Secure Computing will next week release a software authenticator that allows remote users access to virtual private networks and applications via one-time pass codes.

The codes are generated on users’ personal mobile devices or laptop PCs.

The MobilePass product is designed to support VPNs, Citrix thin-client applications, Outlook web access and a host of other pieces of web-based software, said Secure Computing.

"A growing number of companies are relying on mobile phones to help their workforce stay connected to their core businesses," said Sally Hudson, an analyst at IDC. “With products such as MobilePass, the mobile workforce has the flexibility and convenience of using the mobile device they already carry with them everywhere.”  

Hudson said it would appeal to companies that have deployed mobile phones in large numbers and would like to use that investment when implementing a two-factor authentication strategy.
