Adhere to new FFIEC guidelines

Reliably authenticate customers when they’re accessing your Internet-based services. Financial institutions are encouraged to adopt two-factor authentication methods which can include “out-of-wallet” authentication. The Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) recommends two-factor authentication as the security mechanism to access customer information or the movement of funds to other parties.


Three levels of authentication

Can be used independently or together

Choose level according to your business objectives for each transaction.

Level One

Level Two

Authentication indicators and score designed to predict likelihood data was provided by actual consumer.

Level Three - Experian’s knowledge-based authentication capability
