Equifax turns to Entersekt for online and mobile services protection
Shortly after announcing a partnership with ForgeRock, Entersekt is back with the news that Equifax will deploy its Transakt solution as an additional layer to protect Equifax’s online and mobile services, reports David Penn at Finovate.
Entersekt says its Transakt solution supports an intuitive, one-touch authentication experience for users. It sends the user a real-time authentication request via their mobile device whenever a digital identity or account is required. The user simply approves or blocks access by tapping “Accept” or “Reject” to enable or prevent access.
According to the vendor, Transakt uniquely identifies each registered device, makes sure of its continued integrity as a factor of authentication, and creates a channel between the device and the digital service provider through which identities are confirmed and sensitive digital transactions conducted.
Entersekt is also already working with FirstBank ($15 billion in assets) in the US, as well as with digital banking software providers Backbase and Crealogix.
Founded in 2008, Entersekt is based in South Africa. Schalk Nolte is CEO.
