Wellington-based Fronde Anywhere is partnering with South African fraud management specialist Radio surveillance Group (RSSS).
The deal will see RSSS sell Fronde's mobile phone-based multi-factor authentication technologies to South African organisations.
Fronde's TwoSecure two-factor authentication can be distributed to customers or staff as a java application that can be downloaded to the user's mobile phone. It then generates a one-time password that can be used for network access and other applications.
“Deployments of TwoSecure™ should prove highly beneficial for businesses in South Africa, where there is good mobile network coverage yet high levels of fraud,” says Caroline Dewe,
executive vice president of products and marketing at Fronde Anywhere.
RSSS director of technology Grant Weiderman says the system can cost-effectively protect networks, staff and customers without having to replace hardware tokens.
Fronde Anywhere, is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Fronde (formerly known as Synergy), the company that developed the Txt-a-park SMS parking payments system and Kiwibank's mobile banking application.
