Media Alert: An overwhelming response received by customers when PSIS launched SafeKey using RSA SecurID® Authenticator tokens.

  • 03 August, 2006 15:45

<p>Only 10 days ago, PSIS, one of New Zealand’s longest-serving financial organisations, successfully launched the RSA SecurID® solution to safeguard its Internet banking customers with strong, two factor authentication.</p>
<p>How it Works</p>
<p>The customer’s identity is verified in two ways; using something the user knows (a password) and something the user has (a SafeKey hardware token). The token – small enough to put on a key ring – has an LCD display that displays a new, unpredictable code every 60 seconds. The user combines this randomly generated number with his or her user name and password to log into their account via the PSIS Internet banking site.</p>
<p>Customer Results</p>
<p>SafeKey has proved popular with customers and staff in the first ten days since launch. So far 12% of PSIS’s active Internet Banking customer base have adopted the technology and the strong level of demand continues.
“This is all beyond our expectation” says Mark Wilcox, Manager – Risk &amp; Finance Projects of PSIS. “With e-fraud on the rise, it is exciting to offer our customer base a stronger level of security for their online banking. The tremendous response underlines the importance and demand of such a product.”</p>
<p>Note to Editor</p>
<p>Mark Pullen, Director of RSA Australia &amp; New Zealand or Mark Wilcox, PSIS, is available for comment on two factor authentication. If you would like to talk to either Mark’s, please call me on (02)9212-3848 or email sarah@kinetics.com.au to arrange a time.</p>
<p>Thank you and best wishes</p>
<p>Sarah Mulvin</p>

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
