Authentication and fraud prevention company ThreatMetrix announced a new partnership with digital security company Gemalto. The two fintech players will offer “holistic authentication” to banks, payment services providers, credit card networks, international payment transfer companies, and fintech companies across the globe. Specifically, the companies have joined forces today to combine insights from ThreatMetrix’s Digital Identity Network with Gemalto’s authentication solutions. The user-friendly security solutions help financial institutions expand their online offerings securely.
“Authenticating digital identities has become essential for the financial services industry,” says Pascal Podvin, SVP of field operations for ThreatMetrix. “This allows financial institutions to deliver superior customer experiences while driving online revenue growth. Crucially, this also prevents massive losses from rising fraud attacks, particularly in cases of identity spoofing.” Podvin added that today’s partnership also helps banks “deliver superior customer experiences” and prevent “massive losses from rising fraud attacks.”
