Thetoken generates a randomone-time key – a random set ofnumbers – that you enter on thescreen. It generates a new keyevery time a user logs on so thesame key will never work twice. The one-time key is synchronizedwith a key generated by the authentication server on the backend.If the two match, the user’s identity is verified and he or she isgranted access.In addition, two-factor authentication protects against key logging,shoulder surfing and password cracking, and also helps guardagainst phishing attacks when connected to the network.NetSuite Makes Two-Factor Authentication SimplerMost software vendors require their customers to source andimplement two-factor authentication on their own.
