Secure Reset

Passwords alone are no longer sufficient for protecting access to your business-critical data and applications. Secure Reset enables organizations to quickly and easily deploy multi-factor authentication through a full suite of out-of-band channels, including mobile app, SMS/text messaging, and telephone DTMF and voice biometrics. With Secure Reset authentication, individuals can combine a username and password with items they always carry with them—their mobile phone or their voice. 


Convenient Mobile Authentication

With our mobile app, users can authenticate via login to their smartphones and through push notifications.

Streamlined SMS/Text Messaging

Receive one-time use passcodes on your phone by text message and authenticate by typing them into your secondary login prompt.

Prefer Telephone? No problem.

Easily authenticate through keypad (DTMF), challenge and response, and/or voice biometrics. Interactive voice response provides a traditional keypad reset option, where users can dial a touch tone phone and answer numeric questions on the keypad to authenticate. If voice biometrics is the chosen authentication method, then the unique voiceprint of the caller is used to verify identity.

Password Reset Solution Success Story

A leading U.S. telecommunications company, with more than 25 million customers and 80,000 employees, received thousands of password reset calls each month to its IT helpdesk. As a result, live agents were not able to service users in a timely manner, and were unable to complete other important tasks. The company estimated that each password reset call cost approximately $25 in lost productivity for both the caller and the helpdesk agent. Just eight weeks after implementing the Core Security Password Reset solution, the system had automated 95 percent of all password reset calls. Based on the company’s own cost figures, the organization is now saving approximately $90,000 per month and has enrolled nearly every employee into the system.
