Gemalto Releases eBanking Software
Gemalto launches Ezio Armored Application, a software-based solution that enables banks to deploy secure eBanking applications on any PC.
Ezio Armored Application is meant to secure eBanking end users against the latest generation of fraudulent and malicious cyber-attacks. In addition, the solution reduces the time of validation processes for web applications.
Based on a locked down browser running within a dedicated desktop session, Ezio Armored Application establishes a secure connection to the eBanking website to protect against keylogging and screen capture. This mechanism makes attacks such as man-in-the-browser or man-in-the-middle more difficult to carry out.
