LEAP , the leading provider of legal practice management software, has announced that all users can now benefit from Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) across LEAP desktop, web and mobile applications.
Security-conscious LEAP users can now enable Two-Factor Authentication, a two-step system for law firms to improve secure access to LEAP involving a one-time verification code sent to the user’s mobile device.
Research has shown that single-factor authentication (i.e. an email and password) is increasingly vulnerable to security breaches; while the option to create a complex password can be impractical for users. Two-Factor Authentication addresses this issue by providing an additional layer of security for LEAP users.
Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) gives LEAP users peace of mind as it ensures that even if their password is compromised, the account cannot be accessed without entering a verification code. When signing into LEAP, users must first enter their LEAP credentials. If the credentials are valid, users will then be prompted to enter a verification code which is generated via the user’s mobile device.
If users lose their mobile device or buy a new mobile device, you can deactivate it from within LEAP or from the old mobile device.
Two Factor Authentication enables LEAP users to further secure highly confidential files and correspondence.
This simple security solution allows lawyers to work on the go from multiple locations while ensuring lawyers meet the high standards of security required by law.
