Callsign and the Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) announce a partnership to transform digital authentication


New York / London, February 21, 2017 – Callsign is a security start-up that provides military-grade security through its unique Intelligence Driven Authentication (IDA) solution, enabling enterprises to define adaptive authentication policies that utilize deep learning insights.

Every day the threats from cybercrime are evolving, meaning the traditional one-size-fits-all approach to cyber security risk management is ineffective. Callsign's IDA solution derives intelligence from multiple sources in real-time, effectively combating phishing, Man In The Middle (MITM) and advanced malware threats. By combining a number of key capabilities and presenting an intuitive dashboard, Callsign helps risk officers to dynamically adapt their security posture.

The Global Cyber Alliance (GCA) is an international, cross-sector effort designed to confront, address, and prevent malicious cyber activity. While most efforts at addressing cyber risk have been industry, sector, or geographically specific, the Global Cyber Alliance is unique as it spans across borders and sectors. The GCA is committed to making a real impact in helping enterprises combat hacking and cybercrime.

Together, Callsign and the GCA are proud to announce their partnership focused on delivering a new global standard for improved security through Intelligence Driven Authentication. The two groups have joined resources in order to offer enterprises smarter technology and better methodologies around managing authentication. Zia Hayat, the CEO of Callsign stated, “We are very excited to be working with an organization of GCA’s stature. The work that they are doing is critically important and Callsign will be able to make a real impact with our unique technology and approach”.

Philip Reitinger, President and CEO of the GCA said “GCA is focused on making a difference in the security of enterprises around the world. We look forward to working with Callsign as one of our partners to make significant strides in improving the quality of authentication.”

About Callsign - Callsign's unique Intelligence Driven Authentication (IDA) solution enables users to access whatever they need, from wherever and however they need it, all in a frictionless manner. This frees users from traditionally static; one size fits all approach to authentication. Callsign clients only need to explicitly authenticate if the intelligence picture derived by the advanced deep learning algorithms indicates suspicious activity. Unlike anything else, this puts businesses and users back in control. For additional information please go to Callsign.
