With its Digital Identity Hub, Signicat offers specialised trust services that include electronic ID cards and other verification methods from all over Europe.
Verimi is the leading cross-industry identification and authentication platform in Germany and will enter into a strategic partnership with Signicat in Germany.
Berlin, 27 March 2019 – Verimi, the identity platform, and Signicat, the digital identity solution provider, today announced a partnership. The result of this partnership is an extended multi-factor identification and authentication solution for the whole of Europe. The agreement signed today includes the provision of Verimi services in Signicat’s Digital Identity Hub.
Verimi is the leading ID provider in Germany and was selected by Signicat as a strategic ID partner to enter the German market after extensive testing. Signicat’s Digital Identity Hub enables companies to integrate just one ID platform and then identify their customers once and authenticate them repeatedly in a legally compliant manner. Through this partnership, Signicat customers can now also integrate German electronic identities into their business processes.
The agreement enables Verimi to gain further international partners. In addition, Verimi will offer Signicat’s solutions in Germany as an ID provider. Signicat will integrate Verimi’s services into its Digital Identity Hub and provide its own customers with Verimi’s identification and authentication methods. Overall, the partnership will ensure secure and efficient digital onboarding, comprehensive digital identity verification services and services that enable regulatory compliance across Europe.
Signicat and Verimi will jointly offer verified digital identity solutions for regulated industries. Verified digital identities are becoming increasingly important for many sectors, especially banking, financial services, insurance and public administration.
Gunnar Nordseth, CEO of Signicat, says: “Germany is rapidly becoming a digital pioneer. Our partnership with Verimi enables us to offer our international customers an excellent method of identity verification and authentication and to attract new customers. Verimi’s exciting offering opens new doors for us in Germany and we look forward to working with them.”
“Verimi is starting to establish itself in the European digital identity market and Signicat is the ideal partner for Verimi to attract even more new customers in Europe. We are delighted to partner with Signicat and become the preferred ID provider in Germany,” says Roland Adrian, CEO of Verimi.
