How do I connect RSA SecurID (EMC) to MessageBird's SMS Gateway?

It's quite easy to connect RSA SecurID® On-demand (SMS) Authenticator to your MessageBird Account. This article describes how to get up & running for sending One Time Password messages in no time. Keep in mind that for the moment One Time Password for RSA SecurID is only supported by our old API (not the REST API); you can read the documentation on this API for more information.

RSA SecurID® On-demand (SMS) Authenticator configuration
