Cryptomathic has joined the industry association Smart Card Alliance (SCA) as well as SCA’s recently launched cross-industry group, the Europay, MasterCard and Visa (EMV) Migration Forum, to support both bodies’ efforts to drive adoption of secure chip-based technologies in the US.
The electronic security (e-security) solutions provider added that it intends to contribute its global knowledge of enhancing the security and integrity of data on secure chip technology and, more specifically, the deployment and management of EMV payments.

“It is a critical time for EMV deployment within the US and we are delighted to welcome Cryptomathic to our membership,” said Randy Vanderhoof, executive director at SCA.
