REDWOOD CITY AND SAN DIEGO, CA (PRWEB) November 19, 2013
Confident Technologies Inc., a leading provider of image-based authentication and verification solutions, and Clickatell, a global leader in mobile messaging and transaction services, today announced the delivery of Confident Multifactor Authentication™ – a new innovative two-factor authentication solution. The partnership between the two companies enables developers and organizations of any size to utilize the Clickatell technology platform for delivering Confident Technologies’ image-based authentication to end-users’ mobile phones for cost-effective, out-of-band (OOB), multifactor authentication that is secure and easy to use.
An increasing number of online businesses large and small – from online banks and healthcare portals, to webmail providers and social networks – are deploying multifactor authentication. The Confident Technologies solution is particularly effective against automated attacks because users solve an image-based authentication challenge in the mobile browser on their phone for the second factor of authentication. The process remains completely out-of-band from the web session on the PC, making it very secure. At the same time, it is extremely easy to use – the user simply taps a few images on their mobile phone’s display screen, so there is no need to type any code into the web page on the PC.
As a cloud-based solution, Confident Multifactor Authentication is conveniently integrated and deployed, with no special enrollment required for end-users. Confident Multifactor Authentication can be used as a stand-alone authentication solution or white-labeled and integrated with other security solutions for a comprehensive, risk-based authentication solution. Pricing is based upon the number of authentication transactions used, making Confident Multifactor Authentication cost-effective for organizations of all sizes, as customers pay only for what they use.
“We believe that the leading edge, image-based approach for multi-factor authentication from Confident Technologies is a terrific solution and we hope that our developer community and customers are as excited as we are that it’s now available on the Clickatell platform,” said Bill Wolfe, Executive Vice President of SMB and Chief Strategy Officer at Clickatell, Inc. “Our customers will now be able to deliver this valuable service to their partners and end users as well. Bringing an innovative multifactor authentication capability to the Clickatell platform is a natural consequence of our customers’ desire to create more secure web and mobile interfaces. This is an affordable, timely and important security solution.”
“This partnership leverages two truly complementary technologies, combining the global reach of the Clickatell messaging platform and Confident Technologies’ innovative multifactor authentication solution to provide great benefit to Clickatell customers,” Curtis H. Staker, Chief Executive Officer, Confident Technologies, Inc. “Organizations of any size can now purchase, integrate and easily deploy an affordable, image-based approach to multifactor authentication to mitigate growing threats.”
