You should be careful to give access into your data realm to anyone. Make sure that only verified persons/identities will get access to your documents and ask them for a second factor authentication in an easy and low cost way! Sending the appropriate API call will send a SMS, voice or email message to the requester. Only after entering the right One Time Password (OTP) access will be granted. The validity of the OTP is limited, so you are certain that a lost OTP does not harm your security.
A simple API call does the job – no need for equipment and a secure connection makes sure that a higher security level is included.
Add a second factor authentication to your log in without any investment and make sure that the right person gets access to your data environment on a pay per use basis.
Whether there are 5 visitors or 5000 per day - no need to worry: KPN will take care of your authentication requirements and ensure that access is granted to the right persons.
How it works
Whenever the (web)application of the requester is logging on, a secure connection is established. The API call is sent encrypted and includes the request for a text message and the mobile number of the person who is requesting access. The text message (a code, usually 6 or up to 10 characters long) is sent to the appropriate mobile device and the person is requested to enter the given OTP. The text message can also be sent as an email, or can be sent as a voice message.
The validity of the OTP is limited so after e.g. 3 minutes a new OTP is required to get access, in case the requester need too much time. Note: this can be customized in line with your requirements.
We can help you secure your authentication in every stem of your development and application maturity. Whether it’s the integration of sending OTP messages to clientless (mobile) devices, soft- and hard tokens fully white-labeled to your organizational or application needs and even integration of biometrical authentication methods. We are more than happy to help you conquer your authentication challenges.
