Oslo 2.September 2014 – Skandiabanken has integrated Promon Shield security technology from Promon in Norway into its new mobile banking service.
"Promon has achieved success with its security technology for mobile apps and Windows programs, particularly in markets where cyber-crime is more extensive than in Norway at present. Promon's technology currently protects several million users in countries such as Germany, Sweden, The Netherlands and Norway. Skandiabanken is the first Norwegian bank to introduce Promon Shield as an added protection for their mobile banking service, providing an extra layer of security for the bank's customers," confirms Jan Søgaard, CEO of Promon.
"Skandiabanken is purely an online bank. We therefore have a clear focus on measures to secure confidential customer information and transactions. We have chosen Promon Shield for our mobile banking service, as the technology involved provides extra protection against malware on our users' mobile phones and tablets, without requiring any changes with how our mobile banking service is used and without any action required on the part of the customer," explains Thomas Tjøstheim, Product Manager Security and Customers for Skandiabanken."We are very satisfied with Promon. The system provides an extra layer of protection for our new mobile bank on top of existing security measures and was implemented in a very short period of time. Promon offers a cost effective solution that guarantees optimal online banking security for our customers," confirms Thomas Tjøstheim.
