Smart devices, mobile phones and tablets are becoming the control hub for the myriad of connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) – as are bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in many organizations today. But this is creating unique and heightened security risks for IT professionals, such as higher exposure to data breaches, malware and compliance violations. BYOD is no longer an industry trend; it’s a fact of life for enterprise-wide operations and the IT organizations that must support them.
Al Ain Finance built its UAE operation using cloud-native banking software that optimized both its agility and resilience, especially during the global pandemic. As customers increasingly gravitated to digital channels, it became essential to secure customer access and all transactions using multi-factor authentication.
As the company took its next step with the addition of digital front-office omnichannel banking, it turned to HID Global for the vital consumer authentication portion of the solution. Pre-integrated with Al Ain Finance’s existing banking software, HID Global’s consumer authentication offering was easy to deploy under a tight deadline.
“We can now offer a growing set of banking services through efficient and seamless digital channels with the highest levels of identity assurance. The HID interface makes enrollment and use easy, secure and effective across many different types of devices, and because the solution was already integrated with our existing banking software, no customized development was required.”
