How big a deal is 2-factor authentication?
Hi, my company runs a cisco vpn in order to enable secure (SSL) remote access to our corporate network.
I'm the CEO and don't know a lot about this stuff, but my IT guys are telling me that my network won't be really secure until we implement a 2-factor authentication solution as well.
I, who lived through the Y2K scare and am still skeptical about the millions I spent, don't yet feel confident that this is necessary.
Any thoughts out there in cyber-space?

It's pretty important, actually.
Think about it this way:
You can have a great security system for your house that is really good defending you against the bad guys.
But what if someone you don't like has the key to the front door, and knows the security code?
It would be really great to figure out how to prevent that person from entering...
