About Entersekt.

Pioneers in next-generation authentication and mobile app security

Who we are


Entersekt is a global fintech company. We pioneered phone-as-a-token, out-of-band push authentication – over a decade later, the de facto market standard – collecting the first of 60-plus patents that recognize innovation in digital security, payments, and user experience.

Our security technology is widely deployed and proven; the assurance it provides our customers continues to unlock new capabilities and revenue opportunities.

A growing suite of solutions aimed at fast-tracking digital transformation in financial services, payments, insurance, and healthcare means we enrich more people’s lives every day than ever before.
