The Inventors of Tokenless Authentication


Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower

SecurEnvoy invented the tokenless market with its innovation of an SMS ready solution for remote authentication. Elements of its delivery were patented, namely pre-loading, to alleviate delays and signal issues and to make tokenless business grade.


Speed of deployment is key, and innovation in this space continued. SecurEnvoy have continually optimised the performance to what it is today – the fastest in the market in deploying 100,000 users per hour. This scales, whether you deploy 50 users or more; time is of the essence.

Advancing the authentication speed is also critical. When users all want to logon at the same time of day, throughput is important. At 100 per second, per server, the SecurEnvoy solution is fastest in its market.

The simplicity of use, deployment and management is made possible by bringing leading design to the market and keeping it available for only our customers. Innovation is not only bringing ideas and solutions to market, but its also ensuring you keep the IP where it is invented and for that reason we have three patents granted and two pending.

Simplicity is king. When deploying to remote users there isn’t time to educate the users in its use. So it has to be logical. To show how easy the SecurEnvoy solution is – there is a free trial and demo capability that allows you to experience its power. Its simple to install in less than 30 minutes, easy to deploy volumes of users and efficient management through the existing LDAP serer – true end to end market leading design.

A messaging method and system sends secure emails (14) by the email originator (10) removing the portion of the email (14) which is confidential (24) from the body of the email (14). The removed portion (24) is sent to a secure storage site (30). The residue (20) of the email (14) is sent to the intended recipient (12), together with a notification (22) that the confidential portion (24) is at the secure site (30). Secure storage site 30 then sends a SMS text message (38) to the recipient’s mobile phone (44) which has an authentication code (38) which the recipient (12) uses to establish identity and retrieve the confidential portion (24) of the email message (14) from the secure store (30). The secure store (30) emails the originator with notification (60) when the recipient (12) retrieves the secure portion (24) of the email message (14).

Multi-factor authentication apparatus pre-loads a first factor, for example a passcode, to user equipment such as a mobile telephone. The user subsequently initiates access to a protected product or service, triggering the apparatus to run a multi-factor authentication process, via an access device such as a computer connected to the Internet. The user enters the pre-loaded first factor, together with another factor such as a UserID and PIN. The pre-loading avoids vulnerability to communications problems at the time the user initiates access. Pre-loading is done every time an access session terminates for the user, either successful or failed and a user profile data store is used to manage passcodes in a manner that allows incorrectly entered first factors to be retried when delivery to user equipment is not possible.
