Stronger, More Cost-Efficient Security

Legacy two-factor authentication solutions, whether they employ hard tokens or soft tokens, often result in a complicated user experience and high operating costs.

BlackBerry® 2FA (formerly known as Strong Authentication by BlackBerry) leverages your existing iOS®, Android™, and BlackBerry® devices to deliver a simple, modern user experience that protects your organization’s critical systems, results in far fewer helpdesk calls, and doesn’t compromise on security.

BlackBerry 2FA is offered in the Application and Content Editions of the BlackBerry® Enterprise Mobility Suite.

Key Benefits

Easier Provisioning, Management, and Support

BlackBerry 2FA has a simple activation procedure, even on personally-owned devices or devices managed by other MDM solutions. No hardware tokens to ship or seed files to manage.

Recovering PINs, resetting or replacing tokens, and supporting users can increase operational costs. BlackBerry 2FA uses existing passwords and never goes out of sync. It’s so easy to understand, users don’t get confused – they simply get access.

It’s What Users Expect

Users demand a great experience. They don’t want to remember PINs or manually copy numbers from one device to another. BlackBerry 2FA allows users to leverage a password they already use every day, along with a simple tap on the device of their choice. It’s what they expect from a modern security solution.


BlackBerry 2FA provides two-factor user authentication via a password and a user’s device. The password employed is one they already know, such as their Active Directory password, or even their device password. The device is validated using Certificate-Based Authentication (CBA), unlike other solutions employing consumer-grade SMS.

Connection to your internal systems is provided via the BlackBerry 2FA Server and BlackBerry® UEM – even for devices that aren’t managed under BlackBerry UEM.
