New processor tokens give end users easier and more secure ways to verify bank accounts and do account balance checks
Sila Inc., a fintech software platform that provides payment infrastructure as a service, and MX, a leader in Open Finance, announced that they have completed integration work of MXapi Processor Tokens with Sila. This will allow Sila customers and their end users to more easily and securely verify bank accounts and account data for fraud mitigation and account balance checks. The use of processor tokens is the latest result of the strategic partnership between Sila and MX.
“Sila consistently strives to streamline our customers’ workflow”
Bank account verification is a key element of any account opening process. It involves verifying a customer’s name, account, balances and other details. Yet the typical process of manual entry or microdeposits to verify a bank account introduces delays and frustrates end users. As a result, the industry is moving away from error-prone methods of manually entering account and routing information to token-based authentication.

Faster and more secure than using microdeposits or relying on manual entry, tokenized authentication with MXapi Processor Tokens removes the need to share and store sensitive user data when initiating money movement. It also further mitigates fraud and risk. Now, Sila clients and partners can leverage MXapi Processor Tokens for a more convenient and flexible way to access these token-based account verification services and do account balance checks.
“Sila consistently strives to streamline our customers’ workflow,” said Shamir Karkal, CEO and co-founder of Sila. “Investing our time and resources to identify the right partners and collaborating with them to deliver time and cost savings for our customers sets Sila apart. Joining forces with a partner like MX, which shares the same goals and vision, makes that even easier to achieve for Sila and our valued customers.”
