Mobile security trends: Two-step vs. two-factor authentication


With the mobile workforce on the rise and enterprises working to keep up with demand, mobile security has never been more important. According to CIO Insight, 95 percent of IT departments meet obstacles to increase user mobility.

Strong authentication and access management, says Genalto, are two ways to strengthen security for mobile.

What are the differences between two-step authentication and two-factor authentication, and how do they provide an extra layer of security, especially for a mobile enterprise where mobile security is critical?
