INTRODUCING M-AEGIS™

Mobile banking and payments is exploding: Juniper Research forecasts more than 1 billion mobile banking users worldwide by 2017. Simultaneously, the roadblocks to mobile and online payments (NFC, BLE, QR) payments are disappearing with solutions such as host-card emulation (HCE) and secure-elements, clearing the way for explosive growth.

With such growth comes risk, and mobile devices have become the next big enticing target for criminal hacking. The financial services and commerce industries require the highest degree of security to fend off the onslaught from hackers and fraudsters.

m-Aegis™ is a one-stop, integrated solution to protect against a whole array of risks, including device spoofing, app tampering and man-in-the-middle attacks, by enabling multi-factor authentication of a mobile device and its associated mobile network identity. Unlike alternatives, m-Aegis™ does not create third-party or mobile-operator dependencies, meaning m-Aegis™ is globally deployable from day one, straight out of the box.

MULTIPLE POINTS OF ATTACK

Vulnerabilities can occur at many different levels, from around the user ID, device/hardware, application, SIM or on the IP channel:

With m-Aegis™ securing the mobile app, clumsy one-time-pins are dead. Today, users receive an SMS containing a PIN code which they then write, copy or have to remember, return to the site, then laboriously enter it; it’s annoying, error prone, and requires a dozen plus clicks. With m-Aegis, transactions are secured with just one click.

No more trade-offs. Security and usability for mobile applications and OTP: welcome to m-Aegis™ by Mistral Mobile. m-Aegis™ was launched and demonstrated at Finovate Europe 2015 event. Some of the audience comments about m-Aegis™:

“Showcasing how security can be strengthened without killing the user experience”
“A best in class”
“What a fantastic presentation, and a great product!!”

• Multi-factor binding verification of usage, user, device, application, communication channel and network ID, maximizing the security of all device-driven transactions such as HCE-NFC, BLE, Internet or QR Code
• Delivering simple and extremely user friendly experience to increase user confidence
No mobile operator permissions required, runs seamlessly on existing out-of-band channel using patent-pending encryption methods
• Effective substitute for OTP solutions
Globally scalable software-based solution based on most common and openly available mobile telecommunication standards
Risk-based verification allows provider to check every transaction; or alternatively only flagged ones
• Libraries and APIs easily integrated to mobile applications and back-end systems
