NTT-AT to distribute Trusona ID tech in Japan
Identity authentication company Trusona has formed a distribution partnership with NTT Advanced Technology (NTT-AT), a Japanese telco. This follows the Arizona-based firm’s Asia Pacific launch last August, when it opened offices in Japan, reports Julie Muhn at Finovate (FinTech Futures’ sister company).
Through the partnership, NTT-AT will offer Trusona’s password-less login solution to its enterprise customers across Japan.
NTT-AT clients will have access to Trusona’s Identity Authentication Suite, a solution that replaces passwords with a multi-factor login solution.
The authentication technology is built with anti-replay technology and can be used to access any digital channel – from web, to mobile, to internet of things (IoT).
Founded in 2015, Trusona is used across a variety of sectors, including government, education, and financial services. It also offers its Cloud Identity Suite that allows end users to authenticate themselves by using the Trusona app on their smartphone to photograph a QR code on a website login page, then selecting “accept” on their mobile device.
