Strengthen your Global Payments account security with multi-factor authentication

Posted on in Business News ,Brands & Products News , Cycles News

On 22 May, Golbal Payments are adding multi-factor authentication (MFA) as a new step in the Merchant Portal login process. It's an extra layer of protection for your account credentials and business data.

Global Payments are a long-standing partner of the ACT and ActSmart, and are the ideal card-processing provider for established or larger businesses. ACT members and ActSmart subscribers get free account set-up and ongoing preferential rates

What is MFA?

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an extra layer of protection against cyberthreats like phishing attacks and account takeovers. It verifies your identity with two different "factors" of authentication when you log in.

The authentication methods we use for Merchant Portal are:

  1. Your Merchant Portal password.
  2. A one-time verification code sent to your email, phone, or authenticator app

With MFA, even if someone guesses your password, they won't be able to log in as you without also providing the code. It's extra account security for an extra layer of protection.

Why use MFA?

We use MFA to help protect your account and secure sensitive payment data. You may already be familiar with MFA. It's a common way for companies to implement strong identity verification and to comply with regulatory standards for data security and protection.

 

To better understand what MFA is and why it's being implemented, visit the Global Payments Help Centre. Stay tuned for more updates once it goes live with MFA.
