In this series, we ask members of the East Coast’s business community to share things they’re loving lately.

This week we asked Fredericton’s David Shipley, CEO of Beauceron Security.

I’m loving Microsoft’s Authenticator app for Apple’s iOS – it works on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch (there are versions for Android too!) The Authenticator app is free, fast and easy to use. It’s a great way to enhance your online security. It works with Microsoft’s products, Office365 and with third-party applications & services (including ours) that support login with Microsoft accounts. With it, I can easily approve logins to my online accounts and devices. The app works on my iPhone and my watch.  If someone was ever able to capture my username and password, they still wouldn’t be able to login without access to my phone or watch.

The authenticator app is a great example of what’s known as multi-factor authentication. I love it because it will work even when I’m travelling in-flight – as long as there’s Wi-Fi on the flight, I can securely log into my services.”
