In the past several years, retail data breaches have become so commonplace that they’re hardly news anymore. From Target to TJ Maxx to Vera Bradley, nearly everyone has been affected by retail fraud and data breaches at this point.
As we buy our way through this season of gift-giving, we took a look at the retail industry’s current state of security based on the hundreds of thousands of authentications each week that Duo protects for our retail clients.
Our findings address all devices that employees use to log into applications using Duo’s two-factor authentication service, whether it’s point-of-sale systems or corporate laptops/workstations. There’s good news and bad news.
