Cornèr chooses AdNovum as Security Partner for Digitization

Use of NEVIS Security Suite as security infrastructure

Cornèr Bank, an innovative and globally oriented player among the Swiss banks, teams up with the Swiss software company AdNovum in the area of IT security, choosing to use the NEVIS Security Suite. This allows both customers and employees to access digital offers easily and securely also via mobile devices in the future.


When it comes to security, the renowned service provider Cornèr Bank, headquartered in the canton of Ticino, relies on AdNovum. The Swiss software company supports Cornèr in security consulting. As part of its digitization, Cornèr Bank plans to completely renew its IT platforms over the next few years. It intends to consolidate its web portals and transfer its applications landscape in a standardized way into a state-of-the-art security infrastructure. Cornèr Bank has chosen AdNovum’s NEVIS Security Suite to implement this plan. This makes Cornèr one of the first banks to offer its customers and employees secure, convenient and fast authentication and transaction signing on mobile devices.
