Combat Online and Mobile Banking Threats
Mitigate Social Engineering Attacks
OneSpan Cronto solutions strenghten protection against account takeover and phishing attacks as well as banking Trojans, Man-in-the-Middle (MitM), and Man-in-the-Browser (MitB) attacks.
Cronto solutions create a unique authorization for each transaction using details such as payment recipients, account numbers, transaction amounts, or any other text or messaging the bank wants to send. This solution preserves data integrity and ensures authenticity, rendering any changes made to a transaction after it has been electronically signed invalid.
Simple Scan and Sign
Excellent User Experience
Cronto solutions enable fast adoption and are intuitive to use. The “what you see is what you sign” principle is ideally suited for banks and FIs looking to secure digital transactions without compromising on user experience.
When a user initiates a banking transaction, the details of that transaction are encrypted and presented in a colored QR code. The user simply scans that code and signs the transaction. Cronto solutions offer a passwordless authentication method as no manual input is required to confirm banking transactions.
Secure Channel and Transaction Authorization
Take Control of Transaction Authorization
One of the biggest challenges in combating social engineering is educating and guiding the banking customer to recognize a scam before being tricked into authorizing fraudulent transactions.
By deploying OneSpan Cronto solutions, the bank is in charge of the authorization process, and the trust decision is taken out of the user’s hands. Only the bank can initiate the creation of a Cronto code, and only the intended recipient’s device can scan the code. All data is encrypted and the secure communication channel ensures message authenticity – the transaction authorization request originates from the bank. In addition, banks can decide to visually alert their customers of high-risk transactions.
Cronto solutions work perfectly together with OneSpan’s Risk Analytics and Intelligent Adaptive Authentication Solutions. By combining solution stacks, banks can dynamically detect fraud, calculate risk scoring, and apply the right level of authentication for each unique transaction in real time.
Achieve PSD2 Compliance Requirements
Achieve PSD2 compliance in a quick and convenient manner with a seamless customer experience
OneSpan Cronto solutions meet PSD2’s Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) and dynamic linking requirements.
These solutions work according to the “What You See Is What You Sign” (WYSIWYS) principle. The payment information is encrypted into a visual code and is — after scanning — shown to the payer who can check the transaction details before signing.
With a “passwordless” approach, a user doesn’t have to trouble themselves with entering transaction data manually onto a device which will ensure fast adoption and high customer satisfaction.
Enable Hybrid Deployments
Satisfy your customers, offer them a solution tailored to their needs
Deploying a solution that ensures fast adoption and fits your customers’ needs can be challenging. OneSpan Cronto solutions are available in a mobile or hardware versions and work offline to deliver continuity when connectivity is poor. With Cronto, banks and financial institutions can deploy a solution that provides a consistent and secure user experience across digital channels while offering their customers a choice between a hardware or software authenticator.
