Beating off stiff competition from five other companies, ValidSoft has been recognized for its SMART™ (Secure Mobile Architecture for Real-time Transactions) telecommunications-based technology which offers a multi-factor, multi-layer authentication solution designed to verify and authenticate transactions on mobile devices. SMART can protect transactions for M-banking, mobile wallets and P2P payments, and because of its flexibility, is custom designed for both feature and smart-phone technology. The Florin 2013 jury members are Gerard de Moura, Galitt, EPCA representative (chairman); Dave Birch, Consult Hyperion, Director; Mark Buitenhek, ING, Global Head of Payments & Cash Management; Bo Harald, Tieto, Head of Executive Advisors and, Javier Santamaria Navarette - Santander, Subdirector General.

"The Florin Award aims at recognizing genuine innovation in the payment industry," said Gerard de Moura, Chairman of the Florin jury and Managing Director of Galitt. "Our very demanding jury has selected SMART among many other great innovations, valuating the combination of multiple factors to improve the level of authentication while keeping both the enrolment and process easy and convenient for end-users. We all agree ValidSoft is paving the way for secure mobile transactions."

Commenting on the award win, Pat Carroll, CEO of ValidSoft, said: "we believe this prestigious award confirms ValidSoft as leader in the fraud prevention industry.  As the use of smartphones for banking and payments is growing at a rate of nearly 53% per year, security and consumer privacy are paramount because fraud will certainly draw on the vulnerabilities of this new channel. Telecommunication – specifically a mobile-based solution – is key to combatting the threat of fraud. ValidSoft is uniquely positioned to bring the power of that sector to the world of security to create innovative solutions. There is a terrific opportunity to shape this new landscape and ValidSoft is pleased to be recognised as one of the key players at the core of this industry shift."
