The Multi-Factor Authentication Security Assessment (MASA) is a free tool that helps you determine if your organization's current multi-factor authentication (MFA) practices have vulnerabilities to cybersecurity attacks. Using this tool will increase your organization's awareness of potential attack vectors and the best practices for establishing which forms of multi-factor authentication work best for your organization's security.
This assessment will take about five minutes to complete.
How Does MASA Work?
The MASA tool begins with a general question about the current type or types of authentication methods that are used by your organization. The assessment then builds upon your previous answers to create a custom experience that provides a better understanding of different types of authentication solutions.
At the end of the assessment, you'll receive your results in a customized PDF report. The PDF report will include detailed explanations of the vulnerabilities in your organization's multi-factor authentication (MFA) practices.
To get started, follow the steps bellow:
1. Sign up for the assessment by filling out the form on this page. Be sure to enter a valid email address in order to receive your high-level summary and your custom PDF report at the end of the assessment.
2. Once you've filled out the form you'll receive an email with a link to take your assessment. Click the link when you're ready to begin.

Analyzing Your Results
After you've completed your assessment, the Results page shows you an overview of the answers you entered during the assessment. It also shows a short summary of your MFA solution and the vulnerabilities associated with it. If there is a best practice associated with your MFA solution, you will also see this information on this page. For example, see the screenshot below:
You will also receive an email with an informative infographic. This infographic explains the possible attack vectors that are present with your current MFA solution and provides the best practices for protecting your organization.
From your infographic, you'll be able to view two versions of your custom report. The Full Detailed Report shows you a highly customized and detailed report that provides explanations about MFA vulnerabilities. It also discusses the best practices to consider when deciding which MFA practice works best for your organization.
