8th D-A-CH Congress for Financial Information: APIIDA showcases Smartphone-based solution for 2-Factor Authentication

Gross-Bieberau, April 25, 2018.
APIIDA AG, solution partner for the digital transformation in the enterprise, will present its solution APIIDA Mobile Authentication during DKF 2018 (D-A-CH Congress for Financial Information) on May 3, showcasing Thomson Reuter’s financial information systems (booth B13). DKF 2018 will take place at the Sofitel Bayerpost Munich and will be held under the motto “How to compete in the financial information and technology industry in 2020 and beyond”.

APIIDA Mobile Authentication is a 2-factor authentication (2FA) solution that enables the local storage of a trusted identity on the user’s smartphone. It is thus a comfortable, secure and cost-effective alternative to smartcards & co. “We are very pleased to be able to present our solution APIIDA Mobile Authentication to representatives of the financial industry, together with partner Thomson Reuters”, says Armin Stephan, VP Sales & Marketing.

APIIDA board member and CTO Sebastian Rohr also talks about the importance of IT security for the financial industry in general and the importance of authentication processes in particular. “The financial industry is particularly affected by the ongoing plethora of regulations, from compliance with the laws of the KWG, the Telemedia Act, BDSG, DSGVO and GDPR, the MaRISK amendment BAIT, to the requirements of the manuals of the BSI. In particular, the protection of sensitive data is given top priority here. For this purpose, authentication methods that test and prove the identity of a communication partner are an important building block already today, and especially in the future, “Sebastian Rohr gives a brief outlook on his presentation.

DKF 2018 brings together business executives, solution providers and opinion leaders from the financial services industry. Featuring a conference as well as an exhibition, the event allows both vendor-exhibitors and visitors to combine an informative and thought-provoking conference program with a review of products, technologies and solutions that are proven to answer the current needs of the financial industry.
