Best of Show Award - News Announcement


Oct 5, 2010 - Today SecureKey won a best of show award at the Finvate Fall 2010 show in New York. SecureKey presented solutions for online banking authentication and online shopping checkout. You can view the presentation online.

On October 4 and 5, 2010, FinovateFall 2010 returned to Manhattan with a two-day showcase of dozens of the biggest and most innovative new ideas in financial and banking technology from established leaders and hot young companies.

Handpicked from hundreds, the companies got a mere 7 minutes on stage to demo (no powerpoint allowed) their latest and greatest.

How they describe themselves:

SecureKey makes online shopping faster, easier and more secure. Leveraging today’s contactless chip cards, SecureKey lets cardholders complete online checkout forms with just a tap of their card. The solution is designed to benefit all parties. Users enjoy faster checkout while using a familiar behavior. Merchants experience increased conversion without requiring any site changes or integration. For card issuers, the SecureKey solution increases online card security, eliminates passwords, and makes their card top-of-wallet.

Although in its early stages, SecureKey already has partnerships with several payments brands and financial institutions globally.

What they think makes them better:

SecureKey offers banks and card companies a strong authentication solution that is attractive to consumers and transparent to merchants. This combination of benefits makes SecureKey a company to watch. Instead of requiring the customer to learn some new behavior, SecureKey leverages the cards that consumers already have in their wallet to make authenticating online as easy as paying in a store.

For high value and commercial banking clients, SecureKey also offers a touch screen SecureKey – providing a secure, easy-to-use terminal that simplifies the management of high value transactions while offering unprecedented levels of security.
