Google Apps Gets Two-Factor Security

judgecorp writes “Passwords alone are not enough to secure access. Many organisations require two-factor authentication with a token. Google just added free two-factor verification to Google Apps, sending a one-off token to the user’s mobile phone. It’s good to have this for free, and it backs up Google’s assertion that cloud apps are more secure — but it doesn’t answer how it helps if an intruder is getting into Apps through a lost or stolen phone.”
