Duo Two-Factor Authentication Deployed in CSI Online Banking Platform

Computer Services, Inc. (CSI (News - Alert)), a provider of core processing, managed services, mobile and Internet solutions, reportedly deployed the Duo two-factor authentication (2FA) from Duo Security in its online banking platform.

CSI offers end-to-end technology solutions for financial institutions and corporate customers across the country and has implemented an online banking platform built with advanced features like online bill pay and Personal Financial Management (PFM). More than 140 financial institutions are currently making use of the CSI online banking platform to realize an edge ahead of the competition.

CSI also serves as one’s online banking host and delivers users’ Internet banking platform as a hosted service along with furnishing them with multiple opportunities to bring down cost and maximize profitability.

With Duo Security, CSI will now be able to deliver 2FA as an opt-in service to its clients enabling a much more secure online banking.

Derik Sutton, director of Internet business development at CSI commented, “With increasing concern over online security, we wanted to strengthen authentication beyond user names and passwords. After completing our due diligence, 2FA provided the most advanced solution to help our customers thwart potential cyber fraud. We chose Duo because it allows us to get true out-of-band authorization that can be tightly integrated within our online banking platform. Plus, their competitive pricing made it a realistic option for us to deploy.”

Duo Security made two-factor authentication radically easy to deploy, use and manage. Deploying two-factor authentication has traditionally been expensive and time-consuming — there is hardware to install, tokens to distribute, and user accounts to create but Duo Security supposedly lowered this barrier and expedited deployment with self-service enrollment.
