Under the theme of Mobile Changes Everything, EuroCloud UK, the premier Cloud Computing trade association and networking community in the UK, will convene industry experts Wednesday November 12 in London to discuss the many ways that mobile is increasingly the platform that matters.
In 2013, Evernote began a wide-ranging review of its security measures to ensure the integrity and overall experience of its services. In order to protect their global accounts from compromise, beyond the traditional username and password, Evernote decided to add phone-based two-factor authentication to all user accounts.
We’re very excited to announce the availability of TeleSign AuthID Kit, a new mobile SDK that allows developers to easily embed advanced authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication (2FA), within existing mobile apps.
Citrix ShareFile is a great example of how TeleSign customers can easily add two-factor authentication to their applications, ensuring that even in the most security-conscious vertical markets, customer accounts can stay protected, yet maintaining easy access from anywhere.
TeleSign discusses how a simple account registration process, which just requires mobile users to enter their phone number, is not only faster and easier, but also more secure. Expecting users to fill in their full name, gender, email address, home address and password etc on a small screen is ridiculous. This may be the process on a desktop device, but it simply doesn’t work on mobile. What’s more, requiring users to enter just their phone number also has the benefit of enabling service providers to use the data associated with that number to assess the likely risk of cybercrime, and block potential fraudsters. Providers can also use that number to send a verification code to authenticate a user on registration, and at any time during the life of the account.
