Safetronic Mobile

Safetronic mSign mobile security MFA token for authentication of the user identity and transaction independent of the delivery channel that initiated the request; including SDK option to embed within existing mobile apps.

Hardware Tokens

Open Standard OATH tokens that are compliant to: OCRA, TOTP, HOTP. Legacy/proprietary hardware token support for Vasco/OneSpan DigiPass and ActivIdentity.

EMV CAP

EMV CAP authentication including support for verification of signatures generated by CVN cards.

PKI

PKI signature generation and validation including certificate status checking against CRLs and OCSPs.

User Biometrics

Biometric user authentication, Push authentication, QR code transaction signing, InterApp mobile app-to-app authentication.

SMS OTP

SMS/Email OTP provides an entry level solution that enables rapid onboarding of new and occasional users.

Safetronic Mobile MFA

Safetronic can be coupled with mSign Mobile MFA for contemporary user and transaction authentication that is independent and decoupled from the service channel. These products enable high assurance in the authentication of users identities and transactions.

Safetronic eKYC

Safetronic’s eKYC capability simplifies online verification of user identity for rapid Know Your Customer onboarding.

B2B Payments Authentication

Unique Multi-Channel Signing and Validation Capability: Safetronic has been at the core of the UK payments network since the inception of BACSTEL-IP in 2002.

The Banker’s Automatic Clearing System (BACS) selected the Safetronic platform to authenticate payment transactions, ensure traceability of all transactions and provide robust audit trails. Safetronic provides a unique multi-channel signing and validation capability to support simultaneous connection to the 20+ member banks that form BACS. This removes the complexity of securely supporting and managing multiple PKIs from the applications themselves and separates the application logic from security functions, ensuring compatibility with all relevant PKI standards and the required levels of compliance and governance for each scheme.

Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) for Open Banking & PSD2

Comply with the regulator requirements such as UK Open Banking & European Payment Services Directive (PSD2) for Strong Customer Authentication (SCA), whilst retaining a flexible customer focused approach to authentication.

The directive requires that customer and transaction authentication across digital channels be implemented by a compliant multi-factor mechanism that incorporates knowledge, possession and inherence which ensures that both the originator of the transaction and the transaction content can each be strongly authenticated and bound to each other.

Safetronic has been designed to support a diverse range of SCA compliant authentication mechanisms simultaneously. The scalable Safetronic architecture future proofs your authentication investment and enables you to expand your existing security platform to accommodate new or additional authentication mechanisms as they emerge.

Safetronic’s SCA compliant mSign Connected mobile token enables organisations to utilise a single authentication method across all digital channels and abstracts the authentication layer from the business logic.
