Ensuring trust in payment systems

The emergence of alternative payment systems and methods, such as smartphones and tablets, poses new risks and threats when used as payment terminals, impacting the market as a whole and its growth if the necessary defence mechanisms are not in place.

In reaction, industry standards were created, mandating the usage of Software Protection Mechanisms such as code obfuscation and white-box cryptography to protect mobile payment applications at rest and at runtime.

Quarks AppShield allows payment vendors to create their payment application  whilst complying with the latest standards in use by providing a robust and EMVCo-evaluated Software Protection Tool.

Securing retail banking

Retail banking is facing nowadays a much more significant threat:

  • Malware is using more advanced evasion techniques every day.
  • Attackers are now more organized than before, with some even benefiting from the support of nation-states.
  • The attack surface and exposition to digital risk are also more expansive in this digital era than a decade ago, with mobile applications and websites for each application.

Retail banking face as well an intense regulatory and compliance landscape when it comes to security. While legislative concerns are territorially based, some legislation such as the GDPR has a global footprint due to its breadth. Compliance with these regulations and standards means implementing the necessary processes and technological solutions.

Quarks Flow provides security personnel with a solution to orchestrate several analysis methods to look for malware. Its versatility allows to use it either in a preventive fashion, used as an education scheme to educate employees or as a solution to recover from an incident.
