SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - October 20, 2016) - Danal, Inc., a global leader in mobile identity and authentication solutions, today announced that it has added two prominent executives from the payments and eCommerce industries to its Board of Directors and Board of Advisors.

Bill Gajda has become a member of the Danal Board of Directors. He currently serves as Visa, Inc.'s SVP, Global Head, Innovation and Strategic Partnerships and was previously Global Head, Visa Mobile. In Bill's current role, he is responsible for leading Visa's innovation and partner activities in CEMEA, and is responsible for the Visa Ready and Visa venture programs. He is also leading Visa's efforts to integrate the Innovation and Strategic Partner programs in Europe. Bill joined Visa, Inc. in 2010, subsequent to his roles as Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Commercial Officer at GSM Association (GSMA) and senior executive positions at LM Ericsson and Telus.

"Mobile Identity and Authentication are becoming critical components to future proof mobile transactions -- whatever they may be. Danal's global partnership with Mobile Network Operators and leading data sources, combined with its proprietary platform, positions it as a leader in the space. It's a pleasure to serve on Danal's Board of Directors," said Bill Gajda.

Peter Martin, Google's Head of Payments Risk Product, has recently joined Danal's Board of Advisors. Peter is a well-respected industry expert in the area of payments and online transaction risk management. At Google, he is responsible for Google Wallet/ Consumer, Play/Android and 50+ Google businesses payments risk management. Previous to his current position, Peter was Risk Product Director at Groupon, Director of Risk Product at PayPal and Risk Management Manager at Wells Fargo, responsible for all new DDA account risk mitigation.

"Danal is a well-respected company and I look forward to collaborating with them -- mobile identity plays a critical role in combatting today's fraudulent activity and Danal has consistently proven their data and technology is superior to other existing solutions," commented Peter Martin.

Jim Greenwell, Danal's President and CEO, said, "As Danal's mobile identity customer base and global mobile operator coverage continue to expand, we are fortunate to have these two leading experts in payments and risk management contributing their insights to our growth plans and strategies."

Danal is trusted by top-tier US and EU MNOs to directly access mobile device, network location and subscriber account data in order to serve Danal enterprise clients, including Fortune 500 financial institutions and mCommerce brands.

Utilizing the MNO's real-time data, Danal also offers consent-driven consumer convenience services such as auto form-filling for account origination and guest check-out on input-constrained mobile screens.

Mobile identity and authentication services based on real-time interaction with the mobile operator's network are impactful and have proven far more effective than traditional fraud management and government compliance offerings.
