CEO, Philip King said: "I am delighted, on behalf of the team, to be introducing the world's first solution ready to combine all current advances in consumer authentication with the simplicity and familiarity of the Cardholder's PIN. For issuers and Card Schemes, myPINpad is a secure authentication platform able to help drive branded card usage through mobile and other digital environments, including un-banked regions. Our solution also delivers rapid transition to channel-agnostic consumer authentication, enabling acquirers and PSPs to fulfil regulatory obligations and help protect merchants.
