 Entersekt, an innovative pioneer in transaction authentication, has received IBM PartnerWorld’s Ready for IBM Security Intelligence designation for its flagship authentication product, Transakt. The certification provides assurance to IBM customers that Transakt has been validated for integration with IBM Security Access Manager. With this news, IBM Security Access Manager customers around the world will be able to further protect their users through Entersekt’s mobile-based authentication and transaction signing technology.

“By combining the industry’s leading technology for push-based, multi-factor authentication with IBM’s market leading access management platform, current and future IBM customers will benefit from an improved level of security and stronger authentication protocols protecting valuable properties,” said Christiaan Brand, chief technology officer at Entersekt.

Entersekt provides strong, out-of-band authentication and transaction signing capabilities for leading banks in Africa and Europe. Users of its product, Transakt, are directed by simple prompts to accept or reject online and mobile banking transactions from outside the browser. Transakt simultaneously verifies the identities of both the bank and the mobile device in use, eliminating the need for expensive hardware tokens or cumbersome one-time passwords. It is certified in full compliance with Visa, MasterCard, and American Express card-not-present security standards and is compatible with hundreds of models of mobile phones on all major platforms.

The Ready for IBM Security Intelligence alliance is designed to promote technology collaboration and integration to increase security coverage, collapse silos of information, and increase situational awareness and insights. With the PartnerWorld program and Ready for IBM Security Intelligence validation, IBM supports collaboration with its business partners to enable the integration of product capabilities and improved security capabilities for mutual customers.
