Cardtek USA Unveils New Partnerships for a Smarter and Safer Mobile Payments World in the U.S.

Through its parent and sister companies, Cardtek USA is developing groundbreaking app softwares, infrastructures to increase data safety, and offering cloud-based mobile service solutions for the increasing demand for smart devices

CHICAGO, February 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --  Cardtek USA [http://www.cardtek.com ], one of the leading software developers for financial transactions and providers of EMV migration solutions, is proud to announce its sister company, Phaymobile's memberships to "Samsung Enterprise Alliance Program" and "Tizen Association Partner Program." With its extensive Embedded Secure Element experience, Phaymobile will be developing the data software of Samsung smartphones and contributing to the development of Tizen Operating System (OS) to monitor and provide maximum safety for Samsung smartphones worldwide. Joining the company-wide accomplishments , the American division of Cardtek Group, Cardtek USA will be offering a smarter and safer infrastructure for mobile payment users with the cloud-based mobile service solution HCExpert product.

With the recent market trends and developments, especially in the Near Field Communications (NFC) front, concepts such as Host Card Emulation (HCE) and tokenization have been introduced. HCE will be used to eliminate the need for secure elements in mobile phones for storing card credentials, which will eventually put an end to the constant fear of becoming a data breach victim.

"This is revolutionary for the NFC market," said Gokhan Inonu, President, Cardtek USA. "When compared to the standard Secure Element Platform, HCE is not only a lower cost option, but it's also easy to install. This game changing newcomer is expected to give the big push to the NFC solutions, increasing user numbers, and eventually, e-commerce sales to $414 billion by 2018 in the U.S., according to Forrester Research. We are excited to be a part of this revolutionary movement as one of the leading developers."
