Banfico and InfoCert announce exclusive partnership to offer Open Banking / PSD2 Certificates from Banfico’s OB Directory

Banfico Ltd, a leading Open Banking technology solution provider to banks and fintechs, has partnered with InfoCert S.p.A, the leading Certificate Authority at the European level, to bring enhanced security solutions to its OB Directory product. The OB Directory service by Banfico is already a trusted solution used by some of the biggest financial institutions in Europe for validating open banking certificates and conducting real-time checks of Third Party Provider (TPP) regulatory status.

This partnership will allow both banks and TPPs to request and manage their open banking certificates (be it QWAC/QSealC or OBWAC/OBSealC) through the Open Banking Directory while ensuring regulatory compliance and secure data transmission during financial transactions across Europe. InfoCert’s expertise and experience in security and trust services make it an ideal partner for Banfico to expand its services and reach new markets. Along with certificate management, Banfico is also releasing ServiceDesk on its OB Directory for TPPs to seek support from the market ASPSP (banks).

Michele Guido Mario Lavizzari, Chief International Development Officer at InfoCert, said, “With this partnership, InfoCert will further increase its presence in Europe and lay the foundations to explore other markets implementing open banking and open finance frameworks.” Meanwhile, Kannan Rasappan, Banfico CEO, said, “InfoCert has a proven track record on security and trust services, along with Banfico technology, we can further enhance our offering across the world.

This strategic partnership between Banfico and InfoCert is expected to revolutionize the Open Banking ecosystem by providing a secure and efficient solution to manage open banking certificates and regulatory compliance.
