HID Global launches OTP token solution
ActivID Flexi Token supports 2FA for banking, enterprise
Identity solutions provider HID Global today announced the release of its ActivID Flexi Token, a portable PIN-pad solution with "advanced security capabilities for mass deployment".
The solution works by sending one-time passwords (OTP) to the pad to support two-factor authentication. It is aimed at the financial sector and general enterprise-level organisations.
"Our banking and enterprise customers now have another OTP token option as part of an end-to-end solution that delivers one of the industry's best possible out-of-the-box experiences," said Tim Phipps, vice president of product marketing for HID Global.
"The new tokens can be used with our ActivID authentication system without requiring equipment to be replaced or updated."
The token pad can be used not only for OTP or challenge and response, but also for transaction signing and host verification through a dedicated button on the device.
