TÜV TRUST IT GmbH TÜV AUSTRIA Group certifies SIGNAL IDUNA a high standard of security and data protection.
The SIGNAL IDUNA Group goes back to small support funds founded by self-employed people and traders over 110 years ago. Today, it offers its private and corporate clients a wide range of insurance and pension products that are subject to high quality standards. In order to meet this standard once again, SIGNAL IDUNA commissioned TÜV TRUST IT GmbH Unternehmensgruppe TÜV AUSTRIA to certify the “my SIGNAL IDUNA App” application. This application allows SIGNAL IDUNA clients to manage contracts, submit invoices and report claims, among other things.
Comprehensive certification audit in several steps
During a comprehensive certification audit according to the “Trusted App” catalogue of requirements, the application was checked for its security and data protection properties. The security analysis consisted of two procedures: a static check of the source code and a dynamic analysis of the application’s network traffic at runtime.
These analysis procedures were supplemented by further tests, among others in the categories data management, technical data protection, network communication and cryptographic aspects.
Successful completion of certification
The results of the certification audit confirm the very high security standard of the application. In addition, the investigation did not identify any direct threats from security gaps.
Thus, “my SIGNAL IDUNA App” version 4.9.5 (for iOS and Android respectively)) was successfully certified. “SIGNAL IDUNA offers its customers a reliable app in which useful functions and a high security standard are successfully combined. We would like to congratulate SIGNAL IDUNA on this successful application,” says René Decker, Senior Consultant at TÜV TRUST IT, drawing a positive conclusion.
