Switching & Authorization

Fast. Safe. Secure. Scalable.
Support emerging acceptance with global scale and local compliance

The payments industry is undergoing a disruption – one that’s continuously adding new technologies, payment methods, and regulatory requirements to support customer needs. In this scenario, merchants need the freedom to accept any payment method, enrich transaction with information, process with their provider of choice, and enable higher economic value for consumers, issuers, and themselves.

These acceptance imperatives are driving stateless switching systems to support dynamic flows for encryption/cryptography, tokenization, real-time fraud and risk management, risk- based-authentication (RBA), least-cost-routing, and much more.

Legacy infrastructures of existing switching and authorization systems are unable to support these new requirements. In addition, industry consolidation and M&A activities have led to large enterprises managing multiple switching solutions. This necessitates IT simplification and modernization – replacing, consolidating, or re-engineering switching systems - to avoid operational inefficiencies and unnecessary costs.
