Credit Unions Benefit from Comodo Two-Factor Authentication

Jersey City, NJ, June 4, 2009 - Comodo's Two-Factor Authentication process is popular with credit unions.

Comodo's Two-Factor process can authenticate online banking customers with

  • Usernames and Passwords
  • Digital certificates
  • One-time Passwords (delivered via phone call, SMS and/or email)
  • Security Questions and Secure Cookies

Comodos solution is easy to install and integrated seamlessly within a credit unions existing website. After the customer has installed a digital certificate, the online banking process works just the way it did before, minimizing the learning curve.

Comodo customers have experienced very little drain on their help desk, which further declines quickly after the first couple of weeks.

Comodo's Two-Factor process meet FFIEC regulations by requiring one of each kind of identifier:

  • Something the customer knows - (i.e., the customer's password)
  • Something the customer has - (i.e., the digital certificate)

Of the 100+ companies offering some type of multifactor authentication, Comodo is one of only a few companies that offer Two-Factor Authentication employing digital certificates. Other companies use complex algorithms and solutions.

Comodo Two-Factor Authentication even allows credit unions to authenticate themselves back to their online customers. This process of mutual authentication uses a special logo that assures the user of the legitimacy of the credit unions website upon a mouse over by the user.

This protects the credit union's customers from spurious copies of their websites arrived at through phishing, pharming and Man-in-the-Middle attempts.
