Thales e-Security has launched its 3D-Security module, a hardware system designed to support the 3D-secure online payments standard developed by Visa and MasterCard.
Thales says the device is an all-in-one hardware product that provides banks the highest level of protection for Access Control Server (ACS) security processes.
The module is based on a failover-capable hardware architecture and support Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode cryptographic calculations.
If more performance is needed, the plug-and-play product allows firms to add more hardware devices without having to change the existing infrastructure.
The 3D-Security module also integrates with the host security module already present at a bank's back office.
Paul Meadowcroft, head of transaction security at Thales e-Security, says:
"Providing the core security component of Verified by Visa and MasterCard SecureCode, this new solution guarantees the highest level of security for Internet transactions."
