How does it work?

Step 1
A user attempts to login to a sensitive IT system.
Step 2
The systems administrator wishes to secure access beyond just username and password and provide 2FA but with improved security and a better UX than OTP via SMS.
Step 3
To do so, a universal push notification is sent to the user’s mobile device asking him to confirm that he/she is attempting to login.
Step 4
If the user responds favourably to the notification, the login is confirmed.

Universal mechanism

Universal push notifications are a secure, universal mechanism to conduct user-friendly out-of-band authentication.

Feature phone friendly

Universal push notifications are not restricted to smartphones and work on all GSM devices, without the need for a costly data connection.

No installation required

Out-of-band authentication via universal push notification does not require the installation of an application.
