Winners Honored at the Golden Bridge Awards Dinner and Presentation in New York City on August 10, 2011

Copenhagen – August 12, 2011 –SMS PASSCODE® has earned the prestigious Golden Bridge Awards title for their SMS PASSCODE version 5 technology leading two-factor authentication solution. The coveted annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, case studies, product management, public relations and marketing campaigns and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest and new start-ups. Winners were honored in New York on Wednesday, August 10, 2011 during the 3rd annual awards dinner and presentations.

SMS PASSCODE has quickly established itself as the de-facto standard in a new generation of real-time two-factor authentication solutions. Essentially, a user first enters user name and password and it is not until that has been validated, that SMS PASSCODE generates and sends a real-time code via SMS, voice call or secure e-mail that is only valid for that particular login attempt or session. Once the code is entered and validated, the user is granted access. This is a more secure login process at lower costs than seen in the first generation hardware token based solutions.

More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2011 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on August 10, 2011 in New York attended by the finalists, industry leaders, and judges.

“It’s an honor to be named a winner by Golden Bridge Awards for this esteemed industry and peer business award,” said Lars Barthold Nielsen, Vice President, SMS PASSCODE. “These awards are yet another testament to SMS PASSCODE’s ability to deliver technology leading modern two-factor authentication solutions protecting users against the modern threats on the Internet .”
