Ubisecure announces its latest platform update, IDS 2018.1, which includes the new Authentication Adaptor and the first support for Swedish BankID along with a number of other features & core component updates
Helsinki, Finland & London, UK – 4th October 2018 – Ubisecure (www.ubisecure.com), a leading b2b Identity Services software provider and cloud services enabler, today announced the next major release of the Identity Platform, bringing further support for “bring your own identity” workflows for identity authentication via the new Authentication Adapter. With this new release, Ubisecure extends its identity innovation, transforming how organisations can use existing verified and strong digital identities – whether in the cloud or on-premises – to fundamentally improve the trust, privacy, security and of course the customer experience for their applications.
Identity verification is commonplace through identity providers such as government registries and the Know Your Customer (KYC) process implemented by regulated businesses such as banks and telecoms providers. Customers using the Identity Platform can benefit from the verified assertions issued by such trusted organisations to register or validate customers to application and service providers that need to know the identity of the user to high levels of confidence. Many services can benefit from authentication using a known level of underlying strong identity verification such as government IDs or BankIDs, with Ubisecure now leading support for Swedish BankIDs.
The Ubisecure Identity Platform conveniently, securely and privately connects existing strong (verified) identities from government, banks, telco providers and more to online applications and services. With the addition of the Authentication Adapter, Identity Platform customers benefit from the modularisation of the authentication engines, allowing new external methods of authentication to be added and used seamlessly.
With this release of the Identity Platform, Ubisecure doubles-down on delivering the benefits of strong identity support across the entire identity ecosystem:
- The benefit to the customer is a simplified, secure and private means to register and log into online applications and services
- The benefit to the identity provider (IdP) is to federate strong identities and gain new ROI on the KYC investment
- The benefit to the service provider is the knowledge that the identity of the customer has been verified to high levels of confidence, reducing fraud without the need to invest in their own KYC infrastructure
