BRACKNELL, UK, 24th January 2017 – Authlogics today announced that it has appointed the Dubai, UAE, based value added IT distributor – EliteVAD, to grow the customer base for its multi-factor authentication platform across the continental Middle-East and Africa, focusing on the enterprise market and specifically the financial services sector.
Authlogics recently launched its Authlogics for Retail Banking. The platform enables banks to replace hard-tokens and passwords with highly secure, convenient and consistent 1.5 Factor Authentication (1.5FA), 2FA and 3FA logon methods. Authlogics for Retail Banking can be deployed for customers accessing online, mobile and telephone banking services, as well as providing additional layers of security for ATM and Point of Sale devices.
Channel Sales and Business Development at EliteVAD, Samer Nassif, states: “We are excited by the innovative, fresh and alternative approach Authlogics takes to traditional authentication and transaction verification methods. It perfectly complements the EliteVAD security solution portfolio.”
CEO of Authlogics, Steven Hope adds: “Our multi-factor authentication platform will sit alongside EliteVAD’s impressive set of best-of-breed technologies. We have chosen them to represent Authlogics as they have the industry expertise and focus on solving information security, identity and authentication challenges.” Hope continues: “Authlogics already has an office in South Africa, and working together with EliteVAD, we will grow our market share throughout the continental Middle-East and Africa.”
The appointment of EliteVAD follows the announcement earlier in January, regarding the expansion of Authlogics across mainland Europe, through its partnership with Portland Europe in The Netherlands.
