SMS is a way of contacting corporate and government agencies to provide one-off passwords, to access a network for instance.
This may seem slightly insecure, but this has all changed, due to Clickatell.
Clickatell has announced a partnership with RSA to provide two-factor authentication for mobile devices.
The authentication includes something you have, and something you know, providing a secure one off password, easily distributed via SMS.
The RSA SecurID® one-time expires after a short period, and is therefore low risk.
