TORONTO, Canada,

SecureKey Technologies today announced that Desjardins Group, the leading cooperative financial group in Canada, has reached an agreement with SecureKey to become a Trusted Sign-In Partner participating in the SecureKey Concierge™ service, following integration and associated compliance approvals.

The SecureKey Concierge service is delivered through a secure cloud service that grants users access to critical online services via their familiar online banking sign-in process, rather than having to create yet another user ID and password to manage. While using their trusted credential from a Sign-In Partner to access online services, SecureKey Concierge ensures that no passwords or personal information (name, date of birth, etc.) are shared or exchanged.

Through SecureKey Concierge, Desjardins members and clients will be able to securely access online services from subscriber organizations in the public and private sector, including the Government of Canada, using their existing Desjardins online banking login IDs and passwords.

Desjardins will join Trusted Sign-In Partners such as BMO Financial Group, Choice Rewards MasterCard, Royal Bank of Canada, Scotiabank, Tangerine (formerly ING Direct) and TD Canada Trust.

SecureKey Concierge has experienced substantial usage growth in the past year and operates on SecureKey’s industry-leading briidge.net Exchange™ Platform, the market-leading multi-tenant federated authentication and identity platform.

“As consumers rely on online services for everything from taxes, to banking, to shopping, the need to create and remember multiple passwords is growing more frustrating—causing headaches for both the consumer and service provider,” said Didier Serra, EVP, sales & marketing, SecureKey. “SecureKey Concierge eliminates this burden by enabling citizens to sign in to critical online services using existing banking credentials to provide more convenient access. We’re thrilled to have Desjardins Group committed to joining the already impressive list of Sign-In Partners to offer citizens the best of both worlds—simple access to online services, and the security and privacy they expect.”
