18 February 2016  |  1352 views  |  1 Source: Bell ID

Bell ID, the mobile payments specialist recently acquired by Rambus Cryptography Research, today announces it will support international issuing banks, payment schemes and processors to integrate with Android Pay.

Bell ID customers can utilize its Token Service Provider (TSP) software to enable and secure near field communication (NFC) payments functionality on Android phones.

Android Pay is a mobile payment solution that offers people simplicity and security when paying for things with their Android devices. Bell ID’s TSP technology will secure Android Pay transactions via tokenization*.

"Mobile payments is a big priority for Google and we're working to support a wide range of issuers to make Android Pay available to everyone," says Pali Bhat, Senior Director, Product Management, Google, "Bell ID's integration takes us one step further in this direction.”

“A lot of our customers are keen to integrate with Android Pay and this support enables us to answer this demand,” adds Dr. Martin Scott, senior vice president and general manager of the Rambus Cryptography Research division. “With this relationship in place, Bell ID is now one of the few solution providers that can help banks to reach their full customer base, regardless of the smartphone they own. Bell ID does this by supporting the vast majority of OEM wallet, mobile operating system and secure element combinations. 2016 is going to be the biggest year yet and we're excited to be supporting the future of payments.”

Bell ID offers one software platform for issuing banks, processors and payment schemes to support mobile NFC payments. EMV® card credentials can be loaded and managed on a mobile device or in the cloud, using host card emulation (HCE). The solution is backed by a comprehensive EMVCo tokenization module that removes vulnerable card data from the payment network.
