Evolving consumer expectations are driving businesses to develop additional capabilities for serving customers on their digital channels. Engagement is no longer limited to web and mobile. In our Digital First World it is imperative to make sure that the services and transactions supported on all digital channels are the same. The barrier to this is often authentication and fraud. In most businesses today, each channel has been developed with its own unique authentication model. This creates friction and frustration for the consumer, is expensive for the business to deploy and manage, and is a boon for the fraudster that seeks out the weakest link in the chain.
Uniken is at the forefront of creating a digital-first security paradigm that takes advantage of the ubiquity of mobile devices, and the rapid growth of mobile engagement, by positioning the businesses own mobile app at the center of a new, customer-centric security paradigm. The idea is simple: leverage the capabilities of the mobile platform to create a zero-trust security architecture, use the ease-of-use of mobile apps to create a frictionless, customer-friendly security experience, and then extend the benefits of this security to other channels. The objective: Secure, Authenticate, Transact.
