OneSpan (NASDAQ: OSPN), the global leader in securing remote banking transactions, today announced that Belfius Bank has integrated OneSpan Mobile Security Suite (MSS) into its mobile app to help protect its customers from the growing impact of cybercrime.
OneSpan’s technology provides biometric authentication, risk analysis and other app security best practices behind the scenes to improve the experience of the bank’s 1.5 million mobile users.
Customer satisfaction is key for Belfius, which is why the bank developed an award-winning mobile application that goes beyond traditional banking. With its “super app,” Belfius provides customers with access to the bank’s financial services, as well as to third-party services such as cardless fueling, on-street parking and bus tickets. OneSpan helps protect transactions made through the app while delivering a hassle-free authentication process.
Mobile malware attacks increased in the latter half of 2020, with Kaspersky uncovering 156,710 new mobile banking trojans.1 MSS detects and mitigates these threats and related fraud, and helps ensure the integrity and protection of apps and data with application shielding. MSS also provides a mobile app security framework that allows Belfius to easily deploy new authentication and advanced security modules as needed and with minimal development.
“OneSpan’s technology supports our vision of delivering a secure app,” said Belfius Project Manager, Signing and Authentication, Jonas De Dobbeleer. “We have long used OneSpan’s hardware authentication devices and are incorporating OneSpan’s technology into our app to provide our customers with strong security without impacting the user experience.”
“Fraudsters are increasingly targeting the digital channel given pandemic-related adoption and changing consumer preferences,” said OneSpan CEO, Scott Clements. “Our mobile security suite is key to a bank’s ability to detect digital fraud by continuously monitoring and improving online and mobile app security in a way that is invisible to the consumer. Technologies like app shielding, biometric authentication and encrypted transaction signing enable financial services organizations to identify and fight fraud like man-in-the-middle attacks while maintaining trust and driving adoption.”
