SSH Announces Most Convenient Mobile Authentication Solution

2010-02-16

__Helsinki, Finland & Wellesley, MA, USA - __ SSH Communications Security (HEL:SSH1V), the forerunning provider of open-standards-based enterprise security and managed file transfer solutions, today announced the SSH Tectia MobileID authentication platform.

SSH Tectia MobileID is a strong two-factor authentication service that utilizes the most readily available authentication device, the end user's existing mobile phone, to provide higher security and ease of use for user authentication to various enterprise services. A one-time password is sent to a user's mobile phone when logging in to a service.

SSH Tectia MobileID enables organizations to activate new partners, users, or ad-hoc accounts within minutes instead of days, and removes the costs of distributing, maintaining, and replacing additional hardware such as security tokens or other devices. Two-factor authentication increases security by requiring something that the user knows (user name and password), and something that the user has (e.g. the mobile phone).

The SSH Tectia MobileID authentication platform introduces a new level of flexibility, usability and security for enterprise user authentication said Jari Mielonen, CEO of SSH Communications Security. It enables secure access to critical business resources, without changing business processes or requiring the user to learn or install new hardware or software. The combination of high security, high usability, and low cost of maintenance lead to improved operational efficiency and lower costs.

SSH Tectia MobileID enables strong authentication for multiple enterprise services, including file transfer portals, intranet applications, business information systems, or cloud services. In addition to mobile phone based authentication, it can also be used with other authentication solutions, such as hardware tokens, reusable SMS tickets, or printable lists of one-time passwords. Its fast deployment and flexible management capabilities make SSH Tectia MobileID a powerful secure access component for SaaS (Software as a Service) and cloud services.

SSH Tectia MobileID is now available directly from SSH Communications Security, and from its global network of sales channel partners. Visit www.ssh.com for more information and to request a product evaluation.
