Why Does PNW Use BoilerKey?

The primary reason for using the BoilerKey is that it is more secure. Two-factor authentication increases the level of security by using something you know (career account username and either a password or PIN) and something you have (a physical token or the Duo Mobile application on your smartphone).

As the number of systems using the BoilerKey for access increases, your value in using the BoilerKey also increases.
