Datablink Releases Mobile 110 Authentication Solution

Serves as an Easy, Cost-Effective Replacement Option for Existing Mobile Apps Using Outdated SMS OTP Authentication

TYSONS CORNER, VA--(Marketwired - November 29, 2016) - Datablink, Inc., a global provider of advanced authentication and transaction signing solutions, today announced general availability of Datablink Mobile 110.

Following NIST's recent guidance that no longer recommends the use of SMS OTP authentication, an ever-growing number of organizations worldwide are seeking options to swap their existing SMS-based authentication systems.

An easily deployed replacement solution for those aging, insecure SMS OTP authentication systems, Datablink Mobile 110 uses push technology for authentication and transaction signing on a smartphone or tablet, and offers added security, usability and delivery quality through a lightweight SDK that is easily embedded into existing apps:

  • No need to switch between apps to read and input an OTP
  • No phone line required
  • No vulnerability to SMS redirecting Trojans
  • No vulnerability to SS7 session hijacking
  • No susceptibility to delays

Datablink Mobile 110 serves as a fast, easy alternative that remains cost effective while offering proven protection for any type of business, including financial institutions, insurance agencies, e-commerce sites, and loyalty card companies.

"We are pleased to release Datablink Mobile 110 at this crucial time when countless businesses are looking for powerful, yet affordable replacement systems for their existing SMS OTP authentication," said Alexandre Cagnoni, CEO at Datablink. "Not only does Datablink Mobile 110's lightweight SDK allow existing apps to rapidly switch from SMS OTP to push-based authentication, but it's also encrypted and offers streamlined usability. We're positioning this launch as a clear replacement choice -- as a user-friendly, all-in-one solution capable of signing transactions, approving online and in-store purchases, and granting authorized access."

Datablink Mobile 110 complements the company's complete mobile token solutions based on the award-winning Datablink Mobile 200 token that features online and offline authentication and transaction signing.
