cybersecurityRSA and TeleSign have partnered to add a phone-based verification service to an RSA technology offering that works to help organizations prevent fraudulent transactions on their web portals.

Telesign said Wednesday it will provide voice or SMS one-time passwords for users of RSA’s Adaptive Authentication fraud detection platform.

Adaptive Authentication is designed to evaluate login activities within government, banking and healthcare websites in order to identify suspicious behavior.

The RSA platform’s new OTP feature will work to validate user identity before a person can access confidential information, according to TeleSign.

TeleSign says its verification technology currently secures 3.5 billon user accounts across more than 200 nations.
