Innovative payment solutions
Nowadays, both people and objects are more and more connected, more and more mobile. In a world where many actions, interactions and information are recorded and shared, strong, innovative solutions are vital to protect data, transactions and identities.
Payment security is a high-stakes issue, which is very sensitive to changes in patterns of use and to the dematerialisation of technologies. A payment method is regarded as secure if it is based on at least two of the following principles: what I am (biometrics), what I know (PIN code) and what I have (smartcard, smartphone, etc.). Websites, retailers and banks are all working non-stop to develop solutions that will protect their clients and safeguard their data at every step of the payment process, with as little inconvenience as possible.
Up until now, innovative payment, identification and mobility solutions have been produced primarily by specialised companies, leading industrial organisations and "pure players". Today, the secure payment industry is following in the footsteps of the telecommunications and retail sectors in that breakthroughs are also being made by startups, which are much more flexible and often operate as think tanks.
Thanks to their tremendous innovative potential and their ability to stay a step ahead of the latest trends and to anticipate the expectations of private and professional users alike, startups have achieved a very strong position in this market segment! CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS will give them a unique opportunity to showcase and promote their solutions alongside other players in the industry, at an event where new behaviours and trends are invented, discovered and decoded.
Startups play a key role in the innovation and progress that is shaking up traditional markets. Given this trend, CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS aims to encourage innovation and promote startups through the STARTUP CHALLENGE.
"Winning the STARTUP CHALLENGE at CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS 2014 was a pivotal moment for us a company. Being recognised in the payments industry as a company who was bringing innovation and an exciting in-demand product to the payments industry by CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS and their panel of judges, brought us fantastic PR and interest from many of our current and prospect partners," Georgina Nelson, CEO & Founder, truRating.
