TYSONS CORNER, Va., April 21, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Datablink, Inc., a global provider of advanced authentication and transaction signing solutions, today announced that Policard, a leading electronic payments provider in Brazil, selected the Datablink Mobile 200 app to strengthen security for its customers' debit and credit card usage as well as at ATM machines.
More than 10,000 Policard customers receiving governmental and employer electronic payments or other benefits will use Datablink Mobile 200, an advanced mobile app for smartphones that provides a simple, highly secure method of accessing Policard's online accounts.
It's specifically designed to prevent unauthorized access and fraudulent online transactions stemming from threats such as stolen static passwords and the latest social engineering attacks. Rather than requiring a user to physically type a code into a device to generate a one-time password, Datablink Mobile 200 allows customers to quickly use their smartphone to create a secure out-of-band connection with the back end of a financial institution and confirm their identities and transactions.
By partnering with Banco24Horas and implementing the Datablink Management API, Policard will quickly enable customers to use the Datablink 200 mobile app to gain enhanced security for physical ATM transactions as well as for online banking conducted directly through Policard.com.br. Both access options offer easy, fast protection.
"Policard seeks to continually enhance the value and experience as well as the security for our customers," said Luciano Mathia Penha, vice president at Policard. "Our selection of Datablink's mobile app for advanced authentication and transaction security is yet the latest example of our commitment to use the most innovative technologies to improve and differentiate our services that offer convenience as well as peace of mind."
"Datablink is pleased to name Policard as one of its latest customers to choose Datablink Mobile 200 – a security solution that harnesses both the simplicity of using your own smartphone and the power of Datablink's unique authentication and transaction signing capabilities," said Shlomi Yanai, President and CEO at Datablink. "Policard and its thousands of users will be further empowered to help maintain their security and easily approve access and transactions – fighting off cyber thieves in a way that truly prevents fraud."
