Verisec, the company behind the mobile e-identification service Freja eID, today announced the launch of a long-term collaboration with Consid – one of Sweden’s fastest growing IT-consultant companies. The collaboration enables Freja eID to be used in many of the services developed and managed by Consid.

Freja eID is an ecosystem of trusted digital identities. The service offers two levels of trust, a basic level where the user makes a self-registration and a plus level with a higher trust in which the user must also verify his or her identity through a physical identity check. This higher level – Freja eID + – is approved by the Swedish E-Identification Board for the quality mark Svensk E-legitimation (Swedish eID).

With offices in fourteen Swedish cities, the fast-growing company Consid is a strong partner in Verisesc´s strive to launch a national infrastructure around e-ID. The prerequisite for many of the digital services available today and in the future is a strong identity. Freja eID is a mobile e-ID that is controlled by the user to log in, sign and communicate securely in the digital world. Instead of using passwords the log in and transactions are confirmed with fingerprint or PIN in the user friendly Freja eID app.

Peo Strömberg, Head of Innovation, Consid comments:
“Freja eID is the next generation electronic identities with several advantages over competitors. The functionality of the service is sharper than the competitors, but the distribution is even more efficient as the physical identity checks are done via Freja eID agents and not by banks. There is also a more flexible business model where customers pay a fixed price instead of a per-transaction cost which means that, for example, public sector organisations easier and more efficiently can budget the cost.”

Johan Henrikson, VD Verisec comments:
“The partnership with Consid is part of building strong relationships to deliver attractive services in all parts of the user´s digital life. Identity is a key, but to create end user value, there must be a lock that opens a door. The services provided by Consid, together with their customers, create a foundation for Freja eID to become both relevant and valuable to the user. ”
