Why FIDO Alliance certification matters to us at Entersekt


In December last year, Entersekt gained FIDO Alliance certification for the FIDO2 server protocol.

Snippet: The global pandemic has accelerated the adoption of mobile and online banking faster than anyone could have imagined. But fraud has also kept pace as bad actors play the numbers game, launching huge volleys of cybercrime attempts.

Snippet: A bank is only as successful as the depth of its customers’ trust. With new players venturing into the realm of financial services and competing for customers, banks have reached a critical juncture in their digital transformation journey. Rik Coeckelbergs of The Banking Scene looks at how traditional financial services providers could safeguard the longstanding bonds of trust they share with their customers and increase their relevance in the era of open banking.
