Enhanced briidge.net Connect Service and Mobile SDK Combine
Simplicity, Security to Protect High-Value Transactions on iOS and
“With this release, we have renamed our briidge.net Enterprise Service to briidge.net Connect to better reflect its use in providing strong authentication for consumer-facing markets, helping users connect to online and mobile applications in a simple, trusted fashion,” said
SecureKey’s software-only solution is modeled after a hardware secure element and uses the same standard GlobalPlatform security protocols to ensure that each device can be uniquely identified and verified by the briidge.net Connect Service using an out-of-band channel.
The new Connect SDK offers ubiquitous strong security for any mobile app on Android and iOS platforms, including the new iPhone 5S and 5C devices, and provides seamless migration to hardware-based security. With increased mobile app security, service providers can introduce more high-value services, attract more customers and gain competitive advantage.
The briidge.net Connect Service also includes the briidge.net Connect mobile app — downloadable from the iTunes and Google Play app stores—that supports single-click, out-of-band web authentication on mobile devices for simple and secure online account sign-ins and transaction confirmations.
Both the Connect SDK and the downloadable Connect mobile app employ briidge.net DNA technology to provide unique device IDs for a wide range of applications supported by the briidge.net Connect Service.
