TOKYO, August 26, 2019 – Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI), a leading provider of consulting services and system solutions, announced today that the company’s I-STAR/CORE back office solution has added two-factor authentication in order to offer more enhanced security to wholesale brokerage firms looking to secure their settlement functions.
NRI users rely on I-STAR/CORE for post-trade operations support, including fund and securities settlement. As security requirements increase, there has been increased demand for stricter security measures around settlement functions. As a result, NRI has added dynamic password technology to existing authentication processes. The dynamic password is generated on a mobile application, and I-STAR/CORE users are required to enter the one-time password in addition to the existing password.
