Independent e-security solutions provider Cryptomathic has joined the Smart Card Alliance and its recently launched cross-industry group, the EMV Migration Forum, where the company will support efforts to drive adoption of secure chip-based technologies in the U.S.
"We are very excited to join both the SCA and EMV Migration Forum simultaneously," said Matt Landrock, CEO of Cryptomathic's U.S. office. "The EMV Migration Forum, due to our ongoing commitment to the successful EMV implementation, and the SCA, due to our sustained enthusiasm for innovative chip card technologies and, in particular, because of our experience in the mobile payments space."
To the forum's efforts, Cryptomathic will contribute its knowledge in the field of secure chip data security and integrity and in the deployment and management of EMV payments. Within the SCA, Cryptomathic will concentrate on mobility in payments.
"It is a critical time for EMV deployment within the U.S. and we are delighted to welcome Cryptomathic to our membership," said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director of SCA. "Its knowledge and longstanding involvement in the development of EMV security globally and contributions to the mobile payments space will be of huge value to our forum's discussions and output."
