Loomis Armors Against Data Theft

The company that is trusted to protect the assets of many of the nation’s major banks, now trusts PhoneFactor to protect theirs.

OVERLAND PARK, KS (September 9, 2008) – PhoneFactor, a leading provider of security products and services, today announced that Loomis, an international leader in the cash handling services industry, has selected PhoneFactor as its two-factor authentication solution in the US.

Loomis’ high profile customers in the financial, commercial and retail sectors rely on Loomis to protect their assets. That responsibility extends to the sensitive data about Loomis’ operations and that of their clients, housed on the Loomis corporate network. After evaluating several options for two-factor authentication, Loomis chose to implement PhoneFactor to protect remote access to its network and the client information it contains.

PhoneFactor adds a second layer of security — an automated phone call — to Loomis’ existing remote access platform. Loomis employees simply login to the company VPN just like they do today, and instantly they get a call. They answer the call and press # to complete their log in. A hacker would need to know the employee’s log in information and have physical possession of their phone to gain access to the Loomis network.

“Protecting our customers’ data is every bit as important as protecting their cash. Security is our number one priority,” stated Wayne Sadin, Chief Information Officer at Loomis. “PhoneFactor allowed us to add a critical extra barrier against unauthorized access with limited impact on our employees.”
