BT launches 'high risk' cloud authentication

BT has announced the launch of a new authentication service that it said will enable businesses providing ‘high risk online services' to combat fraud and protect user identities.

The company said that BT managed authentication is aimed at organisations that attract large numbers of users to access a specific application, such as internet banking.

BT Global Services head of security and governance, Jeffrey Schmidt, said: “Whether it is protection from fraudsters or simply wanting to reassure consumers that their money or data is secure, many organisations are moving away from username and password towards stronger methods of authentication.

“Our new managed authentication service offers this level of protection but also removes complexity, cost and time constraints from a critical deployment.”
