Real-time Payments and How to Secure Them

In today’s digital, on-demand world, we have instant access to information, products and services. Digitization and digitalization has driven this change, and we are now accustomed to almost instant payments via cards, web services and apps. The development of instantaneous payments between bank accounts is therefore a natural evolution.

Securing Real-time Payments with Payment Account Tokenization

Real-time payments (RTP) have been proliferating globally since 1973, increasingly driven by the need for payments clearing to keep pace with today’s on-demand digital world. The success of anti-fraud measures like EMV® chip, EMV® 3-D Secure and payment tokenization to mitigate card-present and -not present fraud in-store and online, has caused fraudsters to look elsewhere [...]

Mobile Scan-and-Go Technology

Brick-and-mortar merchants are in the midst of a period of unprecedented disruption. Long-term structural trends mean that retailers must address decreasing revenues and escalating costs, while evolving the in-store experience to meet the demands of the connected consumer. For this reason, transformative technologies such as mobile scan-and-go solutions are coming to the fore, with deployments across [...]

Do Superconducting Processors Really Need Cryogenic Memories? The Case for Cold DRAM

Cryogenic, superconducting digital processors offer the promise of greatly reduced operating power for server-class computing systems. This is due to the exceptionally low energy per operation of Single Flux Quantum circuits built from Josephson junction devices operating at the temperature of 4 Kelvin. Unfortunately, no suitable same-temperature memory technology yet exists to complement these SFQ [...]

(Smart) Watch this Space

The development of smart devices and the increasing possibilities of its features has lead to a search for a new frontier for technology. The idea of wearable technology has existed in science fiction and other speculative fiction, but only recently has wearable technology became a reality this decade with the introduction of wearables such as [...]

Tokenization Beyond Payments

Tokenization is a process by which sensitive data is replaced with unique identification credentials that retain all essential information about the data without exposing said sensitive data to attacks. While traditional payment methods pass critical identification information through several points, tokenization minimizes the amount of data a business needs to keep on hand. Becoming popular [...]

Monetizing Semiconductors: From Silicon to Service

Over the past five years, the semiconductor industry has faced a number of complex challenges. These include increased development costs, eroded ASPs, market saturation and heightened, yet unsustainable M&A activity. As 2018 begins, the semiconductor industry continues to seek a return to stability and organic growth within the parameters of a new business paradigm that [...]
