Making your systems bulletproof


Controlling access to your systems is a fundamental requirement of the digital age.

And cyber-attacks are one of the biggest threats, and revenue risks, to the modern business.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA), which only grants users access after they authorise their identity with two or more pieces of evidence, is one of the greatest security improvements you can make to your day-to-day operations.

The challenges of MFA adoption

User Experience

There’s a fine line between high-tech security and ease-of-use. You need something with industry grade protection that people can navigate easily, otherwise they won’t use it. Overcomplicating your system for the sake of security can have the opposite effect, so you need to strike the balance.


Many MFA solutions offer additional services, like PAM or IAM. Knowing which are opportunities for consolidation or cost-saving, and knowing which are unnecessary add-ons, is how you find value for money and relevance.


Understanding the different technologies, standards, and protocols in cyber security can be difficult, and therefore determining which solution is the most appropriate to meet your requirements is tough without an expert on side.


Finding a team of experts with the right technical skills and experience is challenging. Finding one that also understands your business, its operations, and its dependencies is even tougher. Using our cross-divisional expertise and collaborative consulting model, we design lean systems that do exactly what you need – with scalability as your needs change.


You may have specific compliance requirements (like ISO 27001 or PCI DSS) which means you’ll need a team who can operate in highly regulated industries. These can be difficult to find and expensive to retain.


The evolving nature of cyber insurance and security compliance means that provision of MFA is now required on all administrative accounts and, more recently, on all user accounts for corporate applications/platforms. MFA will soon be a must-have, not a nice-to-have, for organisations of all shapes and sizes.

Biometrics & Wearables

The traditional methods employed by MFA systems (like the use of one-time codes via text message) are increasingly being replaced by more advanced and personal technologies. Using biometric tech (like fingerprint scanning) and wearables (like smart watches) are becoming more common.

Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

AI is now being used by cyber criminals for password guessing, CAPTCHA-breaking, and voice cloning. ML is being put to work on social engineering, a technique used to deceive and persuade people. MFA provides a formidable counter to both tactics.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.

Frequently Asked Questions

To understand our MFA offer, or ask any questions that we haven’t answered, please get in touch.

What is MFA?

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) is an access protocol which requires multiple credentials to verify identity. Most traditional MFA methods start with a password, then prompts the user to enter a code from a separate, independent device – usually a mobile phone. New technology and techniques are incorporating wearables, biometrics, and other solutions.

Does MFA work with my system?

Most modern systems and technologies support MFA, especially at enterprise level. But it hasn’t been adopted by all websites and applications yet. It’s key to check compatibility before implementing a solution.

What are the 3 main types of MFA?

Knowledge-based authentication (KBA), possession-based authentication (OBA), and biometric authentication are the three main types of MFA. They are more often referred to as ‘something they know’, like a mother’s maiden name, ‘something they have’, like a physical token, or ‘something they are’, like using their fingerprint or retina.

Is MFA expensive?

MFA typically requires a small minimal investment dependant on the type of MFA solution you choose such as physical tokens. The usual costs are found in licenses (to use an MFA provider) and purchases for possession-based authentication (like buying physical tokens.)
