Implementation of 2FA to Nasdaq web applications

During 2016-2017, Nasdaq implemented two-factor authentication (2FA) as a part of the login procedure to the following web-based applications: CMS Web, TRACK, NFM and Q-Port. The 2FA solution used was provided by SafeNet and users were authenticated with username, password and a one-time passcode generated by the SafeNet MobilePASS app.

On September 17, 2018, alternative 2FA methods to be used in the login process were introduced. The new methods are available in a portal called Nasdaq 2FA Service Center, and every 2FA user has received a direct e-mail containing a link to the portal at the start of the enrollment period. As Nasdaq aims to decommission SafeNet tokens by the end of 2018, every 2FA user should enroll to an alternative 2FA method before that date. Most of the new methods introduced do not require any local installation.
