Vitec chooses Verisec’s electronic ID

Press release

The Swedish Software company Vitec has chosen the IT-security company Verisec to deliver a complete ID solution for their software for the construction, realtor and real estate industries. The solution offers support for the existing e-ID solution, BankID, and will also support Freja eID, the new electronic ID service that Verisec is launching during autumn 2017.

Vitec develops standardised software for specific industries’ unique needs. As more of the products they’re developing are demanding that the users are able to identify themselves digitally in a secure way, the need for and e-ID has grown rapidly. Verisec’s electronic ID service Freja eID will be a part of the solution and be used for logging in to Boplats Sverige, a nationwide brokerage service for rental apartments which serves as a marketplace with currently 260 000 connected rental apartments.

Mikael Georgsson, Business Development Director at Vitec Förvaltningssystem AB, comments:
“To give the users the possibility to identify themselves and sign documents with an e-ID has many advantages compared to building unique ID solutions for each service. Through the cooperation with Verisec we’re creating a secure and flexible management for logging in and digital signatures. It is important to maintain a high level of security when we are streamlining the digital processes.“

Johan Henrikson, CEO Verisec, comments:
“The value of a electronic ID for the user is determined by the number of relevant services that it can be used for. Vitec becomes an important customer with their extensive service Boplats Sverige, which gives us the possibility to reach a large user group with Freja eID. This, in turn, is important to attract more services to connect to Freja eID’s eco system of identities.”
