Harness the power of seven billion phones to authenticate, what are your options?
In terms of pure arithmetic, almost every person on the Earth now possesses a mobile phone, with some even having multiple devices as they also have a company phone. Laptops and tablets are also widely used by the ever increasing number of staff who work remotely. Businesses, government agencies and other organisations can therefore take advantage of this fact and use the devices as the authentication tool. Putting the user in control of which device to use as the authenticator and allowing them to change or upgrade their device is a better solution compared to token-based offering. This approach is cheaper, less labour-intensive and more secure, especially if seed records are separated, as is the case with SecurEnvoy solutions, in order to prevent the manipulation of devices.
