11 November 2009: Thanks to continued
rapid growth in 2009, Todos has passed a significant milestone. In
September 2009, it delivered its 20 millionth eBanking security
In a world where identity theft, spyware, phishing and man-in-themiddle
attacks threaten consumer confidence in online banking, Todos
is busy strengthening the bonds of trust between banks and their
customers. Millions of people around the world feel safer online thanks
The company’s success allows it to invest in innovative products, such
as the Todos C400 and C200 advanced smart card readers. Todos has
already shipped 6m of these sophisticated devices while other vendors
struggle to bring similar products to market.
Todos’s advanced smartcard readers fully eliminate the danger of man-in-the-middle and man-in-thebrowser
attacks, sidestepping the dangers highlighted by Ross Anderson earlier this year in his Cambridge
University report “Optimised to Fail”.
The smartcard readers provide enhanced transaction authentication without having to connect to the
user’s PC. They are user-friendly and bank-friendly at the same time.
Two security features enhance trust, confidence and usability. Todos’s unique Dynamic Signatures allows
banks to adjust the level of security in proportion to the level of risk involved in each transaction. It is the
only technology that enables Sign-What-You-See in both connected and unconnected mode. Secure
Domain Separation prevents cross-channel attacks by keeping eCommerce, eBanking authentication,
logon and transactions separate.
“This is a real milestone for Todos,” says Ove Wedsjö, the company’s CEO. “When it comes to eBanking
and eCommerce security, it shows that Todos is setting the pace in business, technology and trust.”
