    The requirements for electronic banking solutions are continuously growing. In addition to professional and regulatory issues such as SEPA, EBICS or SOX, the desire for the highest possible security, the automation of payment processes as well as the integration into the existing infrastructure and ap-plication landscapes play an important role for corporations. Our electronic banking solution EBsec is the ideal product to make your payments simpler, more efficient, securer and sustainable.

    Corporations can only strengthen their competitive edge if they optimize their pro-cesses. This especially applies to payment transactions as they are the economic ba-sis for vital corporate functions.

    Conventional electronic banking systems often disregard aspects such as:

    Workflow and process optimization of existing payment processes,

    Consideration of integration options into the existing infrastructure of the organization,

    Protection of sensitive data from fraud by unauthorized persons,

    Intuitive and simple usability.

    These systems and processes that no longer meet modern standards are time-consuming and labor-intensive in their handling and also provide many potential sources for errors. This in turn can lead to a lack of security and to high costs.




    We were able to streamline our processes sig-nificantly: the processes that we had to trigger manually in the past now run in the background automatically, stably and securely. EBsec Professional was the right choice for us.

    Overview of the Professional Edition

    The EBsec Professional Edition comprises of edi-tions that have been specifically designed for the use as network- or multi-user-solutions for compa-nies with a higher demand for automation and integ-ration. They focus on automating their payments by using a time- and event-controlled system and seek to interlock it with the existing payment systems (STP Straight-Through Processing). Comprehen-sive interfaces for the integration within existing ap-plications and the definition of own process chains in the scope of a simple control of daily routines create optimization potentials.

    The further benefits of the EBsec Professional Edi-tion include stability and scalability due to the use of standard technologies, adjustable and failsafe com-munication, consolidation of numerous electronic banking products and independent system monito-ring including notification functionality.

    The highlights of this edition are the automated ser-vices such as communication, directory and system monitoring and administration tasks.

    Our edition with its specific scope of functionality al-lows you to select the features that meet your needs best.

    The enhancement of the software with optional functions such as enhanced database support, em-bedding kit for ideal integration in your existing IT infrastructure, audit function and SDD mandate ma-nagement for an efficient handling of SEPA direct debits, and numerous plugins are available at any time with the Professional Edition.

    Optionally, you can facilitate mobility for your sig-natories with the mobile signature. You can display all relevant line item and account balance informati-on and also electronically sign outstanding payment orders at any time regardless of your location by using your BlackBerry, iPhone,iPad or Android.

    Optional EBsec Add-Ons

    You can extend EBsec by optional add-ons in or-der to match it perfectly to your company-specific requirements.

    Internal SignaturesThis add-on helps reduce the administrative tasks of maintaining EBICS authorizations for banks and, thus, concentrate external signatories. In addition, it allows the integration of additional staff into the verification and approval process.

    The solution is an entirely an internal authorization concept in which, e.g., the principle of dual control for the generation of payment requests is solved di-rectly within the software. If requests have the re-quired internal signatures, the banking signatures, that are stored in the system in an encrypted man-ner, are added and the requests are sent to the bank for execution. Alternatively, you can, of course, ap-prove payments manually. All steps are logged in the system and you can retrace them anytime.

    RFC ConnectThis add-on is ideal for companies that connect their payment files from SAP systems directly to EBsec for transmission in order to improve data security.

    With the add-on, a host connector (RFC package) is imported into your data managing SAP system. Payment runs are readout following different filter

    criteria in SAP that are stored in the temporary SAP database TemSe and are transferred directly to EBsec from there via an interface. A temporary storage of payment files on your network drives is, thus, no longer necessary. Security is increased and administration made easier. With EBsec you can then approve payments as usual and transmit them to banks.

    Limit ModuleWith this add-on you can define specific amount li-mits for the authorization of payment orders on the user level. This allows for an even more specific ad-justment of the authorization concept to the indivi-dual requirements of your company.

    The Limit Module enables the definition of indivi-dual or user group-specific amount limits for the ap-proval of payment orders, either as a daily limit or a file limit (applies to specific payment order files, e.g., aggregate items). It is the ideal add-on for com-panies that have many users or increased security demands (e.g., due to a high staff turnover).

    The system-supported approach helps secure com-pliance with the internal requirements of a compa-ny for the approval of payment orders in regard to amount limits. Integrating additional staff members in the approval process relieves decision-makers of daily business/standard cases.

    Audit ModuleWith this add-on for EBsec you obtain a complete documentation of all changes that are made to the authorization profiles. This element is a pre-requi-site for your company to comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).

    With EBsec you achieve the security level you need by defining specific access authorizations for diffe-rent user groups. In addition, the system complies with current data privacy and security requirements, for example, by always saving your sensitive finan-cial data in an encrypted manner in the databases.

    Additional optional add-ons provide further advan-tages for a smooth execution of payments. For more details, please see our online download center.
