Gemalto enables secure software only eBanking
Ezio Armored Application allows secure eBanking from any PC
Gemalto has launched a new entirely software-based solution that enables banks to quickly deploy secure eBanking applications on any PC.
The Ezio Armored Application secures eBanking end users against fraudulent and malicious cyber-attacks. The solution cuts validation processes of web applications as much as threefold, thus significantly reducing the demands placed on a bank's IT resources.
Based on a locked-down browser running within a dedicated desktop session, Ezio Armored Application establishes a secure connection to the eBanking website to protect against key logging and screen capture. This mechanism makes attacks such as man-in-the-browser or man in the middle much more difficult to carry out. Furthermore, it supports in-depth analysis of the security of end user environments, collecting comprehensive data for further assessments.
Alongside enhanced operational efficiency and more robust protection from attacks, Gemalto's latest secure banking solution also encourages high levels of end user adoption. For eBanking customers, installment is as straightforward as clicking on a link to download the application. Accessing the eBanking portal then mirrors the experience of a traditional web browser. And by facilitating the introduction of user-friendly PC applications, Ezio Armored Application further boosts a bank's brand image and identity.
"This new addition to Gemalto's existing eBanking portfolio enables us to tailor our offering to each customer's needs," said Håkan Nordfjell, Senior Vice President e-Banking and e-Commerce at Gemalto. "Gemalto's complete range of solutions, which combines secure software and devices, provides banks with optimal risk management tools. It stems from our experience working with our banking customers worldwide, constantly adapting our solutions to their legacy systems, country-specific requirements and the evolving threats they've had to combat."
