Fraud Prevention Through Better Security

Using SafeNet ViewPIN+ to deliver PINs over the Internet far surpasses paper-based PIN mailers or voice-based interactive systems. The encryption technology behind SafeNet’s ViewPIN+ is trusted by the world’s largest banks and government defense departments as well as Fortune 1000 companies. Sophisticated fraudsters have developed systems for identifying, intercepting, and stealing PIN mailers, while current online systems, such as interactive voice response (IVR), cannot be fully secured.
