FIDO Solutions for Telecom

PROTECT COMPANY, EMPLOYEE AND CUSTOMER INFORMATION WITH SIMPLER,
STRONGER AUTHENTICATION BASED ON OPEN AND SCALABLE STANDARDS.

Telecom companies and service providers continue to evolve service delivery and business processes to online and mobile services, but
are constantly trading off fast and easy access with robust authentication security.

Security based on FIDO Specifications turns that around and makes online security a simpler and better user experience
while providing stronger security and reducing risks for telecom.
