  • SMS PASSCODE’s multi-factor authentication solution is real-time and session-specific and offers effective protection against modern internet threats including exploitation of stolen credentials in circulation due to the Heartbleed flaw 
  • SMS PASSCODE takes full advantage of contextual information – such as login behavior patterns and geo-location – to assess the threat level and automatically adjust the level of user authentication needed.


The customer needs to use the Enterprise Version of Sharefile, because it supports SAML/AD FS 2.0 Form based mode. Then we can use our normal way of securing Cloud Based applications, explained in the smspasscode admin guide.
