User name and password doesn't cut it anymore in the world of online financial transactions. New federal rules call for multi-factor authentication schemes to combat growing threats. The latest multi-factor measures focus on biometrics, advanced analytics, and out-of-band techniques utilising smartphones.
From the user perspective
With the CA ArcotID secure software credentials, users gain improved security of multi-factor authentication without changing their familiar user name and password log-in experience. Unlike other multi-factor authentication methods that often require extra steps such as obtaining and typing in a one-time-password, CA ArcotID strengthens the user name and password authentication process by transparently providing software-only, public key infrastructure-based, multi-factor authentication.
