Product Details

Cronto is an innovative patented visual transaction signing solution that enables banks and other financial institutions to effectively counter increasingly sophisticated "Trojan" and "Man in the Browser" attacks. Cronto delivers the most optimal combination of usability, security and cost of ownership by allowing users to verify and sign transactions anytime, anywhere.

What Is Cronto Technology?

Cronto utilizes a unique visual challenge contained in a graphical cryptogram consisting of a matrix of colored dots displayed on the customer's PC screen. The customer uses the camera in his mobile phone or a dedicated hardware device to capture this cryptogram by photographing the screen, instantly decoding, decrypting and displaying transaction details for user verification. If the image has not been tampered with, the customer is then presented with critical transaction information, like payment details, decoded securely from the visual cryptogram image.
