A core task for many IT admins is figuring out how to properly control network access to ensure security. Earlier most IT teams maintained a singular, on-prem working environment, now countless IT professionals have been required to enable remote access to vital resources for all users. Virtual private networks (VPNs) have been used for many years and are an effective way to provide remote network access, but they aren’t fully secure by themselves.
In 2020, Homeland Security issued a warning that VPNs are being targeted by credential theft attacks. This is exactly why MFA is necessary for VPN or Network devices security.
Multi-factor authentication (MFA) offers a stronger safeguard to the login process, especially when implemented in conjunction with RADIUS.
In an eye-opening article by Forbes, organizations all around the world figured out just how vulnerable all of the “secure” VPNs in the market are. Here is a chain of Statistics on VPNs that could make you reconsider your VPN’s security - Of the ~5 Billion users on the internet today, ~25% use VPNs. That is an overwhelmingly large number of access points to critical information and must be secured without any compromises.

VPNs can be secured with a combo of MFA through radius protocol.
Along with your VPNs, miniOrange can also help you secure you other Wireless devices that Includes your Firewalls, Switches and Even routers using Radius Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA).
You can use the radius protocol with miniOrange to encrypt your switches and routers depending on the hardware capabilities of your network. To better secure your network infrastructure, the majority of switches and routers support Radius authentication, and miniOrange can help with MFA over your network equipment.
