SecureKey Technologies has signed an agreement with EnStream to put SecureKey authentication technology on Canadian mobile phones.
EnStream is a joint venture of Bell Mobility, Rogers Communications and TELUS Corporation.
The agreement will increase the number of devices that will support SecureKey’s authentication products, which also include identity verification and online payment services. SecureKey credentials will be able to be deployed on SIM-based secure elements.
One of SecureKey’s new Canadian services is SecureKey Concierge, which is being used by the Government of Canada. This services allows Canadians access their online government services, such as pensions, taxes and benefits, using their bank authentication credentials.
The SecureKey partnership may enable future streamlining of authentication for services, including in the health care and financial services industries.
