Two-factor authentication via SMS

How eCall protects your IT infrastructure and data from unauthorised access

Cyber attacks on Swiss companies were up by 34% in 2017, according to a study by KPMG1. 88% of the companies surveyed stated that they had been attacked in the past twelve months. More than half of these attacks disrupted business operations.

Companies invest a lot of money in protecting their IT infrastructures and data from unauthorised access. However, it is often not the technologies that are the weak point, but the users. Attacks occur through insecure passwords, manipulation, or the use of keyloggers. It is therefore essential to protect important login information online against unauthorised access with two-factor authentication. 2FA will significantly reduce identity theft, phishing attacks, and other attempts at online fraud. In addition to entering a user name and password, users must identify themselves with another component in the form of a code. Even if access data has already fallen into the wrong hands, online fraud attempts can be prevented with these additional authentication features.

Customer requirements
Solution

Customer security
“Data security in online operations is a growing concern for us and our customers. It’s all too easy to hack passwords these days. We wanted the login process for our customer website to use higher security than just password protection.”  - Markus Frischknecht, IT consultant

eCall offers the option of sending your customers a mobile transaction number (mTAN) as an access code in the form of a text message. The function serves as an extra element in your security process, protecting you and your customers from data theft more effectively.

Controlled data access
“A simple login is no longer enough when employees need to be given access to specific areas despite high security levels. To protect our company the most effectively, what we need is an extra security query level.” - Fabian Schmidt, IT Security Officer

The eCall SMS Gateway enables you to assign one-time passwords (OTPs) to authorized employees and allows you to control access. This additional layer of security provides optimum protection for your data. We guarantee maximum availability for password messaging.

eBanking login
“We’d like to make the eBanking services of our regional bank secure, yet simple for our customers to use. To do so, we want to provide secure data access and browser-based online transactions based on one-time passwords sent as text messages. However, the messaging service used for the process must offer a high level of data security, and must not be based abroad.” - Tobias Keller, bank director

eCall uses only top national providers to send mTANs, ensuring that information remains within the country. The extra High Privacy option overwrites all content after it has been processed by our system, preventing the original text message from being reconstructed.
