Entrust and Clickatell partner to help stop online identity attacks.
Software authentication company Entrust needed an SMS partner for its Entrust IdentityGuard product. IdentityGuard helps organizations to authenticate the identities of users, machines or mobile devices for access to sensitive networks, services, applications or facilities.
Clickatell helped develop the technology to send single or multiple one-time passcodes to a mobile device. Entrust IdentityGuard automatically issues a configurable number of OTPs directly to the end user's mobile phone via Clickatell text messaging.
Entrust IdentityGuard soft tokens are delivered to mobile devices for out-of-band authentication on 1000+ carriers across the world. IdentityGuard can also provide automatic refresh of the passcodes and enable user authentication even when users are out of cell phone range, providing security capability regardless of location.
