ATMIA has certified the world’s first Next Gen ATM product, following a multi-year global project, involving over 400 companies in 56 countries, to create a new global API App model for ATMs.
“This is a milestone in the actual reinvention of the ATM to integrate ATMs into the mobile-digital world and to set up a new wave of innovation and investment in our industry through this dynamic ecosystem,” commented Mike Lee, CEO of ATMIA, President of the ATM Security Association and Chairperson of the Consortium for Next Gen ATMs.
KLEAR Technologies, Inc., founded in 2013, and headquartered in Las Vegas, has become the first company in the world to attain official Next Gen ATM certification. The certification was awarded for its patented product, SecurPair, which provides for secure authentication of financial transactions by validating device-to-terminal pairing, for example, in cardless ATM transactions, using a QR code. ATM vendors can deploy downloadable software to accommodate acquiring of the transactions, while issuers will have a software development kit (SDK) to add to their mobile app to effect the authentication.
“KLEAR Technologies is thrilled to showcase our patented technology product, ‘SecurPair’, which has been certified by the ATMIA as the very first world-wide Next-Generation certified ATM technology,” said Chad Venables, CTO and creative architect. “We take great pride in presenting a secure way to authenticate and enable touchless, cardless technology when paired with a consumer’s mobile device.”
“Congrats on this great milestone of the 1st Next Gen ATMIA CERTIFIED Level-1A Mobile Device APP, which passed successfully the Next Gen ATMIA Level-1 Certification Process, designed and powered by ATMIA, in partnership with RXL2020,” commented Marcel Ficken, Next Gen Technical Advisor and award-winning International Consultant for two years in a row.
Next Gen ATMIA certified products will be showcased at the association’s upcoming US event in Las Vegas where visitors can view demonstrations at the Next Gen ATMIA booth. The conference “NextGen ATMs – A New Path to a Transformative Future” takes place on June 23 – 25, 2021 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino (https://www.atmia.com/conferences/us/).
“We’re excited about this technology as both a sensible and secure supplement or alternative to NFC and contactless technology,” Venables added, “while continuing to enable everyday consumers the ability to utilize their mobile phones and IOT devices to generate quick, simple, and secure transactions.”
