Jun 14, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
Gemalto NV, a provider of digital security solutions, has announced that Raiffeisen Banking Group, an Austrian financial institution, has selected the Ezio Edge Optic solution to secure its online banking services.
The Ezio Edge Optic leverages the security of CardTAN1-compliant debit cards to authenticate users, as well as authorize and sign online banking transactions. The handheld device features optical sensors to detect the online banking transaction data entered and sent from the PC screen. Raiffeisen's online customers place the Ezio Edge in front of their PC screen and the securely encoded transaction data needed for verification by the user and signature generation are instantly read.
Johannes Schuster, board member of Raiffeisen Zentralbank, said: "For us, usability and security always comes first. With our CardTAN-compliant Ezio solution, we are ahead of the curve and once again reinforce our leading position in Austria. Mobility and flexibility are keywords in our time. Thanks to the portability of the Ezio Edge Optic our customers can conduct their online banking errands wherever and whenever they want, protected by the highest level of security."
Hakan Nordfjell, senior vice president of eBanking at Gemalto, said: "Trust is the most important aspect of the relationship between a financial institution and their end customer. Gemalto is pleased to be able to support Raiffeisen in enhancing that trusted relationship by expanding the scope of Internet services with the secure signing of transactions."
