A few years ago the company created an initiative to broaden its focus from risk to authentication, says Peter Tapling, CEO of Authentify, who says the two firms have shared interests in the past.
"About 60 percent of our business is in financial services," Tapling says. "We have known the Early Warning guys for quite a while."
Tapling says that Early Warning concentrates on what is known as "consortium value," or how any data or decisions are of value not only to the entity that requested them but across all participating organizations in a network.
Part of Authentify's focus, Tapling explains, is the concept of sharing an individual's credentials and being able to use them across multiple applications.
"Our vision of what Authentify can do and Early Warning's vision of reducing loss in the financial services industry through a consortium model are completely aligned," he says.

Peter Tapling, the CEO of Authentify, is the member of the Council that focuses on that area.
"A call center is a particularly challenging place to authenticate individuals," said Peter Tapling, CEO at Chicago-based Authentify Inc.
"The challenge faced by the educators is to adopt a mechanism which would ensure the identity of the students who enroll for remote courses," remarks Tapling.
Peter Tapling says many retail breaches start with a network intrusion that is typically traced back to weak credentials.
The consensus, Peter Tapling added, is that there's a possibility the perpetrators of this apparent breach may be the same group of Russian and Ukrainian hackers responsible for the recent data breaches at JPMorgan and other banks.
"One of the characteristics of being a smaller company is, we can come up with really great ideas and we kind of work really hard to get particular individuals to implement it," Tapling told Benzinga. "There's no replacing Apple making something available to 500 million people in a day. So I think it's going to be a combination." Beats Electronics June 1, 2014 Is Beats Developing Apple's Next Groundbreaking Device? "Whether or not Apple has this in mind is pure speculation, but many of the biometrics that will become common in the future need a wearable device," Tapling told Benzinga.
Individuals resort to lying about themselves to protect their identities when accessing systems in today's imperfect cyber world, says Peter Tapling, president of Authentify, an out-of-band authentication service.

Authentify CEO Peter Tapling to Moderate a Panel on Mobile Fraud
CHICAGO, February 25, 2015 - Increasingly, organizations are embracing mobile payments as critical to their growth plans and revenue. This increased emphasis is likely due to the mobile channel growing at a higher rate than other channels and the availability of mobile payment technologies like Apple Pay. However, as mobile represents an expanding share of business for organizations, it is not without risk and will require additional plans and tools for managing that risk.
During the BAI Payments Connect 2015 conference next week, Authentify President and CEO Peter Tapling will moderate a panel discussion to explore mobile fraud and address ways to enhance cybersecurity measures that limit losses. Joining Mr. Tapling are Rick Swenson, assistant vice president, Enterprise Security Group for USAA, and Andrew "Drew" J. Luca, partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers, LLC.
