Green Armor Helps Banks Meet New FFIEC Authentication Guidelines: Security Technologies Exceed New Standard for Over Five Years

Green Armor Solutions noted today that its authentication technology exceeds the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)’s new standards for online authentication.

Hackensack, NJ, July 12, 2011 --( Green Armor Solutions, a leading provider of information security software, noted today that its Identity Cues authentication system exceeds the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC)’s new standards for online authentication.

The FFIEC Guidance, “Supplement to Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment,” published last week and scheduled for enforcement starting on January 1, 2012, endorsed Green Armor’s long-standing approach of identifying devices based on a combination of varied characteristics including configuration values, IP addresses, geolocation information, and other parameters. The same guidance criticized as inadequate the many products that rely solely on cookies or other weak means of identifying computers.

While its security meets FFIEC guidance requirements, Green Armor also delivers unparalleled ease of use. Green Armor’s software leverages a unique blend of psychology and technology to help deliver strong user and site authentication with maximum user convenience. Its products help secure numerous financial, healthcare, and other environments.

“For several years, Green Armor has warned of potentially serious risks related to the use of inadequate authentication technology, and stressed the need for robust products such as ours. Now, after several high profile breaches reported in the media, the FFIEC is issuing the same warning. Half a decade after we first brought our unique authentication technology to market, the governing body of the US banking industry officially recognizes that the risks that we mentioned are real and have had real consequences, and that technology such as ours is highly advisable from a security standpoint,” said Joseph Steinberg, C.E.O. of Green Armor Solutions.
