Gemalto announced that InterSwitch is deploying its complete Ezio strong authentication solution to secure their e-payment services in Nigeria.
InterSwitch is a provider of secure electronic payment solutions in Nigeria and comprises 25 member banks. Gemalto supplied its Ezio Strong Authentication Server and acted as server integration partner. The company also delivers EMV card readers and unconnected tokens, all with InterSwitch’s visual corporate identity.
With Gemalto’s solution, InterSwitch enables banking customers to perform secure e-transactions either using an EMV card and reader or a token.
Ezio enables InterSwitch member banks to enhance security for e-commerce by replacing static passwords with strong authentication. Users can pay their bills and taxes or buy airline tickets in a more secure and convenient manner, by authenticating themselves with a one-time password using the device. They can also access online banking services, such as fund transfer, with increased security.
