French authentication solutions firm Inside Secure is partnering with Finnish Saas company Visma Solutions on biometric authentication.

Visma Solutions has chosen Inside Secure’s mobile authentication and payment authorization service for its Netvisor ID and other online services.

Inside Secure Strong Authentication, formerly known as MePIN, is a white label authentication platform for large service providers and a ready-to-go authentication service for small and medium-sized services. 

Netvisor ID is a mobile application that functions as a convenient public key certificate enabling digital signatures of transactions. Inside Secure’s solution helps Visma to protect user logins and transactions to make the authentication process a convenient user experience. The solution also enables payment and other transaction authorization, complying with the upcoming PSD2 directive.

”Netvisor simplifies and secures online logins allowing users to authenticate access with a PIN or fingerprint swipe in the mobile application,” said Janne Lyytikäinen, product director of Visma Solutions. ”Inside Secure’s solution helps Visma provide better ways to strongly authenticate their international users, where they don’t have Finnish bank accounts that are used to authenticate those customers. Early feedback from users is quite positive, especially appreciating the fingerprint authentication option.”

”Users expect a great experience with all of their mobile applications,” said Markku Mehtälä, vice president of authentication at Inside Secure. "Our Strong Authentication solutions are especially good at combining strong security and usability, and support the strategy of Inside Secure to become a major player in the security as a service market.”
