Benefits of OTP

Stealing a conventional password is not as difficult. Such actions as reusing passwords across multiple sites, downloading software, or clicking a link in a phishing email will put your security at risk. Exostar's OTP products will protects your account even if your regular User ID and Password are hacked as the criminal won't be able to retrieve the OTP PIN from your phone, mobile app, or a hardware token. With Exostar's OTP line of products, you will enjoy the following benefits:   

  • Stronger security (or level of assurance) than the conventional protection provided by permanent User ID and Password;
  • Stronger authentication through a dynamic OTP PIN that is sent to your mobile device, and expires after a single login;
  • Compliance with DFAR 252.204-7008;
  • Reduced risk of unauthorized access to your account.
