Wavemobile chooses Telecom26 AG for mobile ID 2FA solution

Wavemobile selects Telecom26´s two factor authentication 2FA solution for its mobile subscribers, the company said.

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.
