Security and authentication are two of our core competences. Our requirements-based Managed IAM & Security services are designed to offer the maximum security at the lowest prices, enabling you to focus effectively on your core competences.

First-class network

The reliability of transmission paths is decisive for Mobile ID. For this reason, Swisscom systematically invests in quality when setting up and expanding the telecommunications network. In 2012 alone, CHF 1.7 billion were invested in network expansion, CHF 400 million more than in 2010. Worldwide, and not just in Switzerland, we are the preferred partner for private individuals and businesses that value comprehensive, high-quality and reliable coverage. In countries that do not have their own network, we work exclusively with roaming partners that meet our quality requirements.

A leader in sustainability

According to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices, Swisscom is one of the five most sustainable telecommunications companies in the world. The Mobile ID authentication service also supports our efforts to achieve greater sustainability. Users of Mobile ID are already identified by means of their SIM card. All Mobile ID providers, as well as Swisscom, therefore avoid the many process steps involved at the start of a registration, which usually have to be handled via letter post. Thanks to Mobile ID, many business processes can also be handled online. Forms, orders, etc. no longer need to be printed out and sent.
