Edify is a subsidiary of S1 Corporation (NASDAQ: SONE), the pioneer of Internet banking and todays leading provider of innovative Internet-based financial services solutions.

Demonstration:
Edify Corp. recently unveiled the Wireless Secure Program, a hardware and software bundle designed to quell the security concerns of financial institutions that want to extend their reach to wireless customers.

Edify has integrated its Electronic Workforce application, which lets companies deploy wireless technology for interactive communications, with the Secure Enterprise Proxy from Openwave Systems Inc. The Secure Enterprise Proxy is a server that creates a Wireless Transport Layer Security (WTLS) tunnel and encrypts data before it travels from a handheld device to its destination. Together, the products enable data to travel completely over a wireless network and remain encrypted throughout the entire transaction.

Typically, wireless carriers move data onto the Internet, requiring them to decrypt the data and then re-encrypt it via the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) security protocol. During the conversion, the data is "in the clear" and available to cyberthieves, says Warren Hill, strategic business director at Edify. "It hasnt happened yet, but anyone who knows about Unix memory management can download that consumers personal account information, user ID, and password" if they time it right, he says.

National Interbank, an Indianapolis provider of private-label online banking and services, is concerned about hackers accessing customer information and is testing the Wireless Secure Program, CEO Randy Waterfield says. Credit Suisse and Fidelity are also testing the product. "We see this as adding a hybrid level of security for our customers using wireless devices," says Mike Mouakadakis, chief technology officer at National Interbank. "If their data is traveling over the Net, we have 128-bit SSL encryption. If its travelling over wireless, we now have 128-bit WTSL, and Edify has also given us secure voice capabilities.
