Southbridge Savings Bank Chooses Comodo Authentication

Comodo announces that Southbridge Savings Bank, located in Southbridge, Massachusetts, has chosen Comodo to deliver online authentication to its members. Comodo Authentication includes Two Factor Authentication using a client certificate for authenticating the user to the institution, Comodo's Content Verification Certificate to protect key content from being spoofed by a phisher, an EV SSL certificate for online visual authentication of a site's identity, and Email certificates to provide digital signatures and encryption to internal Email correspondence.

SSB previously had a different authentication solution in place; however, after conducting its due diligence and considering the usability, security, and authentication concerns of its customers, SSB decided to deploy Comodo Authentication as a best practice solution. Comodo Authentication will deliver a more user-friendly and easily-deployed solution, utilizing the PKI-based TF/client certificate technology that is recognized as a best practice method in online security.

As an added enhancement, SSB will protect its key site content with Comodo's Content Verification Certificates. CVCs are an innovative tool created and provided only by Comodo that act as a powerful weapon against phishers.

Comodo Authentication is a solution that is easily configured and quickly deployed. Because Comodo Authentication is based on established PKI infrastructure and digital certificate lifecycle management processes, operating costs are greatly reduced. Further, PKI is recognized as one of the most secure and mature security platforms, and satisfies the FFIEC requirements for online authentication.
