SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY
As the open banking ecosystem grows, financial services institutions are going to have to adopt technology that allows them to expose and protect multiple APIs to ensure they’re not left behind. This promises to be the biggest evolution of the financial services industry in more than 500 years. To remain competitive and be able to quickly adapt and embrace new business opportunities, enterprises need a digital banking strategy with identity and access management (IAM) at its core.
PSD2 & OPEN BANKING SOLUTION BRIEF
IAM: THE KEY TO OPEN BANKING
The Ping Identity Platform is a comprehensive IAM solution built on open standards and designed for the rigors of the open banking era. It’s used by many large retail banks, challenger banks and emerging fintech organizations, as well as the Open Banking Implementation Entity (OBIE) itself. Its advanced integration capabilities provide a solid foundation for a highly secure API framework.
For secure XS2A, combine our market-leading federation solution (PingFederate) and our application and API access security solution (PingAccess). This provides comprehensive support for an OAuth 2.0-based API security model, including OpenID Connect (OIDC) and financial API specifications.
PingID, our contextual multi-factor authentication (MFA) solution, provides a foundation for supporting the SCA requirements mandated by PSD2. PingID enables compliance with the Dynamic Linking requirement of PSD2 through support for payment MFA notifications that specify the payee and amount, so customers know exactly what they’re paying for.
Each time a customer requests access to their account data via a third-party provider (TPP), the account holding institution must check the request against data consent policies and log an auditable consent record. This is supported by our highly scalable identity datastore (PingDirectory) and our customer-centric data access and consent management product (PingDataGovernance).
