Nexus launches user authentication with Swedish BankID as a cloud service
Identity and security company Nexus Group launches user authentication with Swedish BankID as a cloud service. “In less than a day, you have the solution in place and can say goodbye to passwords — and you only pay SEK 1 999 per month and SEK 0.35 per authentication,” says Malin Ridelius, product specialist at Nexus.
PRESS RELEASE 2017-02-28 Swedish BankID is an electronic identity (eID) that is comparable to a driver’s licence, passport and other physical identification documents. It enables organizations to identify individuals in web services, mobile web services and mobile applications.
“7.2 million Swedes use BankID, and it is by far the most popular eID in Sweden. Previously it has been difficult and expensive to integrate authentication with BankID in user portals, but with our new cloud service we make it incredibly easy and cost effective,” says Ridelius.
Nexus acts as the so-called relying party for BankID, which means that Nexus handles all costs and contracts towards the BankID selling bank.
“The only thing you need to do is to create an account in our new self-service portal Nexus GO and follow the simple instructions for integration, and then your users can log in with BankID. We are incredibly proud that we have managed to make the process this smooth,” says Ridelius.
The new cloud service, Nexus GO Authentication with Swedish BankID, supports both the desktop version and the mobile version of BankID.
There are two price plans: Medium costing SEK 1,999 per month and SEK 0.35 per authentication, and Large costing SEK 3,999 per month and SEK 0.27 per authentication. It is also possible to test Nexus GO Authentication with Swedish BankID for free, and you get real-time reporting of your usage.
Nexus GO Authentication with Swedish BankID is the first service to be launched in Nexus GO, where Nexus technology will be made available as services.
“We will soon make it possible to integrate authentication with other countries’ electronic identities, and we will also release a range of other services for digital signing, IoT security and access control products,” says Gustaf Broman, product manager for Nexus GO.
