FortressPay has leveraged the AWS ISV modernization program to bring to market their Payment Identity Platform, which integrates their global issuing and acquiring capabilities with a frictionless biometric checkout experience.

FortressPay’s vision is to eliminate friendly and attack payment fraud with frictionless customer experience using biometrics. Mobile device payments are approaching over 65% of all credit card transactions globally. People use a selfie to unlock their phones multiple times a day, making a payment should be no different,” said Alessandro Chiarini CEO of FortressPay.

“By leveraging FortressPay, merchants can lower their payment processing fees by reducing chargebacks to nearly zero, while maintaining a seamless checkout experience for its customers. FortressPay leverages government and border control accuracy level facial biometric technologies, versus on-device biometrics, to ensure the most stringent security and be mobile carrier agnostic,” added Chiarini.

“Major card brands like Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express are implementing biometrics to curtail fraud, as supported by the American Express announcement of the implementation of biometrics in Safe Key.”, shared Felix Torres Ostolaza, COO of FortressPay, “These efforts support our vision and the ongoing efforts of the payment ecosystem to curtail credit card fraud.

FortressPay worked with SoftwareOne to optimize security and scalability. FortressPay’s concept of the Payment Identity platform and their challenge to our engineering team to provide the necessary redundancy and compliance to ensure the platform was enterprise ready, was an exciting and challenging project for SoftwareOne.”, stated Rodrigo Eleoterio, SoftwareONE, Global Partner Channel Business Lead.
