Gemalto launched a credit card to combine one-time password security capabilities with standard payment. This enables banks to provide a single card that delivers both payment and increased security for online transactions. The new Gemalto Ezio product is immediately available in the United States.
The card’s online secure password feature is activated by pressing a button on the face of the card. A one-time code is digitally generated and displayed.
The card becomes a second factor of authentication, enabling the user to enter this unique and non-reusable numeric code on a Web page, in addition to their user name and password.
As part of the solution, Gemalto provides a platform that is plug and play with existing banking systems for the online verification. The server verifies user authentication for online transactions and account access. Gemalto also offers complete personalization and fulfillment services.
