Worldline and A3BC team up for secure and touchless authentication
By Megha Bhattacharya
Worldline is partnering up with A3BC (Anything Anywhere Anytime Biometric Connection), a French FinTech venture that provides biometric digital ID and data storage protocol, to combine their patented solution with Worldline’s Authentication. The combined technologies are protecting mobile phones from intrusion by leveraging two-factor authentication (2FA): possession of the smartphone and inherence (biometric).
Dinesh Ujoodah, CEO & Co-founder of A3BC: ‘We first met with Worldline in March 2020, and we were proud to win a special award during the third e-Payments Challenge by Worldline last September. The kindness and the motivation of the team is what really struck us. We are proud to be working with one of the biggest European payment processors to provide even more security when it comes to digital transactions.’
Recently, Worldline announced the signing of a binding agreement for the acquisition of 80% of Axepta Italy, the merchant acquiring entity of BNL banking group in Italy. As part of the transaction, the company will enter into a long-term commercial partnership with BNL aiming to leverage its strong banking network as a key commercial channel in order to distribute Worldline’s and Axepta Italy’s payment product and services.
‘Fraud is on the rise due to the pandemic, as a recent survey by EY shows. That is why our work with A3BC is so important’, says Claire Deprez-Pipon, Global Product Manager Authentication Services at Worldline. ‘We are now able to add a new layer of security with no friction into Worldline Trusted Authentication and other solutions of Worldline. In addition, it opens new doors to facilitate an even better customer experience and authentication from any devices.’
