The idea is to offer enterprises a rapid and cost-efficient deployment of convenient and strong customer authentication using mobile devices.
Enfuce has launched its cloud-based ‘authentication as a service’ solution, designed to make it simple for financial institutions, retailers and fintechs to secure their mobile applications.
It 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,
Using its Mobile Protector SDK, Enfuce’s customers can deploy secured mobile applications in a matter of weeks, helping them to comply with PSD2 banking regulations.
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.
Initially targeting the Nordics, where it has already been sold, Enfuce plans to extend the service across Europe.
Enfuce CEO for Monika Liikamaa said: “The introduction of this ground-breaking ‘authentication as a service’ solution reflects our commitment to enable profound changes in the payment industry. 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.”
