Snippet: In many ways, the evolution of the card networks’ 3-D Secure protocol is a reflection of how the world of e-commerce has changed. As with any process of change, growing pains are inevitable; in the case of 3-D Secure, they’ve been there right from the start.

Snippet: In December last year, Entersekt gained FIDO Alliance certification for the FIDO2 server protocol. It had been a long and complex process, so you may wonder why we set out to expand our offering and gain that stamp of approval in the first place.

Snippet: These days, we’re more likely to leave home without our wallets than our mobile phones. But, while there’s no doubting the convenience of digital banking, there are an awful lot of stories in the news about accounts drained of funds in phishing scams, SIM-swap attacks, and malware-powered account takeovers.

Snippet: Two decades after its inception, the humble quick response (QR) code is growing in popularity amongst merchants and shoppers, shaking up the payments scene and forcing banks and regulators to sit up and take notice. No longer just used for payments, these two-dimensional codes are popping up everywhere, quickly becoming the darling of mobile payments’ methods.

But fraud has also kept pace as bad actors play the numbers game, launching huge volleys of cybercrime attempts.
