Cardinal Announces 2ID Select

MENTOR, OH — CardinalCommerce announces that 2ID SelectTM, the financial services version of its award-winning Consumer Authentication solution, Centinel SelectTM, is now available. 2ID Select’s rules-based Consumer Authentication allows the bank to create real-time rules for authentication transactions. Rules-based authentication allows for less consumer friction, increased sales and less fraud during the online shopping experience. Cardinal will showcase 2ID Select at the Payments 2014 Show, sponsored by NACHA, April 6-9 in Orlando, Florida.

“At CardinalCommerce, we are proud of our ongoing product development initiatives. We continue to maximize technology to provide up-to-date Consumer Authentication methodology to best meet the changing needs of our bank clients and their cardholders,” said Bruce Poore, senior vice president of Global Financial Services at Cardinal.

Issuing banks will benefit from using 2ID Select as part of their card issuing security suite by providing additional protection against fraud for their customers’ accounts. 2ID Select uses an arsenal of tools, providing both quiet and active Consumer Authentication, depending on the type and amount of each transaction, the device, the IP address and more, to balance the risk of the transaction with the customer’s experience.

Mike Keresman, Cardinal’s chief executive officer, said, “2ID Select is a natural progression to provide more flexibility and security for our bank Customers. With EMV just around the corner in the US, banks will be prepared and protected. Their One Connection to Cardinal will help FutureProof their payment needs.”

Through their One Connection to Cardinal with 2ID Select, banks and credit unions can offer their cardholders an efficient way to protect themselves from the impact of fraudulent transactions.
