There is no doubt that financial institutions require the highest security in order to protect valuable customer data and transaction history. While open-source alternatives are attractive from a cost perspective, application developers assume a lot of risk and the wrong choice for a security solution can increase overall time-to-market.
A proven solution from a respected security company such as Certicom provides strong performance and scalability, compliance to standards, and a solid support organization that can provide education and technical assistance for the long-term.
Certicom developer toolkits such as Security Builder® SSL™ or Security Builder® Crypto™ include standards-based algorithms that can provide the strong security demanded by financial institutions and their customers, and eliminate the risk of a relatively untested solution. Eighty percent smaller than open source alternatives, Security Builder® SSL™ enables efficient, secure SSL/TLS access to the application, regardless of the type of device accessing the data.
Additionally, one API across 30 platforms makes the developer toolkits easy to implement and reduces time-to-market.
Choosing a proven vendor such as Certicom ensures that an application developer can meet his/her needs for security through options like SSL/TLS security, while meeting his/her deadline for a new product and limiting exposure to risk.
