Entersekt is an innovator in transaction authentication. Young and dynamic, inspired by the power of a pioneering security system, and supported by sure-footed investors, we have in six years moved rapidly to fill an important niche in the provision of online security globally.


Our goal is, quite simply, to deliver gold standard user authentication: innovative products, built on a rock-solid security platform, that allow financial institutions and other enterprises to communicate interactively with their customers through that ubiquitous device, the mobile phone.

Our approach harnesses the power of digital certificate technology with the convenience of mobile phones to provide organizations and their customers or employees with full protection from account takeover fraud. With our solutions authenticating millions of transactions globally each day, not one of our clients has experienced a successful phishing attack on their systems.
