#Money2020 – Singapore Payments Provider Selects whiteCryption for Mobile Payment App Shielding

LAS VEGAS–()–Money 20/20 – Intertrust Technologies Corporation announced today that NETS, a leading payment solutions provider based in Singapore, has selected Intertrust’s award-winning whiteCryption® Application Shielding technology to protect its mobile payment applications.

NETS is a leading payments company in Singapore and operates Singapore’s national PIN debit scheme as well as the largest acceptance infrastructure in the country located at major retailers, food courts, hawker centres, convenience stores, and supermarkets.

NETS’ nationwide acceptance infrastructure of 100,000 acceptance points accepts both card and digital payments from customers of participating banks DBS Bank, Maybank, HSBC Bank, OCBC Bank, Standard Chartered Bank, and UOB. The network also accepts UnionPay and BCA cards, and includes 35,000 Unified Point-of-Sale (Unified POS) terminals and 30,000 QR acceptance points.

NETS will use whiteCryption’s application shielding technology to protect sensitive components of its member banks’ Android and iOS payment apps from malicious attacks.

“As consumers’ lives revolve around their smart devices, the phone has now become a device for payments. That has hastened the development of payment apps such as our NETSPay app. At the same time, we need to ensure that our app adheres to the highest security standards to protect our customers’ financial information,” said Vincent Low, Chief Information Officer at NETS. “After a long evaluation process, we chose whiteCryption as it was the best in class.”

whiteCryption offers leading banks and credit card companies solutions that secure their mobile applications. Code Protection™is a comprehensive tool for hardening modern software applications on multiple platforms. Secure Key Box™ is a white box crypto software library that protects cryptographic algorithms at all times.

“Payment apps are a frontline venue for hackers. Without proper security technology applied in the app itself, consumers will not trust their software and will forgo the tremendous convenience that mobile financial apps provide,” said Bill Horne, general manager, Intertrust Secure Systems. “We built whiteCryption application shielding technology to raise the security bar by protecting the executable code in a mobile app – we are delighted to partner with NETS to secure their apps and enhance the value they deliver.”
