Snippet: Entersekt und Netcetera haben bei Pluscard, dem Herausgeber der Sparkassen-Kreditkarten, erstmals in Europa den FIDO-Authentifizierungsstandard für Payments implementiert.

Snippet: In December last year, Entersekt gained FIDO Alliance certification for the FIDO2 server protocol. It had been a long and complex process, so you may wonder why we set out to expand our offering and gain that stamp of approval in the first place. We already had a broad, market-leading authentication portfolio, including a state-of-the-art push authentication solution. Why does Entersekt care so much about FIDO2?

Snippet: These days, we’re more likely to leave home without our wallets than our mobile phones.

Snippet: Two decades after its inception, the humble quick response (QR) code is growing in popularity amongst merchants and shoppers, shaking up the payments scene and forcing banks and regulators to sit up and take notice. No longer just used for payments, these two-dimensional codes are popping up everywhere, quickly becoming the darling of mobile payments’ methods.

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.

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.
