Clear2Pay, the international technology provider of next generation payment solutions for financial institutions has received the compliance certification from JCB for its 3-D Secure product suite. Element ACS and Element MPI products support now JCB's J/Secure authentication solution in addition to Verified by VISA and MasterCard SecureCode.
The Element ACS handles cardholder authentication for Issuers, authenticating the Payer using Password, Token, Secure device or GSM. The Element ACS supports powerful back office for administration, issuers and cardholders. The Element ACS is designed that it can operate in three different modes: attempt, stand- alone or integrated (with e-banking). Together with the Cardholder Enrolment Server facilitating registration and activation of cardholders, the Element ACS forms the complete Internet payment solution for Issuers. With this recent certification, it is now also available for JCB issuers.
The Element MPI handles cardholder authentication for Merchants and Acquirers according to the 3-D Secure protocol. The Element MPI provides an unprecedented back office enabling configuration of system and security parameters, and view of authentication transactions in detail. Together with ProxyPay POS Server and Gateway, the Element MPI forms the complete Internet payment solution for acquirers. Like Element ACS, it is now also available for JCB acquirers.
JCB is the 4th international credit card brand and the largest card issuer/acquirer in Japan, through its alliances with more than 320 leading banks and financial institutions globally. Its merchant network includes 11.4 million merchants and spans 189 countries and territories. JCB cards are now issued in 18 countries and territories, with 49.6 million cardholders.
Ronny Leplae, Vice President at Clear2Pay comments: "Clear2Pay has a proven track record of successes with its products running at individual acquirers and issuers, and multi-member processors.
