Paidy selects V-Key to secure its App-based instant post-pay credit service for Japanese Consumers

Singapore, 13 November, 2018 –
  
As Paidy’s instant post-pay credit service expands to accommodate bigger merchants, offline payment transactions and new value-added financial services, allaying current and new consumers’ security concerns remain of paramount importance.
  
With both eyes focused on the future, consumer payment growth trends for in-store, e-commerce and in-app transactions are set to become more inter-mixed and exponential growth of transactions are set to rise accordingly to a wide range of expert sources. Paidy expects their customer base to exceed 11,000,000 accounts by 2020 thus selecting the best-in-class security partner makes perfect sense to facilitate smoother digital consumer shopping experience.
  
Established in 2011, V-Key’s Virtual Operating System (V-OS) helps ensure that users’ sensitive information and transactions remain secured, virtually on any mobile device. V-OS uses advanced cryptographic and cybersecurity protections and complies with standards previously reserved only for expensive hardware solutions. V-OS enables powerful customer experiences that combine high security and ease of use.

Paidy’s Chief Technology Officer, Houston Ross said:

  

“As Paidy expands our consumer payment offerings and merchant touchpoints, ensuring a fast and seamless payment experience remains a clear business growth driver. Selecting a secure and highly functional mobile application security product as we have found in V-Key, gives our team the confidence that we are future-proofing our mobile strategy and ensuring consumer data integrity.”

  

 “V-Key has quietly been working behind the scenes with a number of banks regionally deploying our technology in a number of innovative ways to secure digital identities. We have delivered a trust platform and hope that this fortifies the Paidy Payment App to engender consumer confidence, facilitate greater mobile payment adoption, and herald new financial services for their consumers.”
