"While mobile banking, or m-banking, is here now, with 800 million smartphones already in circulation globally, m-banking is only going to grow," Carroll said. Prefacing his Finovate remarks, Carroll asked, "How do we make m-banking safe and practical? You can't hold your smartphone in one hand and your bank secure key in the other when walking down the street. That doesn't make our lives easier. A much simpler solution is using out-of-band, real-time, multi-factor authentication and transaction verification."
At FinovateEurope 2012, Carroll will present ValidSoft's solutions, including VALid® and VALid-SVPT. For details, see: www.validsoft.com/solutions
VALid® is a telecommunications-based multifactor authentication and transaction verification platform that provides protection across multiple electronic banking channels, including Internet, m-banking, IVR /contact-centre, mobile payments and Card-not-Present transactions.
Using patented voice-based Out-of-Band authentication and transaction verification, the VALid® platform combines visible and invisible protection against multiple threats, including Pseudo Device Theft, e.g. SIM Swap and Call-forward Unconditional (CFU) fraud, Man-in-the-Middle and Man-in-the-Browser (MitM/MitB). Phishing, key-loggers, screen scrapers etc. also are covered. The solution can also extend to three and four factors through a proprietary biometric voice verification plug-in, VALid-SVPT, and Proximity Correlation Logic; knowing where someone is or isn't.
ValidSoft's proprietary technology adds security by correlating the location of a financial transaction with a user's mobile device. The technology is able to make this correlation between the mobile device and the transaction in real-time. It does not track customers and maintains complete customer location privacy.
ValidSoft's partnerships include Adeptra, www.adeptra.com, which will offer ValidSoft's fraud management solutions to its clients. Adeptra is believed to be a global leader in customer communications.
In addition, ValidSoft has been awarded two EuroPrise Privacy Seals by the European Union for consumer privacy protection within its products.
