mIDentity increases convenience while providing maximum security

“Today, digital banking became a main stream for banks. Banks were only focusing on user experiences and functions previously but now they pay much more attention on application security. Stronger security means more convenience for users. But convenience needs a solid security infrastructure. If security infrastructure is strong, a simple PIN or finger touch will be enough for secure banking transactions even on mobile devices. Our mIDentity technology, which used on Yapı Kredi Corporate Mobil Branch application, is a security platform that increases convenience while providing maximum security. Users can login Yapı Kredi Corporate Internet Branch even without passwords thanks to solid security infrastructure of mIDentity technology,” said Ümit Yaşar, KOBIL Turkey Country Director.
