Two-Factor Authentication

With the recent advancement in computing power, cracking password becomes increasingly faster and easier. Looking back a few years ago, cracking 8-character password with all the combinations would take hundreds of year with supercomputing power to succeed but now it would just take mere hours to succesfully compromise a password. For this reason, password length and complexity has become increasingly harder for end-user to keep up with.

Two-factor authentication helps ease the problem of password management and dramatically increase the difficulty for an attacker. ECQ uses time-based token authentication to provide users an additional authentication factor to secure access to their important data. The time-based token authentication is able to work on most of the common mobile platform such as iOS, Android, Blackberry, and so on.
