Netsize, the world's leading operator billing platform, achieves PCI DSS certification
MEUDON, France --(Business Wire)--
Netsize, a Gemalto (News - Alert) company, has achieved PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry
& Data Security Scheme) certification, extending the capabilities of its
payment platform beyond operator billing to allow end user credit card
details to be securely stored and thereby facilitate convenient,
immediate transactions. Mobile and digital content providers will now be
able to offer consumers an even wider range of secure payment options,
including higher transaction limits, to a potential market of two
billion consumers and three billion devices.
The Netsize payment platform already enables content providers to
connect directly to the billing platforms of 160 mobile network
operators in over 50 different countries, supporting seamless and
efficient payments directly from a handset for purchases of apps, music,
images and videos. By meeting the stringent requirements of the globally
recognized PCI (News - Alert) DSS standard, Netsize delivers yet more flexibility to
this mobile payment ecosystem, with the same high standards in security
that the company has been known to provide. In particular, the new
certification enables higher transaction limits, which enables faster
time-to-market for a host of premium mobile services.
To meet the demands of PCI DSS, Netsize has developed a new
infrastructure that includes a dedicated server, network and encryption
engine to store, process and transmit the credit cards numbers.
"The Netsize mobile payment platform offers an unrivaled gateway to
the vast and rapidly growing global market for digital services and
content on handheld devices, which generated sales worth �1 billion
during 2012," said Fr�d�ric Deman, General Manager of Netsize. "The
addition of PCI DSS certification for secure and seamless credit card
payments represents yet another leap forward in terms of the commercial
opportunities available to merchants using Netsize solutions."
