Safeguarding Your Banking Applications

Learn how integrating second factor authentication into banking applications using soft tokens and One-Time Passwords (OTPs) can safeguard banking applications.

This technology allows banking applications to retrieve an OTP from a soft token stored in the Entrust IdentityGuard Mobile Soft Token application without needing the banking application to embed a SDK. Banks can leverage the security protection offered by Entrust Datacard without the need for a large investment in development resources. End users will temporarily switch to the Entrust Datacard application to approve the authentication for the transaction. Users do not need to perform any manual copy and paste actions of OTP values, as with traditional OTP applications. In this case, end users could be customers of banks or bank employees. Banks that have multiple mobile applications can use the same technique across all applications and re-use the same soft token across multiple applications.
