When data breaches, hacks and other types of cybercrime are on the rise, you don’t want to risk leaving your data vulnerable. Protect unauthorized access and keep your server safe with 2-factor authentication! This additional layer of security informs you when there’s an attempt to login to your dedicated server, and you can either approve or deny access right from your phone; and just like our dedicated cloud hosting at Summit Hosting, 2-factor authentication can be used remotely. Even better? Our 2FA solution is available to all users for just $10 per user /month.
