The National Institute of Standards (NIST) recently issued a ruling on digital authentication that states SMS messaging as a second authentication factor (2FA) should now be considered insecure. While sending an SMS for OTP is still better than having no additional authentication factors, the NIST ruling suggests that organizations wanting to raise the bar on their security standards consider more secure authentication methods.
Download this white paper to learn how leveraging advanced authentication and transaction signing features help you to overcome SMS vulnerabilities and achieve a higher level of security. As a result, you can prevent remote attackers from stealing your password and second authenticator factor while transitioning to a multi-factor authentication approach that is seamless to deploy and easy to use.
