As the bank app is available for millions of users, KBC is picky on the services it allows to display in the app, and it is picky on the parties that can build an integration into their app. A stringent security check and penetration testing is part of the procedure to be accepted on their platform.
"Since KBC is very selective in the services it accepts, the procedure to get accepted took some time. Based on previous experience in fintech and banking, we could show and demonstrate not only technical expertise, but also what we do on a governance level.
", Geert Roete, CEO of Infinity Mobile explains. "Our team worked in close collaboration with the security and audit team of the bank to promptly answer any request for information."
The close collaboration paid off since the integration of the Sayl Cloud
platform into the KBC app was done in a 2 months window, a record time for the bank. To avoid any doubt, the Sayl Cloud platform
is the platform hosting and running the digital services like VIP lounge and Fastlane security check.
"The idea of Brussels Airport is to open as much channels as possible towards their digital services for the passengers. In that sense the integration of one of Belgium's most popular apps definitely is a big step forward. Personally I'm happy that we can extend our technology platform with an integration that further shows what it is capable of.", Benoit Hossay, CTO of Sayl, adds.
