Enfuce and Gemalto bring mobile authentication services within reach of many financial institutions in the Nordics
- Innovative ‘authentication as a service’ solution delivers fast and efficient deployment
- Gemalto’s Mobile Software Developer Kit enables latest two-factor authentication techniques on any connected device
Amsterdam, May 18 2017, Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, collaborates with Finnish-based financial services provider Enfuce to offer enterprises in the Nordics a rapid and cost-efficient deployment of convenient and strong customer authentication using mobile devices. Enfuce has launched an innovative, cloud-based ‘authentication as a service’ solution, designed to make it simple for financial institutions, retailers and fintechs to secure their mobile applications. The solution is built on Gemalto’s Mobile Protector Software Development Kit (SDK) and Confirm Authentication Server (CAS). Users can decide to be authenticated for the transactions using a PIN code, fingerprint or facial recognition,
New authentication services deployed in weeks – with no start-up fees
Leveraging the comprehensive capabilities of the Mobile Protector SDK, Enfuce’s customers can deploy highly secured mobile applications in a matter of weeks, helping them to comply with banking regulations such as PSD2. No start-up fees or investment in internal infrastructure is required and end users can quickly enjoy the benefits of secure and seamless payment and transaction authentication.
User-friendly two factor authentication now within reach of more enterprises
Gemalto Mobile Protector SDK provides Enfuce’s customers with APIs, needed to embed security into their mobile applications, without requiring developers to master security principles. Enfuce delivers and hosts a hassle-free, 24/7 service, including white label solutions that can be tailored to individual corporate requirements. As a result, mobile two-factor authentication is now within reach of a wider range of enterprises. Initially targeting the Nordics, where it has already been sold, Enfuce plans to extend the service across Europe.
“The introduction of this ground-breaking ‘authentication as a service’ solution reflects our commitment to enable profound changes in the payment industry,” said Monika Liikamaa, CEO for Enfuce. “By combining our extensive knowledge of the financial sector with Gemalto’s authentication capabilities, we can offer a ‘plug and play’ service that leaves clients free to focus on core activities.”
“Enfuce’s innovative service is aimed at banks, financial institutions and any player who want to provide rich yet secure mobile applications to their customers without investing in heavy infrastructure. ” said Patrick Kleuters, SVP Banking and Payment Europe for Gemalto. “It offers an off-the-shelf option with the new PSD2 directive in mind relating to two-factor authentication.”
