The Forum of Cooperative Bank Leaders, organized by the Polish Bank Association, is one of the most important events in the calendar of the cooperative banking sector in Poland. This year’s edition, which took place under specific market conditions, was particularly important for us. We had the pleasure of presenting at the forum together with the Cooperative Bank of Brodnica (BS Brodnica) the oldest bank in Poland and a leader in many industry rankings.

Secfense implementation at BS Brodnica: A case study

Why did BS Brodnica opt for strong authentication?

Strong authentication (MFA) is a mechanism that introduces an additional layer of security, effectively protecting accounts from unauthorized access. At BS Brodnica, the main reasons for implementing this mechanism were:

  • Increase the security level of protected resources.
  • Protect user accounts from phishing attacks.
  • Reducing the risk of password leaks.
  • Compliance with security regulations and standards, such as Rek.D, KNF, GDPR, DORA.

Choosing Secfense as a technology partner

BS Brodnica decided to implement the Secfense solution because of its scalability, ease of integration, and many other features that make it one of the most comprehensive and flexible solutions on the market.

Implementation process

The implementation of Secfense’s User Access Security Broker at BS Brodnica proceeded in several stages, from needs analysis to solution testing to production deployment. At every stage, the bank benefited from the support of the Secfense team, which allowed the project to be implemented efficiently and effectively.

Recommendations for other banks

BS Brodnica stresses that the key elements in choosing an authentication system are the speed of implementation and the standard of the solution. By using the Secfense broker, the bank was able to secure a variety of applications and systems in a short period of time, which is invaluable in a rapidly changing IT environment.

Make an appointment for demo and testing

We are faced with new challenges every day. We must always be one step ahead of the attackers and know what they are going to do before they do it. We are convinced that the User Access Security Broker will bring security to a new level, both for those working at the office and from home. For us, working with Secfense is an opportunity to exchange experience with developers who put great value on out-of-the-box thinking.

As part of the pre-implementation analysis, we verified that users utilize a wide range of client platforms: desktop computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones, and traditional mobile phones. Each of these devices differs in technological advancement, features, and level of security. Because of this, and also due to the recommendation of the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (UKNF), we decided to introduce additional protection in the form of multi-factor authentication mechanisms based on FIDO. As a result, users of our applications can log in safely, avoiding common cyber threats such as phishing, account takeover, and theft of their own and their clients’ data.

We are excited to partner with Secfense to enhance our user access security for our web apps. By integrating their User Access Security Broker, we ensure seamless and secure protection for our applications and systems, delivering superior security and convenience to our customers.

Before investing in Secfense, we had the opportunity to talk to its existing clients. Their reactions were unanimous: wow, it’s so easy to use. We were particularly impressed by the fact that implementing their solution does not require the involvement of IT developers. It gives Secfense a huge advantage over the competition, and at the same time opens the door to potential customers who so far were afraid of changes related to the implementation of multi-factor authentication solutions.

Managing Director


Even when the network and infrastructure are secured enough, social engineering and passwords can be used to gain control of the system by attackers. Multifactor authentication is the current trend. Secfense addresses this and allows you to build zero trust security and upgrade your current systems to passwordless applications within minutes, solving this problem right away,” said Eduard Kučera, Partner at Presto Ventures and cybersecurity expert – former Director in hugely successful Czech multinational cyber security firm Avast.

One of the biggest challenges the world is facing today is securing our identity online. That’s why we were so keen to have Secfense in our portfolio. They make it possible to introduce strong authentication in an automated way. Until now, organizations had to selectively protect applications because the deployment of new technology was very hard, or even impossible. With Secfense, the implementation of multi-factor authentication is no longer a problem, and all organizations can use the highest standards of authentication security.

Two-factor authentication is known to be one of the best ways to protect against phishing; however, its implementation has always been difficult. Secfense helped us solve that problem. With their security broker, we were able to introduce various 2FA methods on our web applications at once.
