Native SMS Messaging for the IBM i

Improved delivery for system notifications and critical alerts

This IBM i software utility extends IBM i and Kisco Systems software native capabilities through integrations with third party web services.

SMS Messaging

This integration routes messages through a 3rd party SMS service instead of using the outdated email-to-text method. It works natively within the operating system and does not require any special software or system configuration.

Use kConnect to send SMS messages from the command line or from within your own applications. kConnect integrates natively with other Kisco products to issue alerts and notifications. When used with i2Pass, kConnect sends 2FA authentication codes in real time via SMS.

kConnect requires an account with a third party SMS service. Right now we support Twilio and Telesign. kConnect customers must have their own external account, which is an additional cost.

Get rid of unreliable email-to-text messaging and upgrade to native SMS today. Order kConnect here. Like all Kisco products, kConnect starts with a free 30 day trial.

Multi-factor Authentication

Use this integration to authorize user access events with third-party mobile authenticator applications. The following applications are supported:
