Banking and Insurance
Employees at Swisscanto are granted access to the internal system with a combination of password and mTAN. The codes for the second level of authentication are sent to the employees’ cellphones using SMS Gateway. The IT department at Swisscanto made the changeover to an access security system that involved no extra hardware; this significantly simplified the company’s hosting and administration duties. Users likewise appreciate the easy-to-use system. No need for the additional device or “token”.
"Today everyone carries their cellphone around with them everywhere they go, so the SMS solution is extremely practical. Our employees are very satisfied with the solution, and would never think of returning to a more complicated system." - Markus Küng, Head of IT Infrastructure and Member of the Board of Swisscanto.
At Sanitas, customers can manage their documents directly in the online portal, "SanitasNet". The portal features integrated two-factor authentication built on eCall mTANs as the main element, thus ensuring top security for sensitive insurance data. To protect the data from unauthorized access, an SMS is sent to the customer’s cellphone as an additional security procedure. The system provides customers with fast, simple yet secure access to their data – any time, anywhere.
"Thanks to state-of-the-art technology, data security has now reached the same advanced level as e-banking for banks." - Andrea Eglin, Service Management specialist at Sanitas
