The Multi-Factor Authentication Security Assessment (MASA) is a free tool that helps you understand the vulnerabilities faced by your organization, based on your multi-factor authentication practices. 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 5 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 will include detailed explanations of the vulnerabilities that are present in the forms of multi-factor authentication that your organization has in place.
1) To get started, 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.
3) Answer each question about your MFA solution. Click the Next button to move forward. If you would like to go back and change your answer, click the Previous button.
4) Once you're finished, click the Submit Answers button.
5) Then you'll be taken to the Results page where you'll receive a brief overview of the potential risks associated with your MFA solution.
7) From the Results page, click the View Full Report button to download a PDF file with your complete report. This report provides a detailed analysis of all of the MFA risks your organization could be facing, and it includes suggestions that you can take to reduce these risks.
Analyzing your Results
After you've completed your assessment, the Results Page shows you an overview of the answers you entered during the assessment and a short overview about 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 here.
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 highly customized and detailed report that provides explanations about MFA vulnerabilities and the best practices to consider when deciding which MFA practice works best for your organization.
