OTP Authentication Can Be Obtained in Several Ways

Customers have the option of authenticating with one-time passwords (OTP) either through voice call or SMS, thanks to AuthX. The AuthX mobile app accepts generic Authenticator codes and keeps all of your OTPs in one location for convenience (TOTP).

Authentication via SMS

To securely access your workstation and applications, receive an OTP passcode via SMS on your registered mobile number using the AuthX Mobile App. As an OTP SMS service provider, AuthX lets you authenticate without having to remember passwords by using mobile authentication.

Enhance OTP Via Phone Call

Select the Call option to securely access your workstation, where an automated voice will notify the user of the OTP and allow the user to access workstations and applications without difficulty. Users can strengthen their authentication systems by combining two or more authentication factors.

Timed One-Time Password (TOTP)

In the AuthX mobile app, a new TOTP is generated every 30 seconds, which users can use to verify their identity and securely access their system. TOTP-enabled workstation access is faster, safer, and compatible with existing user devices.

Utilizing Secure Hardware Token Authentication

OTP hardware tokens are far more secure than written passwords. Log in using hardware tokens, a small device that generates OTP for secure workstation authentication.

AuthX employs Symantec and YubiKey hardware tokens to provide TOTP password authentication across your organization, protecting desktop access and securing your employees.

There are three types of OTPs:

  • SMS/text — OTPs are sent to mobile devices via SMS or text messages.
  • Time-based passwords — Time-based passwords are generated on preset schedules to provide streamlined access for users.
