Online identity fraud is a significant issue in the financial services industry, and weve been seeking an easy-to-use, robust solution that enhances our ability to protect our customers, said George Rapp, CIO, Stonebridge Bank. Armored Online's solution allows us to offer our customers an easy mutual authentication system that is very easy to implement and that we can offer as a no cost option to all of our customers. There were several key factors that lead me to choosing Armored Online. It places the onus for authentication on the computers rather than our customer. It works across a wide variety of platforms, including almost any that run Java. It is one of the few solutions available that will help protect our customers against phishing, pharming, and man in the middle attacks. It is also based on well understood and tested security technologies.
