MessageMedia and RSA

RSA is the premier provider of intelligence-driven security solutions and helps the world’s leading organisations solve their most complex and sensitive security challenges. MessageMedia is a member of the RSA Ready Technology Partner Program and has significant experience with the RSA Authentication Manager/SecurID. Our certified integration with RSA Authentication Manager ensures a seamless, out-of-the box integration.

The RSA Secured Partner Program certification means that administrators using RSA Authentication can now use MessageMedia’s SMS platform to deliver one-time passcodes via text messages for on-demand authentications. Users receive a one-time password (OTP) delivered as an SMS message, allowing the phone to become a security token.

MessageMedia’s focus on mission-critical enterprise communications means that our system is well-suited to the delivery of time-sensitive one-time passcodes for RSA Authentication Manager users. We work closely with the RSA Sales Engineering team to help RSA customers implement the optimal authentication solution for their organisation.

How 2FA Works

When a user attempts to remotely access a business system or application from outside of the corporate network, he or she will be prompted to enter a one-time passcode (OTP) for identity verification. Your server will generate the OTP and send it to MessageMedia’s SMS server, which sends it to the user as either a text message or voice recording. The user is then able to enter the OTP and continue on to the system he or she was trying to access. You’re able to rest assured that your business systems are secure.

Our recent 2FA experience includes the deployment of SMS for OTP to one of the leading securities exchanges, the number #1 ranked hospital network, a Fortune 100 retailer, a top 5 energy company, a leading media conglomerate, and one of the largest healthcare companies in the world.
