TORONTO—(Feb 19, 2020)
B2 Payment Solutions Inc. (B2), an organization providing best-in-class products and services for the payment industry, announced today that the company is partnering with Cryptomathic Group which includes both Cryptomathic, the global specialist in secure server and payments solutions; and Aconite Technology, a leading supplier of secure EMV card payment solutions.
“We are pleased to be a new solution partner for the Cryptomathic Group and expand upon our comprehensive product offerings for our customers,” said Bruce Murray, President of B2. “Combining our expertise and adding the Cryptomathic Group products to our portfolio supports our commitment to innovation and our strategy to provide our customers with market-leading solutions for secure payment technologies including EMV, Contactless and Mobile.”
Under the agreement, B2 will have the ability to resell the full suite of Cryptomathic and Aconite products, including:
• Crypto Key Management System (CKMS), which delivers banking-grade key lifecycle management for virtually any application throughout a business from a single platform. As a centralized key management system, the primary task of CKMS is to provide lifecycle management of cryptographic keys. This includes all the functions related to importing, generating, exporting and renewing keys, as well as enforcing their correct usage.
• Aconite EMV® Transaction Manager (ETM), which adds PCI-certified, feature-rich EMV capability to an existing magstripe authorization system without the need for extensive modifications or an expensive upgrade. ETM represents a low risk, cost-effective route to in-house EMV processing capability that is simple to integrate and preserves investment in existing systems.
• Aconite PIN Manager, a comprehensive solution that offers electronic capture and distribution of PINs through digital channels including web and mobile banking, SMS and IVR – these are increasingly used by banks and card issuers to communicate with customers. PIN Manager also supports secure PIN storage, PIN generation and PIN verification.
“B2 is an excellent solutions partner for the Cryptomathic Group,” said Matt Landrock, Executive Vice President of the Cryptomathic Group. “They bring extensive hands-on expertise and service excellence to meet the demanding business and technology needs of their customers, in particular as companies are transitioning to EMV and contactless, or (if they have already migrated to EMV and contactless) are looking to advance their processing platforms for the long term. We look forward to delivering solutions through this experienced group of experts.”
As the industry migrates to EMV, contactless and mobile payment infrastructures, B2 helps customers with a smooth transition and implementation. With a proven and unique framework, B2 has the ability to understand customer needs and offer creative, tailored solutions that match any business or strategic objective. Adding Cryptomathic Group’s products to B2’s existing products and services portfolio – including contact, contactless, and mobile test card sets; software development; as well as consulting services; through the B2 university instructor-led training, as well as e-learning modules – continues to enhance B2’s full range of secure payment technology offerings.
