Two factor authentication (2FA) is a compelling way to add an extra level of security, requiring a user to have a physical element (such as a phone), in addition to their username and password. This additional step prevents unauthorized access.
Temovi Secure – Two Factor Authentication eliminates the barriers to adoption, providing a comprehensive and cost-effective cloud-based solution that is easily integrated into web sites and mobile applications for both iOS and Android.
40% of global consumers experienced a security incident in 2015, often due to a stolen password.
The average user visits 25 password protected sites, but uses only 6 passwords.
73% of people reuse the same password across multiple sites, 33% reuse it in EVERY site.
68% of global consumers say they want online companies to provide an extra layer of security.
Temovi Secure-2FA leverages a rich set of Temovi APIs provided in Web, iOS and Android SDKs; simplifying the integration of two factor authentication for any application in an affordable pay-per-transaction model.
Secure-2FA provides several Application-to-Person (A2P) mechanisms to deliver a one-time-passcode (OTP). The passcode is delivered to the user's device and subsequently entered into the application to confirm the user's identity (entry can be automated, depending on the mechanism). Mechanisms include:
A phone call is placed with the authentication code embedded in the Caller ID information sent to the user's phone. The user doesn't need to answer the call so there is no cost associated with the call (nor the cost of a text/SMS). The user retrieves the code from the Caller ID and enters the code into the application (on Android devices, the application can retrieve the code automatically, without user intervention).
A text message is delivered to the user with an authentication code to enter into the application (on Android devices the application can retrieve the code automatically, without user intervention).
A call is sent to the user's phone with an automatic voice message that includes the code. This method is typically used to enable land lines or legacy feature phones (non-smartphones) to act as authentication devices.
Enhance the security of your mobile and web-based applications Using two factors of the same category doesn’t make it 2FA. Within this article we explain in detail the different factor categories you should consider to create your factor authentication for your business online security.
