is that Okta becomes more secure than LastPass
