HID Global’s ActivID® Soft Tokens provide proven, strong authentication for remote employees accessing corporate IT systems, and consumers logging on to online services, without the need to distribute hardware tokens.

Using Soft Tokens, end-users can conveniently access one-timepasswords (OTPs) on devices that they already carry with them, including smartphones, tablets, Internet browsers, and laptops. A simple provisioning process eliminates the logistic hurdles associated with hardware tokens, and allows organizations to deploy strong authentication – securely and cost effectively.

Soft Token licenses are based on activations, and can be re-assigned as needs change.

IT administrators can then use HID Global’s authentication solutions to manage these activations through a separate notification process.

All ActivID Tokens support the Initiative for the Open Authentication (OATH) HMAC-Based One-Time Password (HOTP) algorithm.
