Simple Methods for ASPs to Improve User Account Security: Benefits and Economics of Strong Two-Factor Authentication Platforms

Most people have more than 25 online accounts for shopping, storage, subscriptions, banking, gaming and social media. Typically, the websites ask users to create and manage static passwords as part of the login process. Recent high profile security breaches at major online websites tell users static passwords are not the answer. Even recent SMS security additions to consumer websites do little to address the issue.
