As data breaches, identity theft and SIM card fraud continue to rise in scale and quantity around the world, so does the importance of securing the mobile onboarding and authentication process.

“Mobile technologies are increasingly in need of a secure authentication alternative to the password, and we are excited to share our mobile authentication offerings with the attendees at Mobile World Congress,” said Rob Mungovan, chief commercial officer. “Our Knomi product provides mobile network operators and telecommunications providers with a highly secure authentication solution that does not sacrifice user convenience. We are looking forward to sharing the benefits of this product in person at this event.”
