PARIS and ZURICH – September 30th, 2021 – Qonto’s mission is to simplify business finance management, through the clever integration of banking, accounting, and expense management services with a fully digital user experience. In view of providing its clients with an unrivalled service, and in order to meet EBA’s PSD2 strong customer authentication (SCA) requirements, Qonto decided to migrate away from SMS messages and use Futurae authentication platform, instead.

Qonto selects Futurae convinced by the provided technology, quality of service, and fully aligned company goals. In choosing a key vendor for the first interaction its clients perform when using the e-banking portal and mobile apps, Qonto identified Futurae security and usability know-how combination, modern and clean API interfaces, as well as the most scalable backend infrastructure, as the winning reasons towards a successful collaboration. Qonto was convinced by Futurae’s successful track record in providing security services out of its 24x7 monitored cloud deployment to European customers of the likes of Scalable Capital, SIX Group, Santander Consumer Bank, to name a few.
