TeleSign Announces Mobile App With Push Alerts and Soft Token Functionality
LOS ANGELES, CA, Feb 21, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
TeleSign, an Internet security and authentication leader, today
announced the TeleSign Authenticator. TeleSign Authenticator is
TeleSign's two-factor authentication mobile app featuring push alerts
and soft token capabilities.
TeleSign Authenticator delivers out-of-band authentication via push
notification or by leveraging a cryptographic key through a soft
token. The application is also available to clients and partners as a
white labeled option ready for branding and deployment to end users
of any participating service. TeleSign customers enjoy the benefit of
TeleSign managing the app deployment and all software updates.
TeleSign Authenticator can serve as a stand-alone application for an
individual service or can aggregate two-factor authentication
functionality into a single app for multiple services or web
properties. End users can authenticate into services for multiple
providers through a single mobile app, simplifying their phone
screens and streamlining app updates.
"By white labeling the TeleSign Authenticator, TeleSign allows
companies to brand their own offerings and keep their security
solutions safely guarded," said Charles McColgan, TeleSign CTO.
