PhoneFactor, a phone-based multi-factor authentication provider, unveiled it’s OATH passcode option to its phone-based authentication line. The OATH passcode enables multi-factor authentication through the PhoneFactor Mobile App or a third party OATH token. The passcode allows users to authenticate during the login process.
This addition to PhoneFactor’s authentication process extends the company’s line of mobile and out-of-band authentication products. Its line of mobile authentication apps for a number of mobile platforms can function as soft tokens by generating OATH algorithm passcodes.
