This paper discusses the value of two-factor authentication systems that provide vital access security for today's mobile workforces, who can now be productive from numerous remote locations: the home office, the airport, hotels, and customer sites. Moreover, the ubiquitous nature of mobile phones has now given rise to a new, convenient form factor for the software-based authenticator that resides right on the mobile phone/device.
Enterprises are increasingly opening up their networks to a greater constituency of remote users, but they often do not take into consideration the protection of user identity as a critical component of their strategy. The mobile workforce can now work productively from a remote location such as a home office, the airport, a hotel, or a customer site.
In an environment where business and government databases store ever-increasing amounts of sensitive and confidential data; and where a growing number of employees need to access that data remotely, password security alone is insufficient to ensure user authentication. Two-factor authentication requires two measures for users to verify their identities and access data.
