Vernier – ERI and Kobil are delighted to announce their product and service partnership: ERI will offer Kobil’s m-Identity Protection security technology to its clients to guarantee the security of its mobile and e-banking solutions.
M-identity Protection is already integrated into the OLYMPIC Banking System: ERI’s clients can use Kobil’s renowned and certified security technologies with their mobile and e-banking solutions.
m-Identity Protection safeguards the identity of the OLYMPIC Banking System mobile application users and secures the «sms-free» authorisations for mobile and e-banking transactions. ERI markets and provides support for the entire solution.
According to Thomas Balgheim, Corporate Officer at Kobil Systems: «This collaboration with ERI is a win-win all round. We provide the high-level security ERI requires as a mobile banking service provider, without making the user experience more complex. In return, there is an opportunity for us to expand our presence across the banking sector quicker than through direct distribution channels.»
Setting out the advantages of this partnership, Jean-Philippe Bersier, Director of Business Development, ERI, stated: «Kobil solutions are well-known for offering the highest level of security. This is why we decided to integrate m-Identity Protection into the OLYMPIC Banking System e-banking and mobile modules. The result is that we can meet our clients’ needs for increased security and empower them to develop and consolidate their mobile and e-banking strategies.»
