Banking Software Developer Data Center Inc. Adds Authentication Services From Authentify

CHICAGO, Nov. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Authentify, Inc., the leading supplier of two-factor authentication services to financial services firms, announced that Data Center Inc. (DCI), the privately-owned developer of iCore360® core banking software and related technologies, has agreed to supply its nationwide community bank clients with Authentify's phone-based authentication services for DCI's Inter@ct™ online banking features.

The agreement paves the way for DCI to offer community banks additional account protection against keystroke malware and man-in-the middle attacks.

"Authentify helps us provide our banks and their customers with greater protection against the increasing online criminal element," said Daren Fankhauser, DCI vice president of Research & Development. "Authentify has direct experience in our customer space, and we believe we selected the best."

DCI's iCore360® bank software and technology is used by hundreds of community banks that support local economies.

"These banks are often the backbone of their communities," said John Jones, DCI president and CEO. "The combination of Authentify and iCore360® ensures they can confidently offer their communities more high-value online services that are safe and secure."

Peter Tapling, president and CEO of Authentify, concurred. "When a Fortune 500 company like JP Morgan Chase is breached, it's a huge story, but JP Morgan's ability to cope is also huge," he said. "The community banks serviced by DCI need practically the same level of protection as JP Morgan Chase. They, however, must rely on partners like DCI, and we're happy to be a part of that protection."
