Securing electronic transactions based on a trusted infrastructure.
Securing your e-transactions
When making an e-transaction, ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of that transaction is a vitally important issue. Securing payments – effectively a transaction in its own right – is also highly sensitive. In case of fraud, companies and financial institutions can suffer significant losses in terms of damaged reputations and the theft of sensitive data as well as financial loss. That is why securing transactions demands efficient, reliable and flexible security solutions, fully integrated into information systems and payment systems, in compliance with industry standards.
