Biometric authentication is reshaping mobile banking.
Customers worldwide love the simplicity of using fingerprints or facial biometrics for accessing their mobile apps.
Accordingly, many financial institutions are now upgrading their mobile authentication strategy and looking into biometrics to replace the PIN/password and even digitally sign sensitive transactions. They know this enhances the user experience for daily banking operations.
Strong customer authentication and privacy
Gemalto Mobile Protector supports both fingerprint and face recognition with simple APIs for developers to embed this type of customer experience within their apps.
Gemalto Mobile Protector makes wise and privacy-friendly use of biometrics: no biometric data is stored in data centres or servers. It all stays within the user's mobile securely.
We provide a turnkey optimised user interface (UI) which allows FIs to quickly start a biometric project and evaluate how to integrate within their existing user experience. Our UI can also be customised with minimal effort to ensure no disruption with the banks' design and branding.
Our Gemalto Mobile Protector integrates a combination of proven security mechanisms – such as code obfuscation, encryption, key protection mechanisms with appropriate key management, device binding, and root and jailbreaking detection.
This solution helps comply with the revised requirements of PSD2's Regulatory Technical Standard (RTS).
