Campuses have always needed to reinforce IT security without hampering the user experience to its users. IT applications are at the nerve center of day-to-day operations and providing users uninterrupted access is critical to ensure student success. Account Recovery and Authentication through SMS verification is a simple and secure way to minimize helpdesk dependency, cut costs and establish a secure gateway for users to gain access to locked accounts. It offers the following benefits:
Secured Account Recovery: Campuses can deliver a secure account recovery option to users through SMS verification. Users (staff, students and faculty) typically have access to their phones and they can now gain access to their accounts through a code that is sent to their phones via SMS.
Faster Access to Locked Accounts: True SMS validation allows users a much faster way to recover locked accounts. This cuts major dependency on the IT help desk and helps campuses cut costs.
Improved Security: While SMS vis Email is one of the ways to achieve SMS validation, true SMS is a much more secure way of achieving multi-factor authentication mitigating the security risks associated with SMS via Email.
