Sila partners MX to improve account verification via processor tokens

Friday 11 November 2022 14:50 CET | News

US-based fintech software platform Sila has partnered Open Finance company MX to improve bank account verification via processor tokens.


The two companies announced that they have successfully integrated MXapi Processor Tokens which will allow Sila customers to verify their bank accounts, account data, and balance checks in an easier and more secure way. 

According to MX, verifying a bank account is an important element in any account opening process. During this process, a customer’s name, account, and balances are verified, but the verification process involves manual entry or microdeposits, which can be time-consuming and even frustrating for end-users. Consequently, the industry is moving away from these error-prone methods of manually entering account and routing information, and towards token-based authentication. 

Tokenized authentication with MXapi Processor Tokens does not involve sharing and storing sensitive user data when initiating money movement, and it also lowers the risk of fraud. Through this partnership between Sila and MX, Sila customers gain access to MXapi Processor Tokens in order to access token-based account verification services and perform account balance checks. 

MX officials have stated in the company press release that these processor tokens were designed to allow their partners and clients to verify consumer financial data without being exposed to the risks of handling and storing sensitive information.
