Company Joins Financial Leaders in Commitment to FIDO Standards for Strong Authentication
Sunrise, FL. – March 8, 2014 – In support of the accelerated transition to more sophisticated easy-to-use authentication standards, Easy Solutions, the Total Fraud Protection® company, today announced that it has joined the Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) Alliance. The company’s Total Fraud Protection® platform aligns with FIDO Alliance’s mission in addressing the lack of interoperability among strong authentication devices as well as the problems users face with creating and remembering multiple usernames and passwords.
“We are excited to further FIDO’s mission and strengthen our commitment for secure and easy authentication methods,” said Dan Ingevaldson, CTO of Easy Solutions. “Our customers and the industry as a whole will benefit tremendously from the collaborative minds of this organization and we look forward to helping shape the future of authentication standards.”
The FIDO Alliance is developing standard technical specifications for strong authentication, including a wide variety of more advanced authentication forms ranging from biometrics to the use of mobile devices as tokens. The first official draft of authentication specifications will be published by FIDO in the first quarter of 2014.
“The FIDO Alliance is proud of our associate member Easy Solutions for its dedication to the vision of an open industry authentication standard. They join a powerful FIDO ecosystem vital to widespread adoption of open authentication that simplifies the user experience while raising security and privacy at the same time,” said Michael Barrett, FIDO Alliance President and PayPal Chief Information Security Officer. “FIDO Alliance members embody the innovation that the open FIDO protocol enables. Easy Solutions joins FIDO Alliance members in rigorously defining and outlining the FIDO protocol’s anticipated release later this year.”
Established in July of 2012, the FIDO Alliance intends to change the nature of authentication by developing specifications that define an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that supplant reliance on passwords to securely authenticate users of online services. Easy Solutions joins FIDO’s established membership base of more than 100 global financial and technology leaders including Bank of America, MasterCard, BlackBerry, Microsoft and Discover Financial Services.
