Take the time to get MFA right from the start

Find the easiest way to introduce MFA such that you get widespread adoption by the users.

'Look for users who are already familiar with additional factors such as consumers that use Google authenticator,' said Sebastien Huet, CTO at Remy Cointreau. 'Leverage this experience to ease the transition to MFA throughout the organization.' 
- Survey users to see if they use an existing authentication mechanism they are comfortable with.
- If the users are familiar with the additional authentication feature of Gmail, for example, it might be easier to apply MFA to the enterprise.
- Implement the technology that supports a similar process.

'If you fail on the first phase, you fail long term,' said Huet.
