Banks View the Digital Transformation as an Opportunity

Banks and financial services are currently working hard to implement the digital transformation in their industry. With services such as internet banking, mobile banking and share trading using web and mobile applications, financial institutions are enabling their customers to use banking services anywhere at any time.

The Most Significant Challenges for Banks and Financial Institutions

  • Strict regulation
    The financial sector is certainly one of the most strictly regulated sectors. Banks use the latest technology to offer specialised financial services. They deploy user-friendly apps that can be used anywhere at any time. The challenge: only those companies that protect customers’ personal data in line with privacy requirements can profit from the competitive edge that digitalisation provides.
  • Banking in a changing world
    The days when the customer experience was largely created directly at the bank counter are gradually disappearing. Open banking and APIs are playing an increasingly important role – driven by increased customer demands, faster technologies and continued network growth. These days, customers expect the convenience of online transactions and online banking. These processes require sophisticated privacy concepts. In this context, banks must strike a successful balance between guaranteeing the security of customer data while at the same time prioritising user-friendliness and the customer. In our experience, the widely used 2FA or MFA solutions (in conjunction with PIN-TAN procedures) often fail to meet these requirements. Cybercriminals use phishing, pharming or trojans to gain access to sensitive customer data.

Nevis – Your Partner for Security and Compliance

Nevis offers you the optimum solution: Your customers get passwordless and secure access to their accounts so they can manage all their financial affairs in seconds. User-friendly and completely secure.

Guaranteed compliance with the Payment Services Directive 2 (PSD2)

orange-plus orange-minus

The revised Payment Services Directive (PSD2) requires the use of two-factor authentication (2FA) for online banking and card payments. This increases the requirements for the customer journey in online business. After all, customers expect the same convenience in their dealings with financial institutions that they enjoy on their other online activities. However, banks that neglect the factor of security risk permanently damaging their reputation and losing customers to other financial service providers.

Nevis security solutions are FIDO-certified. The FIDO standards provide much greater authentication security for users logging into an online user account – by requiring the login to be performed using public and private keys that are beyond the reach of cybercriminals. Instead of insecure passwords, biometric factors such as a fingerprint can be used for secure authentication.

Under the terms of the GDPR, banks and the financial sector are required to demonstrably protect personal customer data across all systems used to collect, store and further process this data. The burden of proof of this rests with the respective financial company. Despite this regulation, many financial institutions do not meet the requirements pertaining to IT security and controlled personal checks (identity and age checks).


Nevis has been protecting digital portals for 20 years.

What Your Customers Expect From Digital Services

Simple logins and maximum security by SCA

orange-plus orange-minus

Customers have very clear expectations in the financial sector: Personal data, account data and transactions must be protected by the strictest security standards. Login processes and operating functions should be user-friendly and smart.

Passwordless login

orange-plus orange-minus

People are no longer willing to remember and type in complicated passwords. Login processes and operating functions should offer maximum user convenience. Customers demand passwordless website logins – both on desktop as well as mobile browsers.

Access to services – always and everywhere

These days, customers have become used to using their mobile devices to complete their day-to-day banking transactions. When doing so, they expect simple and straightforward access to their financial data. Mobile apps must also guarantee a seamless online banking experience.

Excelling customer experience

orange-plus orange-minus

Digital services must guarantee an optimum customer experience anywhere at any time. This builds trust and customer loyalty. User-friendliness must be the focus throughout and must cover the entire range of different customer needs.

Intuitive points of contact

orange-plus orange-minus

Conventional authentication methods are often inconvenient and expensive. In most cases, they no longer offer effective protection for sensitive data. It is imperative to combine maximum security with optimum user convenience. Even if the intuitive customer journey is interrupted at just one point, this will lead to a negative customer experience.
