BNP Paribas Bank Polska has started cooperation with Secfense,
a Polish startup cybersecurity company based in Krakow.
The cooperation between BNP Paribas Bank Polska and Secfense focuses mainly on developing a modern MFA solution. Especially during the pandemic, multi-factor authentication
(also known as strong or two-factor authentication) has become one of the best ways to limit the risks of phishing and credential theft. Strong authentication ensures equally high-security levels for both users requesting access from home and at the office.
According to a recent Gartner study, companies that introduce remote work quickly and without MFA in 2021 will experience five times more account takeover incidents than those that use MFA. (Gartner, Enhance Remote Access Security with Multi-factor Authentication and Access Management, May 2020)
Until recently, a large-scale MFA adoption has been a difficult undertaking since it necessitated changing the codes of existing applications. User Access Security Broker, a new technology developed by Secfense, solves this issue. Its main features are scalability and flexibility, which allow for MFA deployment on any number of applications and freedom to choose any authentication method that is best suited to the way the applications are used.
Cybersecurity experts at BNP Paribas Bank Polska appreciate the User Access Security Broker developed by Secfense. Our Cybersecurity team will work together with Secfense to further improve this solution.Krzysztof Slotwinski, Business Comtinuity and Computer Security Officer at BNP Paribas Bank Polska
