Comodo And TeleSign Partner To Deliver Intelligent Authentication

Announce joint layered security solution combining digital certificates and out-of-band phone-based authentication

Los Angeles, CA and Jersey City, NJ, May 15, 2012 – Comodo, a leading Internet security provider, and TeleSign, the market leader in Internet fraud prevention and Intelligent Authentication, announce their joint layered security solution combining the strengths of digital certificates and out-of-band phone-based authentication. The joint solution helps address the recently updated FFIEC Guidance, HIPAA, PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, CJIS and serves other industries concerned with access management.

Two-Factor Authentication using out-of-band authentication and client certificates is easy to deploy, manage, and procure in any size institution. Several financial institutions have already replaced knowledge-based authentication such as challenge questions, in favor of the joint solution that affords their internal users and customers a better user experience and improved security.

"The joint solution delivers true two factor compliance that is seamless and requires no business-side integration," said Andrew Pynes, VP Enterprise Solutions, Comodo. "It is simple to configure, fast to deploy, and affordable."

"Our partnership with Comodo offers a single solution for customers seeking quick and effective layered security with the leading providers of digital certificates and two-factor authentication," said Dan Takahashi, Director of Business Development, TeleSign.

Already deployed by businesses of all sizes throughout the world, Comodo TF has been seamlessly integrated with TeleSign phone-based Two-Factor Authentication and will continue to work without the need for modifications or IT resources.
