Download SMSPassword – Secure your infrastructure with Multi-factor authentication.
What is SMSPassword? With security being more and more important, SMSPassword allows secure two-factor authentication. The brilliant part about this system that it adapts to your existing infrastructure. It uses your existing Active Directory, and it uses your employees mobile phone to send a SMS password.
How does it work?
2-factor-auth1First users logon with their normal credentials.
2 After that SMSPassword will automatically send a one time/temporary password to the persons cell phone by SMS. The user enters this password, and is allowed access. This one time password expires in minutes.
There you got two-factor authentication without the need of tokens, using existing resources in your company.
Great, but is it redundant?
redundantWhile single node operation is possible, SMSPassword was build with redundancy in mind. SMSPassword can be up scaled to as many nodes as your load balancer allows. Each node replies to your load balancer with a heartbeat.
If a server, service, network or something else fails, the node will be detected as ‘down’, skipping it for as long as it doesn’t respond to the heartbeat. Allowing the other nodes to continue the authentication process. Every node is self sufficient and operate autonomously.

Integrates seamlessly with your existing Active Directory. Every node can operate autonomously, every operational configuration setting is stored in active directory. Without the need for a custom schema, or additional user attributes. It simply uses the mobile number attribute found in a existing database: Active Directory.
