 myPINpad, the world’s first consumer authentication company set to deliver multi-channel and multi-factor authentication via the Cardholder PIN, is pleased to announce the appointment of Phillip Dunkelberger to its Board, effective immediately.

Phillip is an IT industry luminary with more than 30 years’ experience. He is best known for his role as co-founder and CEO of PGP Corporation, the leader in the Enterprise Data Protection market, until it was acquired by Symantec in 2010. In 2013 Phil became CEO of Nok Nok Labs, a founding member of The FIDO ("Fast Identity Online") Alliance, an industry consortium supported by Google, Intel, MasterCard, Microsoft, PayPal, Samsung and Visa. This coalition was launched to change the nature of online authentication by developing technical specifications that define an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that reduce the reliance on passwords to authenticate users.

He has previously been Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Doll Capital Management (DCM), President and CEO of Embark, and COO of Vantive Corporation. He has also held senior management positions with Apple Computer, Symantec and Xerox Corporation.

As a leader in the enterprise data protection and identity management markets with significant experience in SaaS infrastructure, enterprise software and product management, Phillip will be assisting myPINpad with strategic positioning in Authentication and Identity Management markets and distribution planning, as well as bringing his insight, as an entrepreneur in his own right, regarding the company’s US market entry.

myPINpad Executive Chairman and CEO, Philip King said: “We are delighted to welcome Phil to the board of myPINpad – his relationships, knowledge and expertise in security, identity management and authentication will assist us in driving our vision forward. We are working on continuing to strengthen our board of directors from a technology development, sales, payments and financial services perspective.

Later this year myPINpad expects to announce major deals in a move towards becoming the most trusted authentication service for the secure entry of consumer credentials in payments across all channels. Exciting times are coming for us.”

Phillip Dunkelberg, new Non-Executive Director of myPINpad added: “myPINpad has a very innovative product. The technology has the genuine capability to deliver multi-channel authentication in a FIDO compliant manner, well beyond the secure entry of a card holder PIN for global payments. I am enthusiastic about joining the board and look forward to playing my part in enabling the business to capitalise on existing and new opportunities.”
