Don’t Build Your Own 2FA. Integrate A Cloud-Based API Solution.


A few weeks back was Twilio’s user conference, SIGNAL. I was fortunate enough to present with one of our customers, Andy Fleming from, about why integrating a cloud API for strong authentication is FAR better than trying to build your own in-house solution. Authy has built a powerful yet simple authentication solution over the past 4 years that is in use today by companies like Dell, VMware, Coinbase and more.

If you couldn’t make the user conference, no worries. All the presentations were recorded and are now accessible online for free! So if you are wondering how to ensure your applications are more secure, then check out this video and take a look at Authy.

By the way:

If you enjoyed SIGNAL—or if you missed it entirely—here’s a second chance. Twilio packaged up the best content from their flagship SIGNAL Conference in San Francisco and is bringing it directly to the UK. Plus, there will be unique new speakers, hand-picked especially for the London event.
