Keep customer accounts secure and protect sensitive data with SMS two factor authentication (2fa). By enabling a multi factor authentication solution, your organisation can block 99.99% of unauthorised login attempts. With today's advancements in technology, cyber attacks are increasing with thousands of cyber criminals trying to outsmart the system and gain access to your customer's data. Two factor authentication via SMS helps financial institutions, educational organisations, healthcare providers and government agencies protect customer accounts and prevent unwanted cybersecurity attacks.

 

Reduce vulnerability to cyber threats

Ensuring the security of your customer’s accounts is critical, especially for organisations in regulated industries that work with sensitive data every day. Lock out unauthorised account access with a text message solution designed for two-factor authentication.  Not only does sending customers a one-time code (OTP) via SMS help reduce the ability for customer data to be compromised, but it also adds an extra security layer to your organisation’s documents, files, software and sensitive information.  

SMS OTP codes can be used for account logins and access, payment authorisations and more. Adding an SMS two-factor authentication method to your organisation is one of the easiest ways to elevate your business security.

 

Build trust and confidence in your business

Data breaches not only cost businesses around the world millions every year, but also reduces a customer’s trust and confidence, which can harm an organisation’s brand reputation and ultimately result in a business liquidation. Due to the increase in these security breaches, users are opting for organisations that are committed to maintaining security above all else.  By incorporating two factor authentication to protect your customer’s data, you improve customer satisfaction, credibility and brand reputation, demonstrating that data security is a top priority for your organisation.

No matter what system or software you currently use for customer relationship management across your organisation, Notifyre’s two-factor authentication SMS solution can be easily integrated via the powerful API gateway. Reduce internal inefficiencies including administration time and incoming calls for password resets by sending customers a secure OTP.
