Bank-owned Nigerian e-payments firm InterSwitch is deploying Gemalto's Ezio authentication technology to secure customer transactions.
InterSwitch - which comprises 25 member banks - has signed for the vendor's Ezio strong authentication server as well as card readers and unconnected tokens.
The EMV card readers and tokens create one-time-passwords to secure payments made by customers of InterSwitch member banks. The technology will secure customers when paying bills and taxes online and accessing Internet banking services, such as fund transfer.
Mitchell Elegbe, MD, InterSwitch, says: "We launched our EMV migration program with Gemalto and the company has proven a reliable partner. This success contributed to creating a strong business relationship and this is why we selected Gemalto for our strong authentication program."
