How it works
Add an additional layer of customizable out-of-band authentication
Create a customizable layer of friction when and where you need it
Use SMS/text, email or voice response to authenticate and validate identity
SMS message is sent to your end customer (which can include purchase amount) with a YES/NO or Security Code response to confirm or provide authorization for a transaction.
Automated email is sent to your customer with a link the customer can click which initiates a customized authentication based on your options.
An automated outbound call is initiated to your customer prompting the customer to consent or decline authorization.
SecureLink can work in conjunction with gSCAN to validate customers by prompting for a scan of an identity document.
Yes, the SMS/text message to your customers is customizable. When using the email based security code, the email format and logo can be customized to your look and feel.
If incorporating the KBA questions into SecureLink, the content of KBA questions is not customizable. However, you can choose from 1 to 10 questions.When using email, the email format only can be customized to your look and feel.
Many GIACT customers use SecureLink as part of their on- boarding screening process in conjunction with gIDENTIFY®/gOFAC® to ensure there is no account takeover in process. By sending the customer in process of onboarding an out- of-band message, they are able to work to ensure fraud is being stopped at the front door and they are not onboarding malicious individuals.
Others use it for existing customers requesting changes to their payment and/or profile information to work to ensure the request is being made by the true account holder. This technique has helped to deter diversion of money and/goods to a fraudster’s account and/or address as part of a fraud scam. SecureLink has many uses and can be customized to fit your business needs.
