Easy Solutions Delivers Advanced Mobile Authentication
SUNRISE, Fla. --(Business Wire)--
Solutions, the Total Fraud Protection® company, today
launched the latest version of its authentication solution, DetectID,
which includes a new push authentication capability, providing banks
with a superior out-of-band authentication and user experience. The new
release of DetectID provides a framework for banks to leverage push
notifications technology to enable bi-directional communications with
customers to approve, on their phone, online activities such as login
request, transaction request, or changes to their personal online
profile. Additionally, with this technology integrated in mobile banking
apps, banks also have an opportunity to transform their existing alerts
offering from a reactive alert service to a proactive customer
engagement service, where customers can instantly take action on an
Push authentication is available as a software library for banks and
enterprises to integrate into their own mobile applications for seamless
authentication, or as a stand-alone mobile application. It's currently
supported for Apple (News - Alert) iOS and Google Android.
According to a recently released report,
global smartphone penetration surpassed 1 billion users in 2012 and will
total 1.75 billion by the end of 2014. As of December of 2013, one in
every five people in the world own a smartphone. This movement holds the
promise for safer and more convenient authentication solutions compared
to SMS One-Time Password (OTP) messages, which are not user-friendly,
can be costly, may inhibit user adoption and even drive some users away.
Easy Solutions DetectID with push authentication harnesses the
smartphone native security architecture t secure the device and
leverage it to authenticate customers in a way that minimizes user
experience friction points and reduces two factor authentication costs.
"Mobile authentication represents a major challenge for banks as they
seek to secure vulnerable end-points without compromising the end-user
experience," said Daniel Ingevaldson, CTO of Easy Solutions. "DetectID
is setting a new standard in mobile banking by offering effortless
mobile security and leveraging mobile banking applications to secure
DetectID with push authentication includes some of the following
Hardened End-Point Security: Push authentication messages can
only be sent to registered devices and are impossible to redirect,
greatly reducing Man-in-the-Middle attacks and account takeovers. Push
authentication also does not store any personal information and
eliminates the possibility of SIM redirection attacks.
Improved End-User Experience: End users don't need to wait for
a One-Time Password (OTP) request, email, or any other type of
inconvenient out-of-band authentication method to gain secure access
to their banking app.
Multi-Channel Support: Push authentication is part of DetectID
Authentication Framework which provides strong authentication methods
for all banking channels. DetectID also integrates with legacy
authentication schemes, enabling fast and simple migration.
Comprehensive APIs: DetectID includes comprehensive APIs for
self-service management, including device provisioning and activation,
as well as the management of the push notifications workflow.
Native SDK Support: Organizations can embed transparent
authentication in their mobile application using the DetectID SDK. The
SDK provides device authentication and push authentication technology
from within a native application. By transparently embedding push
authentication technologies, you can secure your customers' identity
without requiring them to download a third-party app.
Trusted Device with real-time mobile risk analytics and threat
deactivation: Easy Solution SDK harnesses the unique value
proposition of the Total Fraud Protection platform, which, in addition
to push authentication provides key metrics and data intelligence from
the device to make decisions on the transaction risk and extend
proactive protection that detect and block threats. By securing the
device first, organizations can securely leverage their customers'
mobile device for authentication.
Push authentication is also available with DetectID
Cloud, which provides strong multi-factor authentication for cloud
applications. The newest version of DetectID and DetectID Cloud are
available immediately from Easy Solutions and its business partners
worldwide. More information about DetectID can be found at: http://www.easysol.net/newweb/Products/DetectID
