Partnership created with the goal of elevating network-based security and mobile user experience without compromising privacy
(25th October 2018 – Hong Kong) The leading company in Asia providing Security and Data Backup solutions, Benefit Vantage Limited (BVL), and its Mobile authentication solution called IPification is announcing a strategic partnership with Apigate, the next-generation API Ecosystem Platform.
The strong partnership is created with the mutual goal of elevating network-based security and mobile user experience without compromising privacy. This is possible as IPification technology is leveraging operator capabilities outside traditional SMS, header enrichment and USSD channels and not needing any private information of a user to complete the authentication process for identifying users when signing in to websites and applications.
IPification’s network-based technology will be incorporated within Apigate’s API platform, ApigateHub to bring seamless and secure mobile authentication to various businesses across Asia including banking, fintech, OTT, eCommerce and Gaming.
IPification and Apigate are currently working on integrating the technology within their Identity API so the new authentication solution can be first implemented across Axiata Operating Companies (OpCos).
“IPification is the solution that compliments Mobile Connect and provides Mobile Operators the most advanced authentication solution for its partners across many different segments, opening up substantial API revenue streams. Apigate is recognising the importance of the cooperation for all participants of the mobile ecosystem, from Operators to various business, and is eager to lead the way in Asia”, stated Zoran Vasiljev, CEO of Apigate.
“We see the “IPification” of the Telco industry as an extremely important step toward fortifying the central role of the Mobile Network Operators as it is constantly being challenged by OTT players. Together with Apigate we will bring this much-needed change across Asia faster.” Harry Cheung, President of IPification explained.
