"A method is provided which, in an embodiment, comprises the steps of receiving from a remote site a request for access to a financial institution's Internet banking site, said request having satisfied a first authentication requirement associated with a customer of the financial institution and said request having two or more attributes, calculating a score corresponding to a measure of the improbability of the occurrence of at least two of the attributes, and conditioning approval of the request on satisfaction of a second authentication requirement if the score exceeds a configurable threshold. In an alternative embodiment, the method comprises the steps of receiving from a remote site a request for access to a financial institution's Internet banking site, determining that the request is unusual based on the improbability of occurrence of a plurality of attributes of the request, and reporting the request to the financial institution."
"It has become very clear to us that consumer behaviour is changing. Mobile is now increasingly the first, last and sometimes only point of call for consumers seeking to purchase theme park tickets and access special experiences once inside the park. Today as much as 30 to 40 percent of online ticket sales are being made on a mobile device. That trend is only going to continue to grow and today's release is designed to capture that opportunity to the fullest. I am proud of the lead we have taken in the mobile ticketing and payments space and I look forward to proving to our customers just how much richer and more engaging their guest experience can be by putting mobile at the heart of their offering."
