MatchMove Receives ‘Bank Grade’ Security Certification
Singapore, 1 April 2014– Leading online entertainment company, MatchMove today announced it received PCI-DSS 2.0 certification for its Mobile-first E-wallet, the Matchmove Wallet.
The PCI-DSS standard is an information security standard that governs how organizations that handle payment cardholder information should protect that data. The wide-ranging standard includes criteria on how to create and secure the network, data storage and security policies. PCI-DSS 2.0 governs the entire MatchMove Wallet application, infrastructure, services as well as its top up options such as Internet, ATM and Mobile banking.
“MatchMove is committed in providing the highest level of security to customers of our newest product, the MatchMove Wallet. This minimizes the likelihood of data compromise and criminal cyber attacks. Our teams worked hard on this certification so that users will feel safe that the virtual cards they use in the MatchMove wallet are secure”, stated Mr. HH Leow, COO of MatchMove.
Paladion Networks a leading provider of information risk management in the region, successfully guided Matchmove to achieve PCI-DSS certification.
“MatchMove has established itself as a disruptive innovator in games, virtual economy and social networking. Implementation of the Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards for an organization of this stature required clarity of thought and approach from this young and very dynamic organization. We are glad to have partnered with MatchMove in assisting them in its endeavor to make their customer transactions secure”, stated Mr. Firosh Ummer, COO, Middle East Operations for Paladion Networks
The unique structure of the MatchMove Wallet addresses a major concern for online shopping, namely, security. By virtue of being a pre-paid e-wallet system that utilises existing security features such as one-time pin authentication found only on credit cards, the MatchMove Wallet essentially protects users from unauthorized usage or from overspending. It also ensures that the user’s source of funds (credit card, bank account, etc) is kept confidential and never revealed to third party online merchants.
Additionally, the MatchMove Wallet is created mobile-first to provide the best user experience on mobile devices. The exponential growth of mobile usage and mobile data penetration meant that a first-rate mobile experience was essential to capturing users in the emerging markets such as Vietnam, India, Thailand and Indonesia.
