Netcetera and DPG: partnering to balance security and customer experience

Digital Payments Group (DPG), a market-leading Payments Issuing Processor, is partnering with Netcetera, an international expert in secure digital payments. This partnership will enable global DPG banking customers to benefit from Netcetera’s 3-D Secure, regulatory-compliant, reliable, and up-to-date payment platform services.

Netcetera’s multi-client 3-D Secure Issuer Service is built around a state-of-the-art Access Control Server (ACS), certified with all major card networks. It is a Payment Service Directive (PSD2) ready solution which supports the regulator’s Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) requirement. Being certified with the latest EMV® 3DS protocols 2.1 and 2.2 enables the best use of the latest security improvements. In addition, Netcetera ACS is the first worldwide certified with the EMV® 3-D Secure 2.3.1 protocol. The Company’s Access control server stands behind and promotes secure and frictionless transaction authentication worldwide. Supported with Netcetera’s ACS, DPG will be able to provide its bank customers with a one-click mobile app (OOB), one-time passcode (OTP), and risk-based authentication (RBA) use cases for seamless user authentication during payment.

Founded in 2014, DPG offers a wide range of payment solutions to issuing banks, built on a homegrown PCI DSS-compliant platform certified by Mastercard and Diners Club International to issue prepaid and debit products.

“DPG processes millions of transactions every day for our issuing bank clients and their global customers,” said DPG Chief Technology Officer (CTO), Stewart Sime. “The addition of Netcetera’s 3DS offering brings industry-leading authentication technology to enhance security and compliance without impacting the end-user experience.”

Benoit Ouinas, Netcetera Head of Sales for Western and Northern Europe, said: “Our 3DS and ACS services are well-established across Europe and UK, and this partnership will help us to increase that footprint further among issuers. DPG will be an important ally in the ongoing journey to drive 3DS adoption and ultimately enhance payments with excellent customer experience.

The mission of the two companies is to cultivate progress in digital payments by offering solutions that enable best-in-class customer experience.
