Hi Tomasz, could you briefly introduce yourself and FINANTEQ?
My name is Tomasz Rożkiewicz, and I am Business Development Manager at FINANTEQ, an award winning company specializing in mobile banking. We were one of the first companies in the world to create a native mobile banking application, and have worked with several major banking groups in Poland and the Middle East.
Most of these remain our clients, benefitting from our experience and outside the box thinking. We also create mobile banking components, easily integrable products that enrich banking apps, and help our clients become digital leaders.
How do you use Promon SHIELD™?
At the moment, we are in the middle of a Proof of Concept (PoC) project with one of the largest commercial banks in Poland. We have also integrated Promon SHIELD™ in previous app development projects for our clients
Why did you decide on In-App Protection?
We provide our clients with the best possible mobile banking experience, and by taking security seriously we build trust. We decided on In-App Protection because there were some areas we felt needed additional protection.
Any particular trends in the banking industry driving the need for stronger app security?
Banking is going mobile, there is no doubt about that. As an industry, we are clearly seeing the rise in mobile platforms, but so do people with malicious intent. There has been a sharp increase in attacks on mobile banking apps all over the world, so we felt an obligation to keep our clients safe.
Why did you choose Promon SHIELD™?
Following a thorough search, and extensive testing, we decided on Promon SHIELD™. Not only does it cover all the basic features we’re looking for; it actually exceeded our expectations. The customer care and responsiveness of the Promon team has also been second to none.
Any product features that really stood out for you?
For me, it was the ease of integration coupled with a vast range of security mechanisms. The flexibility of Promon SHIELD™ was another differentiating factor.
What have you been most impressed with?
Promon SHIELD™ is one of the best security solutions on the market, and yet so easy to integrate. The customer support has been very impressive as well.
Can you tell us a bit more about Promon’s integration process?
Promon provided us with all necessary tools, accompanied by complete technical documentation describing use cases and possible configurations. We also received a proposed configuration file containing a set of recommended options. We could count on their professional support in every stage of the project.
