S. American Bank Deploys YubiKeys

January 21, 2014 2 minute read

Financial transactions and banking are top targets for online criminals and one simple stolen password can wreak havoc on one’s online identity. Yubico and SwissBytes are proud to announce that Bolivia-based Banco Ganadero has successfully implemented and deployed SwissBytes Virtual Box (SB-VBOX) with integrated YubiKey second-factor authentication to secure online banking services for its customers.

Banco Ganadero needed an easy-to-use and highly effective solution to secure their home banking portal ‘GanaNet’.  Banco Ganadero looked to SwissBytes and Yubico to address this need, while keeping the security of its customer’s accounts and data at utmost importance.  The companies worked together to develop a unique solution for GanaNet — SB-VBOX — which consists of two components, the authentication service and a web application called the ‘YubiKey Control Center’.

Since implementation, GanaNet users have a secure and fast way to access their accounts with the YubiKey from any computer. In the near future the customers will have the ability to log on to their online accounts from mobile devices across popular operating systems such as iOS, Android and Blackberry.

Banking and financial institutions can now add high security to their online services in a fast and affordable way. For more information, please visit www.yubico.com or www.swissbytes.ch.
