Nok Nok & CompoSecure Partner to Take Metal Credit Cards to a New Level By David Strom I got my first metallic credit card from Apple a few years ago. I thought it was more a curiosity than anything else. Soon after, my wife got a metallic card from Chase. American Express and Discover have...
One of the long-time FIDO supporters gave testimony to its biggest benefits at the recent Authentication 2020 conference. The speaker was Marcio Mello, who is the head of Product for Intuit’s identity and profile platform. The benefits are saving money and time when users have to login to their SaaS financial offerings from Intuit. Intuit was interested in FIDO...
With financial services providers anticipating the implementation of PSD2 regulations in Europe next year, The Paypers invited us to sit down with Netcetera and the Aite Group for a webinar last fall.  The full discussion was very rewarding and both the opportunities and challenges of compliance were discussed in detail. If you are interested, you can see...
In all of my years working in this industry, 2020 has been one of the most challenging ones. COVID-19 derailed business-as-usual for virtually every organization across every industry, forcing them to set aside their existing strategies and quickly pivot to deliver remote connectivity at a massive scale to accommodate their workforces, customers, and more.

A core component of our security architecture has been eliminated. The “secure perimeter” – an antiquated concept from the days when computers took up an entire room – has all but vanished. “Security”, in those...
This month is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Let me be blunt. If you don’t think you are responsible for cybersecurity – you are wrong. Think about the footsteps you leave in the digital sand, your digital persona, information that you would consider private, valuable and vital. Now, think about how those bits and bytes of...
It is not a surprise to say that passwords are broken. They were not designed to secure today’s connected economy. As an inventor of FIDO standards, we knew that the key to replacing passwords was a privacy-by-design specification that championed interoperability and decentralized the security topography. The Nok Nok™ S3 Suite goes beyond the standards....
