Authy

If you've ever gone to use a multi-factor authenticated app, and not had your authentication device nearby, but had another device on-hand, Authy is for you. Authy makes it easy to turn any of your devices into your second factor for authentication, ensuring that your codes are always at hand. Even if you don't want to use multiple devices, users will appreciate the ability to back up their authentication codes, so that if their authentication device is ever lost, they can easily recover the codes to a new device, without having to re-register the new device with their applications.

Ping Identity Platform

Ping Identity Platform is well suited for high-security applications that need to have secure data. It also ensures that no other user, other than you, can log in as you receive the verification code/call on your email or phone. Unless you confirm the user cannot log in, and hence it is very secure.

Ping Identity Platform

  • I believe it is very secure & not sure if it needs any improvement as such
  • Only suggestion would be it should not ask users to re-confirm if the session is still active

It really cannot get much easier. Simply sign in, verify the device and off you go. I have found Authy to be very easy and almost identical across all the devices I use. I am disappointed about the slow update process. Authy could use some updating, but I have not seen it yet.

I've never had to contact Authy's support. Of course, that's because Authy is so simple and easy to use that there hasn't been any need to. Authy correctly implements the time-based one-time password (TOTP) protocol, and becomes it conforms to the standard, it easily replaces Google Authenticator for your needs.

The Ping Identity Platform is very easy to use. It is highly secured and reliable. The customer support is superb as well. I would highly recommend it.

Alternatives Considered

Authy

Similar, Authy seems to have slightly better UI.

Ping Identity Platform

Two-way authentication and ease of use. I've used several applications that just email a link but never ask for a verification code. By entering the verification code you are sure that the site is safe, secured, and reliable. Using Ping, we can ensure no one other than you will access the application using your credential as you can log in only after you confirm using the verification code that you receive on your personal email or device.

Return on Investment

Authy

  • We need 2FA to work with many of our corporate clients, and Authy makes it easier. We haven't run the numbers, but it's probably saved at least a day or two of hassles when juggling devices.

Ping Identity Platform

  • Avoid information theft by ensuring the user truly has legit access to it.
