Public sector

Organizations within the public sector need to identify their employees, consultants and students visually, as well as give them secure access to physical and digital resources. The public sector also needs to digitize, provide smooth e-services to the citizens, stave of cyber-attacks, and comply with regulations and eGovernment initiatives. Nexus has the solutions required to enable all of this.

It is important that only authorized people get access to facilities such as schools and digital resources such as health care systems, and that the organization follows all the rules and regulations that apply to the public sector, such as the GDPR and eIDAS. It is also paramount to take advantage of time and resource saving technologies such as digital signing, automation and self-service.

To make this possible, smooth and secure solutions for user login and digital signing are needed.

Nexus offers solutions that make it easy to integrate user login with two-factor authentication and signatures into a website. These solutions enable you to utilize nation-wide electronic IDs such as Swedish BankID, electronic IDs that follow the EU regulation eIDAS, and electronic IDs that you yourself issue to your users.
