By Prasad

ThreatMetrix, a US-based online security provider, has collaborated with Dutch digital security firm Gemalto to transform digital authentication experience for global financial institutions.

The partnership, which aims to provide combined authentication and digital identity solutions, will focus on delivering authentication to banks, payment services providers, credit card networks, international payment transfer companies and fintech companies.

ThreatMetrix Digital Identity Network insights, integrated with authentication solutions of Gemalto, will help in protecting online customers from external attacks. The integration will also enable financial institutions to cover the entire spectrum of risk-based and strong authentication techniques.

ThreatMetrix senior vice president of field operations Pascal Podvin said: “Authenticating digital identities has become essential for the financial services industry. This allows financial institutions to deliver superior customer experiences while driving online revenue growth.

“The integration of risk-based and strong authentication provides smart authentication that’s secure, real-time and has minimial disruption for the customer experience.

“With ThreatMetrix and Gemalto working together, our customers are able to exceed customer requirements for smooth omni-channel experiences, while achieving compliance with regulators worldwide.”

Gemalto senior vice president of e-Banking and e-Commerce Hakan Nordfjell said: “Combining ThreatMetrix capabilities with Gemalto’s rich set of authentication solutions enables banks to optimize the balance between user experience, trust and security.

“We also help them comply with the latest regulations such as the Regulatory Technical Standards of PSD2. For banks, this will facilitate higher adoption of digital banking across their customer base, as well as targeting a reduction of both false acceptance and rejection rates.”
