ZUG, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wavemobile selects Telecom26’s two factor authentication 2FA solution for its mobile subscribers. The announcement coincides with the 2018 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain, where Telecom26 is exhibiting (26 February–1 March 2018). Wavemobile requires a solution to validate and protect its subscribers, while avoiding the reliance on weak authentication mechanisms such as usernames & passwords. In addition, the solution must be based on network functions virtualization (NFV) architecture, eliminating a need for additional hardware and also providing a secure, scalable and cost effective solution. Telecom26’s Mobile ID 2FA is ideal in this case, as it allows mobile subscribers to be validated using mobile technology designed specifically for two factor authentication.
“Wavemobile is pleased with Telecom26’s robust authentication capabilities,” said Anthony Timson, CEO for Wavemobile. “Telecom26’s authentication platform provides Wavemobile with the functionality, scalability and flexibility required to meet our subscriber authentication needs both today, and in the future.”
