n partnership with First Tech ,

I a global technology company ,

Thales has announced it has helped venture , capital-backed financial service provider , SWAP , launch its modern digital payment infrastructure . With Thales ’ cloud-based payment transaction security solution , SWAP will deliver financial infrastructure technologies faster and more effectively to its Banking-as-a-Service customers .
SWAP , a venture capital-backed financial service provider , was founded in 2018 to support FinTech and service providers in the adoption of financial technology in response to demand across all sectors – from marketplaces to ride-sharing – for more reliable transaction processing and expanded financial and payment services .
However , company expansion and customer satisfaction relied on in-built compliance with Payment Card Industry Data Standards ( PCI DSS ). As a startup , SWAP wasn ’ t able to implement the entire technological infrastructure needed : a secure room would have slowed and complicated the launch process and SWAP needed to be able to provide accelerated , scalable , certified access to the market . First Tech and Thales ’ solution grants SWAP the scalability and PCI certification it needs to grow as its customers do .
First Tech ’ s hosted payShield Hardware Security Module ( HSM ) offers SWAP a cloud-based service with HSM off-premises . Thales ’ market-leading HSMs are highly scalable , providing the flexibility and agility needed to support SWAP in its future growth .
