Service companies with large amounts of customer payment data require a high level of protection and have to meet PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliance requirements.
The PCI DSS regulations stipulate that the company’s internal system login cannot be protected with a password alone.
The regulations also stipulate that employees cannot remotely access networks with sensitive information using only a password.
SAT Mobile ID two-factor authentication from Secure Access Technologies offers a good solution. Employees must click on their SAT Mobile ID in addition to their password.
Instead of expensive smart cards or tokens, SAT Mobile ID tokenless two-factor authentication leverages the employee mobile phones instead of the conventional hardware tokens and provides improved user experience. SAT Mobile ID results in much reduced down time and operational costs. It is the cheapest and most efficient way to ensure PCI DSS compliance.
