Encap Security Unveils Smart Authentication Solution to Card-Not-Present Fraud: FinovateSpring 2014 and Aite Group Webinar

Encap Security, the first and only in-app, banking-grade authentication solution specialist, will address the rise in card-not-present (CNP) attacks and a customer-centric approach to eliminating it in two upcoming events: FinovateSpring on April 30 and CNP Fraud: Preparing for the Post-EMV Spike Webinar with co-host Julie Conroy, Research Director of Retail Banking Aite Group, on May 7.

For years, EMV has been hailed as the hopeful savior to a U.S. card industry suffering $11.27 billion in fraud losses. As millions of credit identities flood the underweb as a result of recent attacks, U.S. credit card issuers, merchants and banks once again move to adopt EMV cards. However in Europe, online fraud doubled after EMV adoption as attacks against the plastic card shifted to CNP. The lesson learned: fraud does not simply disappear; it just moves to another channel – one where it is even easier to commit fraudulent transactions.

“The number spent on fraud prevention is $6.47 billion, and that’s just to lose $11.27 billion. How can that even be justified? We’re clearly not protecting the right thing in the right way. Time to think outside of the ‘authentication box’,” said Adam Dolby, Vice President of Business Development at Encap Security. “We need to stop thinking about security from a product perspective and focus on the customer. Say goodbye to inconvenient solutions that don’t solve the real problem – all the touch points where fraud can happen. Time for an approach that protects each and every access points in customer relationships – from logins to call centers to all types of transactions.”

“The bad guys are going to get in. Attackers will always find a way in where there’s enough reward. If we only react when there’s a breach, rather than stop them before it starts, we’re giving away the upper hand,” said Conroy. “Effective, successful protection requires scalable, nimble solutions that provide layered strategies, seamless consumer experience across all channels and well-designed feedback loop that adjusts and scales with breaches over time. Fraud prevention is a journey not a destination.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
