SafeNet recently released a new authentication device designed to improve the security of online banking solutions.

"Unlike other tokens that utilize cards, the eToken 3500 comes with an optical sensor which reads the details of the transaction from the computer’s screen, generating an electronic signature which is input by the user into the browser to confirm the validity of the banking operation," writes Softpedia's Eduard Kovacs.

"This way, it’s much more difficult for a cybercriminal to tamper with transactions, but it also protects the user in case he forgets the password or in the unfortunate situation in which a hacker steals his identity," Kovacs writes.
