Fortress Identity CEO talks MFA at VISA LATAM Security Summit 2019
Fortress Identity‘s CEO Alessandro Chiarini is discussing true multi-factor authentication at this week’s 2019 Visa Latin America and Caribbean Security Summit in Miami.
The two-day, invitation-only event features extensive discussions on securing payment ecosystems, the state of global online fraud, and consumer authentication. Chiarini is participating in a panel on ‘Creating New Secure Ways to Pay and be Paid’ moderated by Allen Cueli, vp of payments products for Visa Latin America and the Caribbean.
“True MFA relies on three factors: possession, knowledge and inherence,” explains Chiarini. “Two-factor authentication is still the norm because establishing inherence is so technically complex. But the fact is that robust, flexible, easily implemented biometric authentication is available today and can be incorporated in any mobile app with a minimal amount of code.”
Fortress Identity’s mobile SDK solution offers a combination of face, fingerprint and voice biometrics and passive behavioral factors with multifactor authentication including device, email, geolocation and device ID. The company was recently invited to speak at Geek Fest at Nova University about the three “must-haves” of mobile multi-factor authentication.
