Aconite, the leading provider of chip and mobile software solutions, is pleased to announce the first commercial deployment of our mobile EMV scripting solution.
Maintaining and updating the settings in mobile applications after being provisioned to handsets is a critical part of the end-to-end management of a mobile payment program, and is not something that is typically provided by an application provisioning system or Trusted Service Manager (TSM). Now a major European processor has selected Aconite's Mobile Application Manager (MoAM) to support their mobile scripting needs, providing a low-cost, fast-track enhancement of their existing authorization systems to support the broad range of EMV scripts needed to manage EMV applications on a mobile NFC handset. Aconite's Mobile Application Manager will support counter-resets, passcode changes and other scripts required to fully implement EMV in a mobile environment.
The EMV Scripting features delivered by Aconite's Mobile Application Manager are based on Aconite's award winning Smart EMV Manager product which provides a wide range of capabilities out-of-the-box, and can be rapidly configured to support new functions, applications and script types without requiring complex integration or expensive customization. Both products follow Aconite's philosophy of allowing issuers of card and mobile applications to retain their existing systems and to acquire smart card and mobile functions through an Aconite plug-in solution. In addition to generating EMV scripts for managing mobile EMV applications, Aconite's Mobile Application Manager can provide full application data preparation, key management and personalization, authorize EMV transactions delivered over-the-air or through conventional networks and provide real-time analytics of transaction data.
Patrick Regester, Aconite's EVP for Sales and Marketing said "Aconite is proud to be at the forefront of this critical area of mobile application management. Our legacy of providing EMV and smart chip lifecycle solutions to issuers around the world over many years gives us a solid foundation on which to build corresponding mobile products. Our depth of knowledge in the smart card and mobile arena allows us to rapidly deploy our extensive product range to meet the real needs of issuers and processors."
