Safe lockKsmartech – a Korean security and certification leader – has expanded its partnership with Trustonic to secure its digital One-Time-Password (OTP) service on all Android and iOS devices. 

Ksmartech’s digital authentication services are already widely available on Android devices – it is used by Hana Card to protect its customers – enabling secure OTP generation within banking and financial services applications at the click of a button. The new OTP solution integrates Trustonic Application Protection (TAP) to expand support to iPhones and deliver secure authentication across all consumer devices.  

Sunho Jung, CEO of Ksmartech, commented: “Trustonic is the only security software vendor that could meet our needs. Securing our OTP service on Android devices has been a huge success so now is the right time to expand our relationship to enable developers to secure apps for all of their users, whatever device they are using. With a single SDK, app developers in Korean banks and enterprises can now eliminate hardware tokens, which users dislike, and secure OTPs inside both iOS and Android apps. We are already working with clients on multiple projects and look forward to announcing commercial roll outs later this year.” 

Ben Cade, CEO of Trustonic, added: “We are committed to making life easier for mobile app developers to deliver highly secure apps for consumers, whatever device they are using.  In collaboration with Ksmartech, we are increasing mobile security while also making apps faster and easier to use. Consumers can now receive the same secure user experience, regardless of the device or operating system, and all app developers need is a single SDK.”
