Cronto releases lightweight visual authentication device

Already in volume production

Cronto introduces the new generation CrontoSign(tm) optical device for secure online banking.

The Cronto visual transaction signing solution is now available as a hardware optical reader that features a large colour screen, replaceable batteries and a new compact form-factor.

The new CrontoSign device uses a large 1.7″ colour TFT display allowing banking customers to review all transaction details on the same screen. Since all transaction information is instantly decoded and decrypted by the device from the CrontoSign image, the bank is fully in control of what and how is presented on the trusted display of the CrontoSign reader. The bank can choose, in real time, the exact message to display on the device to give the customer the best chance to spot a fraudulent transaction. This allows the bank to mitigate not only current attacks but even future threats posed by social engineering attacks and banking Trojans.

“We have been working closely with our customers to further enhance the usability and security features of the CrontoSign device. Being able to present all payment details in one simple view and using text colour and style to highlight any unusual activity to the customer was one of the key areas of this development.” says Igor Drokov, CEO, Cronto.

The CrontoSign Device is already in volume production and available to customers.
