Authentication Solutions for Finance

DigitalPersona Composite Authentication

Providing identity assurance for financial organizations

The Challenge

The financial sector continues to be battered by data breaches and account theft thanks to increasingly aggressive credential thieves. Despite these threats, users want and need convenience. They want easy access to applications and data via web portals and mobile devices—many times from their own personal devices.

The Solution

Financial organizations need to move beyond the standard static passwords. They need a solution that can be rapidly deployed, centrally managed, and can adapt to a wide range of internal and external use cases. Simply put, any avenue of access a bad guy could use to gain illicit access must be covered by strong authentication. And in an industry dominated by compliance needs, the solution also needs to be able to quickly provide auditors with a detailed view of past and current login compliance.
