Create consistency through global standards

Adhering to global security standards and regulations, Nevis forms the beating heart of security infrastructure within a finance portal. As such, it provides the building blocks for all aspects of a modern e-banking solution. Rely on automatic compliance with standards such as PSD2, FIDO, eIDAS and GDPR.

Improve protection against account takeover

Secure your customers’ accounts and access apps with fraud detection and account takeover protection. Sensitive transactions such as bank payments are protected with the help of behavioural biometrics against attacks such as session hijacking.

Optimise the customer experience

Increase the trust and loyalty of your customers by digitalising your customer onboarding and online banking services – and do away with cumbersome processes for recovering passwords.

The Digital Offering of the Banks Is an Essential Element

Banks and financial service providers are currently doing everything possible to implement the digital transformation in their respective sectors. By providing services such as online banking, mobile banking and stock trading using web-based and mobile applications, financial institutions are allowing their customers to access banking services at any time and from anywhere.

The most significant challenges for banks and financial institutions

  • An extensive digital offering is expected
    The days when the customer experience could be largely created directly at the bank counter are finally behind us. Customer orientation is more than just a buzzword in the finance industry. At the same time, the finance industry is undoubtedly one of the most heavily regulated sectors. Banks use the latest technology to offer professional financial services. With a user-friendly app, the services can be used at any time and from anywhere. The challenge in this case: Only those companies that reliably protect customers’ personal data in line with privacy requirements can profit from the competitive edge that digitalisation provides.

  • Guaranteed conformity and user convenience required
    Open banking and APIs are playing an increasingly important role – driven by increased customer demand, faster technology and a wider choice of connections. Today’s customers expect the convenience of online transactions and online banking. These programs require complex privacy concepts. Customer data security combined with a focus on usability and customer account behaviour must be successful. Experience has shown that conventional 2FA or MFA solutions (combined with PIN-TAN processes) often do not meet the above-mentioned requirements. Cybercriminals use phishing or trojan horses such as Emotet to gain access to sensitive customer data. 

Nevis – Your Partner for Security and Compliance

Streamline digital access. The Nevis Security Suite is the beating heart of the security infrastructure of a finance portal. The Nevis architecture offers building blocks for all aspects of a modern e-banking solution.

Guaranteed compliance with PSD2, GDPR and DORA

blue-plus blue-minus

The large number of new regulations covering all aspects of security and privacy (such as GDPR and PSD2) pile pressure on companies – especially when it comes to handling consumer and customer data. Nevis is FIDO-certified and complies with PSD2 and GDPR – thereby helping it enhance customer satisfaction and strike a balance between marketing goals, security requirements and the regulatory framework.

Security against ATO and Fraud Detection

Nevis User Behaviour Analytics can reveal anomalies in user behaviour as a means of preventing and protecting against unauthorised access to data. It is possible to detect specific patterns of user behaviour that either point to normal or unusual behaviour.

The Nevis Identity Suite prevents suspicious access attempts or transactions by checking an additional authentication. Nevis allows the leading technologies used for anomaly detection to be combined on a single platform and provided as a central service for all applications. 

Excellent CX and Simplified Account Administration

Multi-factor authentication ensures maximum user-friendliness because biometric processes such as facial recognition or the analysis of typing behaviour cost neither time nor effort for the user.

Passwordless authentication verifies whether a user is actually who they claim to be. Unlike conventional systems, the user does not need to manually enter a character string (the password).

Instead of the password, other authentication procedures are used. Nevis uses biometric procedures such as facial recognition (e.g. FaceID from Apple) or fingerprints for passwordless authentication. This increases both security as well as user-friendliness while the comprehensive self-service functionality relieves the burden on your helpdesk and employees.

What Digital Customers Expect From Their Bank

Intuitive Login and Maximum Security

blue-plus blue-minus

The customer expectations of the finance sector are very clear: personal and account-based data, transaction data, etc. must be protected to the strictest security standards. Login processes and operator functions should be user-friendly and convenient.

Passwordless Login

blue-plus blue-minus

Users are no longer willing to remember and type in tedious passwords. Login procedures and control functions must be designed to maximise user convenience. Customers demand passwordless website logins – both on the desktop as well as on mobile browsers.

Access to Services – At Any Time and From Anywhere

blue-plus blue-minus

These days, customers have become used to using their mobile devices to complete their day-to-day banking transactions. When doing so, they appreciate uncomplicated and quick access to their personal financial data. Mobile apps must also guarantee a trouble-free online banking experience.

An Excellent Customer Experience

blue-plus blue-minus

Digital services must guarantee an optimum customer experience at every required location and at any time. This strengthens trust and customer loyalty. User-friendliness should always be the focus and should cater for the most varied customer requirements.

Targeted Points of Contact

blue-plus blue-minus

Traditional authentication procedures are often tiresome and costly. All too often, they do not guarantee effective protection for sensitive information. The challenge is to combine the greatest possible security with maximum usability. Even if the intuitive customer journey is interrupted at just one point, this will lead to a negative customer experience.
