Two Factor Authentication is an enhancement on the traditional login procedures for electronic systems, providing an additional layer of defense against unauthorised access to a Website, VPN, Banking Data or other sensitive electronic device.
With Token-Based Two Factor Authentication (2FA), an additional "token" is required along with the password. This token, also known as a "One Time Passcode (OTP)" , is either generated every time a user logs into a system, or every time a user logs in using an unrecognised device.
TNZ Group offers a Virtual Authentication solution, which means users authenticate using a telephone or mobile device (no physical dongle required).
We deliver on-net direct to the mobile networks within New Zealand and Australia, ensuring fast and effective delivery. Your users won't be waiting!
Token delivery methods
"Email to SMS" token:
Your 2FA software generates an email, which is converted into a text message. The user receives a text message containing the token.
Configure email@example.com as the email address to receive tokens
"API to SMS" token:
"Message": "Your one time Token is: 5J9S1FE",
"Email to Voice Call" token:
Your 2FA software generates an email, which is converted into a voice call using synthesised speech. The user answers the call and the token is dictated to them.
Configure firstname.lastname@example.org as the email address to receive tokens
"API to Voice Call" token:
Your 2FA software integrates with our REST API to deliver the token code as a voice call (Text-to-Speech). The user answers the call and the token is dictated to them using a synthesised TTS voice.
See the Text-to-Speech section of the REST API for details.
"Message": "Hello. Your one time Token is: 5J9S1FE. Repeating. Your one time Token is: 5J9S1FE.",
"Email/API to Instant Messenger" token:
Using any of the methods listed above, you can send token codes IM tools (Facebook Messenger, Skype, etc). The user registers with your IM handle, linking their mobile number. You can then send tokens to their mobile number, which will automatically be delivered via IM if the user is registered.
A fully outsourced solution, removing reliance on your IT managing and sending token codes

Alternative methods are available in addition to the above, such as SOAP, FTP, etc
