CRYPTOCard , a leading vendor of two-factor authentication (2FA), has been awarded Innovative Product of the Year at the Techworld Awards for its SMS one-time password token.

Entries for the category were judged by a formidable panel of experts which included representatives from Capgemini, Accenture, IDC, and correspondents from leading IT publication, Techworld.

"We are delighted to win this award, not least because it demonstrates CRYPTOCard’s mission to provide innovative services and solutions that are designed to ease the challenges of securing a business’ most valuable asset – its data,” said Neil Hollister, CEO of CRYPTOCard.

Hollister adds; "The SMS Token is ideal for businesses that have a mobile workforce, but still want a simple, cost-effective and highly secure password strategy. With no additional hardware install, or complex and costly implementation required, the SMS Token is extremely accessible for any organisation and very user-friendly.”

The SMS Token offers the flexibility of CRYPTOCard’s existing two-factor authentication tokens - which are widely regarded as the most secure available – and additionally addresses the need for greater portability, affordability and simplicity, particularly among an enterprise’s distributed workforce. Users can receive the token on any SMS enabled mobile phone, which eliminates the need for physical tokens.

Delivered as part of the CRYPTO-MAS Managed Authentication Service, it answers the market requirement for zero up-front investment and maximum ease of use.
