Digital banking company Backbase and mobile security solutions provider Entersekt have today teamed up in an effort to deliver a frictionless customer experience with cutting-edge authentication technology.
Through the partnership, Backbase will offer Entersekt’s payment-authentication solutions in the Backbase Open Banking Marketplace. This enables Backbase clients to select an authentication solution that works with their Backbase-powered offering. In a press release, the companies note that the integration has already proven successful, and works with multiple implementations, including Swisscard in Switzerland.
Entersekt’s SVP of Partners and Alliances Dewald Nolte said, “With this partnership, we believe we can help banks fast-track their future by enabling digital services that would be considered too risky or unfeasible using a channel other than the branch.”
Backbase CEO and co-founder Jouk Pleiter said that partnerships such as these help Backbase “speed up innovation and deliver to [its] customers the best that’s available in the fast-moving fintech field.” The Amsterdam-based company has been offering digital banking solutions since it was founded in 2003. Backbase last presented at FinovateEurope 2016 where it showed off the wealth management edition of its digital banking platform. The company will debut its newest offering next week at FinovateFall 2016 in New York. Tickets are still available; register soon to secure your spot.
Entersekt, a FinDEVr alum, was founded in 2008. The company’s CTO Christiaan Brand gave a presentation titled Securing Mobile Applications Through Transport Layer Diversity at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2014. Earlier this year in June, the company partnered with Finovate alum CREALOGIX to secure the company’s online and mobile offerings. Tickets for the upcoming FinDEVr Silicon Valley conference are now available. Check out the agenda and the recently revealed list of presenters.
