Authlogics Is Gold Sponsor for Financial Services Technology Dialogue

BRACKNELL, UK, 8th September 2015 - Authlogics (a Winfrasoft company), a specialist in multi-factor authentication today announced that the company is a gold sponsor for the Financial Services Technology Dialogue conference, which takes place on 14th and 15th September 2015 at the Berystede Hotel. Ascot.

Financial Services Technology Dialogue will delve into critical IT issues that will impact the financial services sector in 2016, including regulatory compliance, security and innovative technology. Authlogics has a strong and proven track record providing innovative front and back-office authentication solutions to financial institutions around the world, such as the UK investment company JM Finn & Co, which is using the award-winning PINgrid.

“Financial sector businesses are currently facing a big challenge, particularly when it comes to improving the online customer authentication and transaction verification process,” comments Head of Sales at Authlogics, Fred Astfeldt. “These organisations know they need to be thinking about replacing their archaic key-ring tokens and passwords-based logon procedures, but what they choose must meet a long list of key criteria.” Astfeldt continues: “It needs to present a very low risk, be device agnostic, operate across national borders and also promise longevity, without the burden of excessive running costs. Furthermore, it has to deliver a great experience to the end-user.”

At Financial Services Technology Dialogue the Authlogics team will join senior representatives from major financial institutions including Allianz, Banco Do Brasil, Bank of America, Barclays, Barclaycard, BNY Mellon, Citi, Deutsche Bank, Fidelity, Lloyds Banking Group, LVE, Mastercard, Morgan Stanley, Nationwide, Old Mutual plc, Prudential, RBS, Royal London, Standard Chartered, UBS, Visa and Western Union.
