VeriSign Selects Authentify to Automate Delivery of Digital Certificates to Businesses
CHICAGO - VeriSign, Inc. is using the Authentify voice-based authentication service as part of its validation services. This service is used by VeriSign to verify that a digital certificate is requested by the organization applying for it, and reduces the time it takes a US-based customer to receive one. Typically, an organization that has a valid business registration and domain registration can get a fully authenticated server certificate in less than one day using this service.
The Authentify service integrates with VeriSign's existing validation process and enables U.S. server certificate orders to pass through the automated telephone verification system. Authentify, which has developed a patented system that binds a Web session with an outbound telephone call, completes the majority of its telephone verification transactions for VeriSign without human intervention.
