The ubiquitous availability of mobile connectivity has spurred many ground-breaking applications and services. Mobile payment solutions are now fundamentally changing the way that payment transactions and services are being deployed. Many large credit card companies, payment acquirers and processing banks, mobile carriers, and a host of innovative new entrants are creating new ways to drive a number of easy to use solutions to the marketplace. A critical component to broad market acceptance and the successful proliferation of mobile commerce and transaction services is the promise to ensure secure access, confidentiality and privacy.
NewNet Communication Technologies and Perceptive Development, Inc., demonstrated an end-to-end secure mobile payment solution at the 2011 GSMA-Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
NewNet’s secure access Traxcom products process over 1.5 billion transactions a month and provide secure connectivity that enables the delivery of legacy transaction payment services and brand new services such as mobile payments, e-banking, and e-commerce. Integrated, next generation encryption technology such as the Derived Unique Key Payment Transaction (DUKPT) ensures data confidentiality and safety, and enables carriers to expand current services and enter new markets such as healthcare.
The Perceptive Development FlexTransact portfolio of mobile payment products and software services for mobile solutions are available on a broad variety of smart phone platforms including Apple iPhone®, and Google Android. FlexTransact solutions provide a highly secure, easy to deploy and easy to use credit card payment client solution to meet the growing demand in the marketplace.
“The mobile payments market is growing rapidly and we are excited to host this demonstration of the AccessGuard Platform based, end-to-end solution together with client side product suppliers such as Perceptive Development to deliver the promise of secure, high performance broadband and mobile payment solutions,” said Prasad Kallur, NewNet’s Executive Vice President for Business Development.
“We are very excited to team with NewNet to demonstrate this end-to-end secure mobile payment solution,” said Jim Medeiros, CEO at Perceptive Development. “Our expertise in developing secure payment processing solutions, coupled with NewNet’s payment processing platforms, provides a wonderful opportunity for us to combine efforts. We look to continue to enhance and broaden our relationship with NewNet as this important market evolves.”
The Derived Unique Key Payment Transaction (DUKPT) data encryption enables mobile devices with add-on transaction processing devices, such as magnetic strip card readers, smart card devices and NFC enabled Point of Sale devices, to work together with the AccessGuard Platforms to deliver a highly secure end-to-end mobile payments solution.
