BRToken and TeleSign Enable Secure Authentication on Any Phone

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 26, 2012) - BRToken, a Brazilian company specializing in innovative products to fight cybercrime, and TeleSign, a market leader in Internet fraud prevention and Intelligent Authentication, announced a partnership offering strong authentication via SMS and or voice with language support for BRToken customers. This addition to the BRToken platform provides customers with a flexible and secure method of authentication by using the most widely available piece of technology -- a user's phone.

This partnership will integrate TeleSign 2FA into BRToken's SafeCORE platform, a strong authentication server that integrates into corporate applications, VPNs, and web services. BRToken's platform facilitates remote access for users and web customers, authenticating users during account log-ins and online transactions.

"Our partnership with TeleSign has great advantages for BRToken customers. With coverage in more than 200 countries, and voice and SMS messages in more than 87 languages, including Brazilian Portuguese, BRToken and our customers will have the peace of mind that they will have authentication mobility in both Brazil and internationally," highlights Alexandre Cagnoni, BRToken's CTO. "The integration of TeleSign 2FA can be used as a primary authentication method, an alternative to a lost physical token, or for one-time access to a specific resource."

TeleSign 2FA with BRToken's innovative authentication creates a multilayered solution which protects account access on a global scale without disrupting the user experience," said Dan Takahashi, Director of Business Development, TeleSign.
