ValidSoft has been nominated for its SMART™ (Secure Mobile Architecture for Real-time Transactions) telecommunications-based technology. This offers a multi-factor, multi-layer authentication solution designed to verify and authenticate transactions on mobile devices. The architecture is designed to protect transactions regardless of application type, the mobile device being used and the underlying mobile network technology. SMART™ can protect transactions for M-banking, mobile wallets and P2P payments, and because of its flexibility, is suitable for both feature and smart-phone technology.

Pat Carroll, CEO of ValidSoft, said: "As the use of smart phones for banking and payments is growing at a rate of 52.7% per year, security is paramount because fraud will certainly draw on the vulnerabilities of this new channel. Telecommunications – and specifically a mobile-based solution – is key to combatting the threat of fraud and ValidSoft is, we believe, uniquely positioned to bring the power of that sector to the world of security to create innovative solutions. ValidSoft is quite pleased by being shortlisted."

On February 5, ValidSoft announced that its Secure Mobile Architecture for Real-time Transactions (SMART™) has been selected to be an integral element in the recently announced comprehensive payment acceptance service solution to be provided by Spindle, Inc., a leading US-provider of mobile payments solutions.
