Top two-factor authentication tools

Quick steps to improved ID and security management


Relying on a simple user ID and password is fraught with peril. That’s where two-factor authentication services come into play. We tested 8 two-factor schemes that use soft tokens, which could mean using a smartphone app, SMS text message, or telephony to provide the extra authentication step. The vendors are: Celestix, Microsoft, RSA, SafeNet, SecureAuth, Symantec, TextPower, and Vasco.
