Shape the way you authenticate with Convego® AUTH-U

As a trusted financial institution, your customers rely on you to provide top-notch security and convenience, particularly when it comes to protecting their accounts and authenticating them. However, the proliferation of authentication channels means that managing access has become more complex.

Although the thought of migrating to a unified authentication solution may seem daunting, the risks of non-compliance and exposure to phishing attacks are much greater.

Shape the way you authenticate - with just the right amount of friction.
