Worldline integrates A3BC biometric digital identification and data storage protocol
Technology partner Worldline has announced a new partnership with French fintech startup A3BC (Anything Anywhere Anytime Biometric Connection) to provide contactless fingerprint authentication through users’ mobile phones.
As part of this new collaboration, A3BC’s biometric digital identification and data storage protocol technologies will be integrated into the Worldline authentication platform.
“We first met Worldline in March 2020 and we are proud to win a special award at the third e-Payments Challenge by Worldline last September,” commented Dinesh Ujoodah, CEO and co-founder of A3BC.
“The friendliness and motivation of the team is what really stood out for us. We are proud to work with one of the largest European payment processors to provide even more security in digital transactions, ”Ujoodah added.
The move not only improves the fingerprint recognition authentication options of the Worldline platform, but also improves its security features, according to the announcement.
Thanks to patented technology, all biometric data collected from users will now be stored separately from the mobile device used to capture them, thus securing online payment and transactions in accordance with PSD2 and SCA.
“Fraud is on the rise as a result of the pandemic, as a recent EY investigation shows. This is why our work with A3BC is so important, ”explained Claire Deprez-Pipon, Global Product Manager for Authentication Services at Worldline.
“We are now able to add a new layer of frictionless security to Worldline Trusted Authentication and other Worldline solutions. Plus, it opens new doors to facilitate an even better customer experience and authentication from any device, ”added Deprez-Pipon.
The combination of the two firms’ technologies will therefore make it possible to protect mobile phones from intrusions by using two-factor authentication (2FA), based on possession of the smartphone and biometrics.
The new solution would have been designed, built and patented to operate on Zero Trust principles.
