Jeffco CU guards against phishing scams
LAKEWOOD, Colo. (10/10/08)--Jeffco CU, Lakewood, Colo., is guarding against phishing attacks with PhoneFactor, a security product offered by Positive Networks. “It is our responsibility to continually monitor and implement additional safeguards to protect our members’ information,” said Jeffco President/CEO Tom Theune. PhoneFactor is a phone-based authentication technology. When a user logs in with a username and password, the phone rings instantly. The user then enters a personal identification number. If the login is not validated, Jeffco is alerted. PhoneFactor works with any phone, including mobile phones. The technology integrates with any virtual private network or website and no devices or software installation are required. A hacker would need to know a user’s log-in and have physical possession of the user’s phone to gain access, according to Positive Networks. Positive Networks is a provider of hosted virtual private networks, remote access and endpoint security. Jeffco CU has $160 million in assets.
