WINTER PARK, Fla., February 7, 2019—Anthros announced a significant security enhancement to its Human Resources technology platform with the adoption of multi-factor authentication, demonstrating its ongoing commitment to security and protecting the data of clients and clients’ employees.

Multi-factor authentication (MFA) is an added layer of security requiring users to verify their identity in more than one way before accessing the online system. With compromised passwords being a leading cause of data breaches, MFA is a necessary safeguard to confirm a user’s identity.

“Cybersecurity is a top concern for clients across all industries,” said Anthros Founder and CEO Anurag Dandiya. “We must leverage technology that streamlines HR processes, while offering the highest levels of data protection.”

Anthros uses technology platform PrismHR, which is the most comprehensive HR technology platform available and has achieved System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 certification. Awarded only to organizations that have the highest security protocols in place, SOC 2 certification demonstrates that a system is designed to keep sensitive data secure.

With data breaches becoming increasingly common, Anthros remains vigilant and constantly reviews best practices and security features to minimize clients’ vulnerability.
