CloudCard+ makes Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) simple but secure. It allows customers to use their everyday mobile devices and biometrics (face or fingerprint) to strongly authenticate while shopping online and performing sensitive banking transactions like money transfer and payment. It provides a consistent authentication experience whatever the sales channel.
CloudCard+ satisfies PSD2 requirements regarding SCA, with which banks have to comply before September 2019. It is a swift to deploy and cost-efficient solution to replace SMS OTPs, which are not compliant with PSD2 SCA requirements.
Nathalie Oestmann, SVP Strategic Marketing and Innovation of IDEMIA’s Financial Institutions business, declares: “IDEMIA is thrilled and honored to receive this JUNIPER Research Best Payment Authentication Solution Award for its biometrics and mobile-based Strong Customer Authentication solution, CloudCard+. Our ambition is to enable financial institutions to strike the perfect balance between digital security for banking and an optimal payment services user experience through the mobile channel. Used by millions of end-users, CloudCard+ has been adopted by major banking groups to comply with PSD2 requirements for Strong Customer Authentication.”
