Thales issues its first Visa Ready security certification in mobile payments.
Thales’s Information Technology Security Evaluation Facility (ITSEF), a partner of Visa, is the first facility to have carried out the certification of the Antelop Payments HCE mobile payments application as per Visa’s latest security requirements.
With Antelop HCE, card issuers can instantly bring contactless mobile payments to their customers, leveraging the existing NFC point of sale terminals. The application evaluated by Thales guarantees a very high level of security to its users.
Thanks to the “Visa Ready” status, Visa ensures that products and services developed and deployed by technology and security providers meet its security requirements.
To meet the growing demand from customers around the world, Thales draws on a dedicated team of software security experts and an unmatched set of technical equipment.
