SAN FRANCISCO, May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ValidSoft ( www.validsoft.com), a global supplier of advanced telecommunications-based fraud prevention, authentication and transaction verification solutions, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Elephant Talk Communications Corp.

FinovateSpring 2013 takes place in San Francisco on May 14 and 15 and aims to showcase the best innovations in financial and banking technology from a mixture of both leading established companies and startups. The event's signature, live demonstration-only format will see over 60 companies each having 7 minutes on stage to demonstrate their latest innovations. The event attracts a high-calibre audience that includes leading financial executives, venture capitalists, press, industry analysts, bloggers, and fintech entrepreneurs looking to foresee future trends and technologies within the financial services and payments industry.

As one of the very few security vendors chosen to participate this year, ValidSoft will be showcasing a unique, low-friction means of securing a mobile wallet application through its SMART™ platform. Its demonstration is on 15 May at around 2pm (PDT) and will be streamed through the Finovate website for those who can't attend.

CEO of ValidSoft, Pat Carroll , comments : "Innovation continues to develop at a rapid pace across all forms of mobile payments, and use of smart-phones for banking and payments is growing at a yearly rate of nearly 53%. (World Payments Report 2012: "Analysts believe the number of payments using mobile devices could grow by 52.7% a year to reach 17bn in 2013".) As a result, the need for a secure and yet frictionless means of verifying and authenticating transactions becomes paramount, both to combat fraud while at the same time safeguarding the privacy of consumers."

"If analyst predictions on the growth of mobile payments are to be realized, banks and mobile payment providers need to take a holistic approach to security and think about including it 'by design', rather than as a point solution. Telecommunications – and specifically a mobile-based solution – is key to combating the threat, and ValidSoft is uniquely positioned to bring the power of mobile-centric technology to the world of mobile banking and payments."
