Transform a set of mandatory security standards into a competitive advantage

Three steps for the path to success under PSD2

STEP 1: Meet your immediate PSD2 compliance obligations

Invest in a proven, scalable, interoperable, and well-documented strong customer authentication solution that eases auditing and reporting to regulatory authorities.

  • Use push-based, phone-as-a-token multi-factor authentication to secure access to payment accounts, transactions, or exchange of any other sensitive data
  • Register your customer’s mobile devices only afterpseudonymous digital certificates have been deployed to their mobile devices, so that only your organization is party to their identity
  • Protect the confidentiality and integrity of user’s personal security credentials and ensure that only you and your customer know the details of the authentication request
  • Digitally sign every authentication request and response for nonrepudiation and generate audit trails to help settle multi-stakeholder disputes
  • Prove compliance quickly and decisively with technology that not only conforms to all major digital security regimes but is already used widely by banks and payment providers across Europe

STEP 2: Provide a winning user experience

A truly customer-centric authentication solution to PSD2 empowers your customers to transact anywhere, anytime, enhancing your trust relationship with each new interaction.

  • Aim for a converged authentication solution spanning multiple use cases and providing a consistent experience across all channels, while saving on operational costs
  • Push authentication requests to your customers’ mobile devices automatically and allow them to respond by simply tapping Accept or Reject
  • Boost customer confidence and adoption with a low-friction, predictable means of approving payments and third-party access to accounts in real time
  • Meet your consumer demand for on-the-go convenience using a solution built with mobile enablement top of mind
STEP 3: Capitalize on the opportunity

Act now to become the trusted keeper of consumers’ digital assets and change your strategic position relative to third-party payment service providers.

  • Prioritize flexibility with a platform that covers the full authentication life cycle (roll-out, maintenance, recovery, off-boarding, and more)
  • Avoid stopgap solutions at odds with international trends, out of step with adjacent regulatory frameworks like GDPR, or likely to fall foul of PSD3 in just a few years’ time
  • Steer clear of one-time passwords, which are technically obsolete and deprecated by regulators in a fast-growing list of cases
  • Establish a secure channel to the customer, so you can add innovative new digital services and retain existing customers and attract new ones
  • Position yourself as the trusted keeper of your customers’ digital assets and change your strategic position relative to third-party payment service providers

PSD2 is no bolt from the blue. It’s simply another step in the escalating evolution of payments – and not the last one you’ll experience either.
