Partnership Extends E-Business Security for European Financial Services Community
Building on its reputation in the financial services sector, Entegrity Solutions, a leader in application security software and services, has signed a definitive partnership agreement with EuroSignCard SA. In the agreement, Entegrity will provide its access management solutions for EuroSignCard to resell to financial institutions in Luxembourg, the world’s fifth largest banking centre. EuroSignCard is a European trust centre for digital signatures, delivering services to secure electronic financial transactions and promote consumer confidence in e-business.
“It has become abundantly apparent to organisations involved in the transfer of large funds and interaction between competing institutions, that security infrastructure, while absolutely essential, is just the first step in exploiting the potential of e-business and inspiring confidence,” explains David Sweigert, managing director of EuroSignCard SA. “Security infrastructure focuses on ‘keeping the bad guys out’, but Entegrity Solutions’ AssureAccess provides the technological and administrative capabilities to open back-end applications to partners over the internet, while managing access rights, user authentication, audit logs and providing central administration. Becoming a member of Entegrity’s Business Partner Program means we can offer the financial services community a complete security solution that promotes e-business in a trusted environment.”
Sweigert continued: “Our customers are often dealing with millions of euros in a single transfer. Confidence in the transaction validity, the right of those involved to execute that business and the ability to audit the path that a transaction has taken is paramount to the ongoing business. Entegrity’s product range extends our ability to provide secure transactions to our customers. In addition, participation in Entegrity’s Business Partner Program aligns us even closer with Identrus, the consortium of global financial institutions, to promote international confidence in e-business in financial services.”
“Access management and application security enable organisations to deal with new trading partners that have only ever met electronically with the same confidence and as those they have been trading with for years. EuroSignCard understands the complete picture of security requirements from infrastructure to application security. We are delighted to work with such an organisation in our Business Partner Program and combine our product offerings across Luxembourg with its expertise and local market knowledge,” comments Paula Palma, vice president and managing director of European Operations at Entegrity Solutions. “This partnership enables Entegrity to capitalise on its already strong foothold into the financial sector and it provides a natural complement to EuroSignCard’s core competencies.”
