CYBG secures internet transactions with managed BT two-factor authentication service.

Security is the number one priority.

Online banking’s a big hit with customers. It’s a big target for fraudsters too. So Wilson Ferguson wanted stronger security for a growing number of online account holders. BT had an answer that could keep pace.

Now, over 20,000 business clients have two keys to their account: their own password plus one generated fresh for each transaction by a BT ActivIndentity token. Behind the scenes, a 4TRESS server checks everyone’s credentials, while BT takes care of everything. So Wilson can be sure his clients’ money and his company’s reputation are well protected. And clients know they’re safe and sound.
