Partnership launches security technology for Virtual Card Transmission
London 30th March 2016: Invapay, the leading provider of B2B payment technology and Regify, the trusted e-communications service provider, today announced a partnership that will see Regify’s unique Regimail solution integrated into Invapay’s Global Master Merchant Payments platform. This new technology will be used to transmit Virtual Card Numbers in a verifiable way to merchants for processing through their own Merchant Terminals.
Regimail ensures that Virtual Cards are kept secure when in transmission to any supplier/merchant anywhere in the world. Most similar systems do not use encrypted and verifiable email technology which means emails containing Virtual Card Numbers are open to interception and misuse or fraud. This initiative provides the fundamental technology required for Global Banks and Card Schemes who now wish to offer this facility to their customers.
The combination of the Invapay platform and the Regifytechnology will make it safer and easier for clients to use the service and remain PCI-DSS compliant at the same time.
Sid Vasili, Invapay’s CEO and founder said “We have launched the first worldwide application of this technology which confirms Invapay's dedication to protect card holders and their suppliers. Regify shares our belief in developing the most effective technology available and uses state-of-the-art cryptography for security. Cybersecurity is one of the hottest topics in fintech right now.”
Realising the scale of damage that data breaches cause, four banking industry giants (JP Morgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup and Wells Fargo) collectively spend $1.5 billion each year on cybersecurity. The economic cost of a breach in security can be crippling for any organisation. A recent report estimated that the cost of a data breach increased by 11% in 2015.
“We can now offer a cost-effective solution for financial institutions looking to protect themselves and their customers from this growing threat,” said Vasili.
Kurt Kammerer, Regify’s CEO and co-founder explains: “Our partnership with Invapay is built on their proven track record of providing secure, compliant and reliable financial services to merchants globally. We see this partnership as enabling the banks and card schemesto expand their offering to buyers and merchants.”
The Regify / Invapay service is ready for commercial launch and implementation is currently under discussion with a number of global banks and card schemes. This solution is the essential bedrock for launching a new type of global credit card payment service.
