With over 1.7 million online customers, PostFinance's e-finance is the Swiss market leader in e-banking. The online offering is an important sales and communication channel and is continuously extended. Thanks to the integration of Swisscom Mobile ID, users can login securely from anywhere with their mobile phones.
AdNovum's security suite NEVIS has been used for access management in e-finance since 2007. It is also deployed by Swiss Post International (SPI) and PostLogistics. To be able to cope with the massive load of login and user sessions, the access management infrastructure comprises several entry servers with numerous instances. The NEVIS security suite supports session sharing and thus allows load balancing, i.e., an even distribution of the total load on the servers.
At the beginning of 2010, e-finance's login component and the management of access data were also migrated to NEVIS. As a result, PostFinance now has a central end-to-end security infrastructure that can be used not only for e-finance but also for other applications. The solution enables flexible authentication handling. New means of authentication can easily be integrated and the login process can be adapted at any time. Since October 2013, PostFinance offers customers the opportunity to login with their mobile phones using Mobile ID in addition to the login with PostFinance ID and Display Card. Swisscom's Mobile ID service is integrated into the access infrastructure via nevisProxy.
