Thames Technology has announced a strategic partnership with Ellipse to offer dynamic security code technology

Thames Technology, a provider of payment solutions, has announced a strategic partnership with Ellipse World, Inc. (Ellipse), a Los Angeles-based innovative FinTech company, to offer an additional layer of advanced protection for its banking cards.

The collaboration enables Thames Technology to integrate Ellipse’s EVC® battery-free dynamic security code technology into its payment card offerings. These cards incorporate the EVC All-In-One™, the newest generation EMV micromodule (commonly referred to as a card chip) with a built-in screen displaying dynamic security codes (also known as dynamic CVV, CVV2, CVC, or CSC) for banking security.

By integrating Ellipse’s dynamic security code solution (EVC), the risk of fraudulent transactions is minimised.

Ellipse’s battery-free EMV module, with a mini-digital CVV display on the back of the card, provides a new security code for each card-present transaction. The cardholder can also initiate the code change on demand through a mobile app as needed.

The technology ensures that if the card details and CVV were fraudulently copied, the security code would have changed by the time someone tries to make a transaction. This helps to reduce card-not-present (CNP) fraud and false declines.

Consequently, using the card chip is poised to increase both in-store and online transaction volumes.

Commenting on the partnership, Che Colford, general manager at Thames Technology, stated, “We are excited about our collaboration with Ellipse, a partnership that underscores our dedication to staying at the forefront of security innovation. By offering EVC dynamic card security technology, we equip banks and other financial institutions with a powerful tool that sets them apart from the competition, assisting their customers in protecting their financial transactions. This is sure to offer customers extra peace of mind and deliver a wow-factor, ensuring that the card becomes top of wallet for all payment transactions. ”

Echoing the sentiment, Arnaud Jullien, EVP of strategy & sales EMEA & APAC at Ellipse, said: “Ellipse is proud to partner with Thames Technology to propel advancements in the payment industry. EVC technology is shifting the future of payment card use, and our mission is to help Thames Technology in delivering optimal services to its clients. By providing financial institutions with EVC cards, Thames Technology is leading the way into a future where payments are universally seamless, simple, and secure.”

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.
