AdNovum’s NEVIS Security Suite now FIDO certified

The NEVIS Security Suite of the Swiss software company AdNovum has passed the FIDO UAF interoperability tests with its authentication server and received the FIDO UAF certification from the FIDO Alliance. FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) is an open industry standard for secure, fast and simple online authentication.

The FIDO Universal Authentication Framework (FIDO UAF) supports password-less authentication for websites and mobile applications. With FIDO, companies benefit from standardized authentication solutions that can be introduced cost-effectively and extended to include new, stronger authentication methods such as fingerprint or face recognition. The FIDO certificate gives NEVIS customers the assurance that the product meets the specifications and that it can be combined with FIDO components of other vendors.

This ensures maximum flexibility and a high level of investment protection for customers. With NEVIS, AdNovum expands the interoperable ecosystem of products and services on which organizations worldwide can build FIDO authentication solutions.

Committed to Password-less Authentication
AdNovum strives to provide user-friendly mobile authentication which meets the security requirements of banking, insurance and government solutions. The NEVIS Security Suite has therefore been integrating secure and convenient mobile authentication based on the FIDO standard since autumn 2018.

AdNovum is committed to establishing FIDO as the standard for banking, insurance and government in the DACH region and in Singapore. For this reason, AdNovum joined the FIDO Alliance – the world’s largest ecosystem for standards-based, interoperable authentication – as sponsoring member in early 2019.

Milestone
Stephan Schweizer, Chief Product Officer NEVIS at AdNovum and Managing Director of the NEVIS Security GmbH,” For the NEVIS Security Suite, this FIDO certification is a milestone. It reflects our constant efforts to make life easier for our customers by offering them interoperable solutions based on current industry standards.”
