BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Mobile World Congress -- Nok Nok Labs (Nok Nok), the trusted leader in next-generation authentication, today announced that the Nok Nok™ S3 Authentication Suite won a Global Mobile (GLOMO) Award for Best Mobile Authentication & Security Solution at MWC 2019.
"This is an exceptional day for our company and validates the hard work that our engineering and product teams have put in over many years," said Phil Dunkelberger, CEO of Nok Nok Labs. "We thank the GSMA and the judges for this distinguished recognition. This honor only makes us more eager to continue to produce the leading standards-based authentication solutions offered in the market today."
The Nok Nok S3 Suite was recognized for its ability to provide MNOs with strong, multi-factor authentication (MFA) that uses the mobile device and implements industry standards, including those from the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance, to eliminate phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks. In addition, because no shared secrets are stored on the server, the solution also eliminates scalable attacks and enhances user privacy, meeting rapidly evolving privacy regulatory requirements.
"Our congratulations to all of the winners and nominees of the GSMA's GLOMO Awards 2019," said John Hoffman, CEO, GSMA Ltd. "The GLOMOs are a testament to the incredible innovation and ingenuity shaping our industry and it is truly an outstanding achievement to have been selected by our esteemed judging panels. We thank all of our entrants, judges, sponsors and partners for supporting the 2019 GLOMOs."
This recognition comes on the heels of a wave of momentum from Nok Nok Labs, including commercial deployments at SoftBank to deliver strong authentication to more than ten million mobile subscribers, as well as with MUFG Bank, and a recently announced partnership with MTRIX GmbH.
