Vega Solutions Develop New Mobile Banking App For Kleinwort Hambros
Vega Solutions are proud to announce that Kleinwort Hambros have launched a new mobile banking application built on the Vega technology.
The “KH Online” app uses Vega’s Sirius web portal technology to give users secure access to manage their bank accounts, view investment portfolios and make internal, domestic and international payments.
In common with all Vega’s software, the application has multiple security features which benefit from being on a mobile device such as: push notifications, runtime application self-protection and a secure PIN login with support for biometric authentication through fingerprint scanning or Face ID.
The application sees the first implementation of the Vega Platform Notification Service which generates mobile push notifications to be received by clients; this ensures that access to accounts and payments can only be carried out using the secure mobile application that has been authenticated by the user.
RASP (runtime application self-protection) allows Vega to shut down the application when threats are detected, such as code injection, debuggers and foreground override attacks. When a threat is detected, Vega can automatically report the intrusion to the bank administrators for further investigation.
Many of the features of the KH Online app have been developed to have a generic application across Vega’s other portal products. This includes the Sirius Wealth Management Portal and their e-banking solutions for private clients and corporate intermediaries.
David Collings, Managing Director and Chief Technology Officer at Vega, said “Vega have been at the forefront of building secure internet technologies for over 20 years. The launch of our mobile application will help our clients service the next generation of high net worth individuals and their advisors”.
Working with Kleinwort Hambros on this project has been a fantastic opportunity for Vega to promote their work in the app development arena. Engaging with Microsoft’s Xamarin app development technology means that we have been able to use C# to develop apps under a common codebase more quickly than would have been possible using separate native Java and Objective-C/Swift implementations.
