The imminent demise of specialised security tokens for user and transaction authentication
The demise of the once heralded specialised user security token is not only being driven by an unwieldy user experience, inflexibility in operations, and high total cost of ownership, but also by its inability to deal effectively with the ever increasing sophistication of internet and mobile banking assaults.
Intelligent mobile authentication mechanisms address these problems and also provide exciting opportunities for innovative workflow development.
