Enterprise Considerations

Large organizations could use MPFs assigned to specific users to facilitate dual-access to a user's accounts across the enterprise. If the enterprise's Security Operations group assigns unique MPFs to it's users, Security Officers would then be able to access the user's accounts without intrusively modifying the user's account or password. This type of management could be used for account access when user is absent or indisposed, shared account access among multiple staff members or within an operational group, or even surveillance of a suspected user by the Security Operations group.
