Compliance made easy and the rise of APIs – secured.

The PSD2 regulation and upcoming Open Banking standards are a veritable tsunami for European banks. They completely change the game, open the payments market to new competitors and increase compliance challenges. At the same time, innovation is accelerated and customer experience becomes an issue of prime importance, best addressed with an integrated suite of products. User-centric solutions will open new revenue streams and form the basis for a sustainable service model in underserved markets.

Airlock’s API Gateway functionality provides all relevant security features required to ensure compliance including integrated access management for PSD2 XS2A APIs, supporting NextGen PSD2 and Open Banking, identity federation, cross domain single sign-on and identity propagation.

Thanks to the central policy enforcement point, all regulatory changes or updates can be implemented upfront and once for all with no need to change every application or service individually.

Airlock makes achieving compliance for PSD2, GDPR, MAS, PCI-DSS and many more regulations easy.
