2FA for Government Organizations

Smart 2FA can provide e-governments with a single intuitive and multichannel API to trigger 2FA for any important event.

Most popular applications rely on two-factor authentication (2FA) with one-time password (OTP) as the best method to verify user identity when signing up or logging into online applications.

According to a recent Google Security report, receiving a secondary SMS code blocked 100 percent of automated attacks, 96 percent of bulk phishing attacks, and most direct, targeted attacks.

Communications service providers (CSPs) and others in the communications industry can better serve their government and non-profit organization customers by enabling 2FA that is specifically tailored to their needs. One of the ways to do this is with Telestax Smart 2FA.

  • Access or pay for automotive renewals
  • Request passport renewal services online
  • Access and pay taxes online securely
  • Provide the government with a verified tip on a national emergency threat
  • Secure e-filing services for trademarks or patents
