Why strong security and authentication create more transactions

The new hot ticket in town is identity—and the battle for the customer, and their data, has begun. With the GAFAM tech giants (Google, Apple, Facebook, Amazon and Microsoft) entering the payments space, banks feel the very real threat of disintermediation. Those who fail to innovate will very quickly lose market share to fintech disruptors and challenger banks. In this changing landscape, Sherif Samy, SVP North America at Entersekt, asks whether there is still room for traditional financial institutions.

Why authentication needs a standard

When interacting with customers, most organizations know how important it is to be sure that the person they’re interacting with is actually their customer – especially when it comes to financial transactions. This is a good thing, as is the fact that most organizations have measures set up to properly authenticate customers. But authentication measures often vary even within the same organization, Entersekt’s Chief Commercial Officer Dewald Nolte tells Karen Webster, which can mean that customers become so used to varying authentication experiences that they are left unable to question when one is going wrong.

By leveraging trust, which is at the heart of the relationship that they have with their customers, banks are in a prime position to act as an identity federator: a single, secure authentication point for all digital services. But, as Sherif Samy, Entersekt’s SVP North America points out, keeping this trust relationship intact in an era where cybercrime and identity theft has become a fact of life, is no mean feat.

Can you future proof your mobile payments?

The shift to digital and mobile forms of payments and commerce is undeniable. But, as Entersekt CEO Schalk Nolte explained in an interview with PYMNTS.com, that does not mean a proactive mindset reigns when it comes to mobile security and innovation. Reactive ways of doing things can degrade the user experience — and that can drive away consumers.
