JSCAPE Adds PhoneFactor Authentication to Fortify Secure FTP Server and MFTExpress ServiceJSCAPE Chose PhoneFactor's Tokenless Solution for Mission-Critical Government and Financial Industry Customers Who Need Tighter, Cost-Effective Security (March 31, 2009)
OVERLAND PARK, KS -- (Marketwire) -- 03/31/09 -- PhoneFactor, the leading provider of tokenless two-factor authentication, today announced an agreement with JSCAPE, the market leader in secure File Transfer Protocol (FTP) solutions and services, to deliver an integrated security solution to JSCAPE customers.
With PhoneFactor, JSCAPE users will login with a user name and password -- just like they do today. Instantly, they'll get a call. They simply answer the phone and press # to complete their login. PhoneFactor adds a critical layer of security with little impact to the JSCAPE user experience.
"Our customers include government agencies and financial institutions, so security is a top priority," says Van Glass, CEO of JSCAPE. "After a thorough evaluation of two-factor authentication solutions, we found that PhoneFactor provides our customers with an additional layer of security that is much easier to use, and less expensive, than typical hardware token-based solutions."
This integration demonstrates the simplicity of adding two-factor authentication to a critical business application. "One key benefit of PhoneFactor is the ease of integration with third party applications and services," said Klint Borozan, Senior Vice President, PhoneFactor. "To make this security model of the future universally accessible, the integration had to be simple, cost effective, and easy to use."
PhoneFactor is a simple two-factor authentication service that provides far greater security than passwords alone. The award-winning service can use any phone (mobile or landline) as a second form of authentication. PhoneFactor can be setup in minutes and eliminates the need for tokens, smart cards or certificates. Learn more at www.phonefactor.com.
