inWebo MFA for financial services: PSD2 & strong authentication
Banks, financial services and interbank payment networks are subject to numerous regulations, including PSD2 , which requires the implementation of a strong authentication solution to validate payments and seal sensitive transactions.
PSD2 and Strong Authentication
Banks, interbank payment networks and financial services are the most popular targets for cybercriminals. They are in fact regularly targeted by cyber attacks that can be highly targeted and sophisticated: credential stuffing, presidential fraud, phishing and its avatars (man in the middle, man in the browser), SIM swapping and many others.
The financial sector handles a large amount of data, personal and, of course, financial. Yet the many points of contact, both internal and external, are vulnerabilities that are ready to be exploited by malicious people. Securing them is therefore imperative to protect customers, reputation and, ultimately, the industry's bottom line.
Beyond cyber-risks, financial services stakeholders are subject to numerous laws, regulations and standards. The PSD2, for instance, has had a significant impact on the payment ecosystem, not only on banks and new FinTech payment players, but also on consumers who are increasingly faced with new verification procedures for logging in or paying online.
With the PSD2, strong authentication becomes mandatory and the second factor sent by SMS - a solution that is neither practical nor secure - is not compliant. It is therefore necessary to implement an effective strong authentication solution without compromising on the customer experience or ease of integration.

Many risk factors
Online transactions and payments
They are an easy source of income for ill-intentioned individuals to attack, whether it is through phishing or identity theft.
They are the gateway to data and a major vector of attack for cybercriminals. Moreover, they are generally less well protected than websites.
The move to the cloud
This is a real godsend for hackers. Account spoofing gives access to a lot more data and information as the use of the Cloud becomes more widespread.
Non-revoked or reassigned employee access, remote access, BYOD... it is often more cost-effective and easier for hackers to design internal attacks to strip companies of personal data collected from their customers or employees.
Strong authentication, an obligation of the PSD2 to improve the security of online payments
The PSD2 directive obliges banks and other payment service providers to put in place the necessary infrastructure for strong authentication. Unfortunately, although this technique is effective against fraud, industry professionals regret that it lengthens the purchasing process and lowers the conversion rate.
Did you know that this is not the case for all multifactor authentication solutions (MFA)?
Indeed, there is a solution that can have a highly beneficial impact on the customer experience. A solution with a simplified and fluid connection experience: no more passwords to remember, no more SMS to copy!
