Obopay Implements SafeNet Hardware Security Module to Enhance Mobile Payments Security

BALTIMORE—(BUSINESS WIRE)—June 2, 2008— SafeNet, Inc., a global leader in information security, has announced the successful implementation of its hardware security module (HSM) at Obopay, a U.S.-based mobile payment company.

Obopay has selected SafeNets Payment HSM products to provide higher standards of banking security for its customers. Obopay provides person-to-person money transfer, person-to-merchant payment, utility bill payment, prepaid top up and insurance payment services. In this scenario, highly confidential information needs to be encrypted and decrypted between the Obopay platform and the bank platform. SafeNets Payment HSM products address this issue and provide higher performance and security standards.

After the stringent evaluation process we found out that SafeNets HSM provides higher security than its competition. Since it is a hardware box, it is more secure than software encryption. Although the product provides similar security standards to competitors products, in terms of performance SafeNets HSM scored much higher. SafeNet HSM supported 1200 transactions per second (TPS), whereas products from other vendors supported only 20 TPS for the same price, said an Obopay spokesperson. All of this coupled with SafeNets unparalleled technical support, made them a sure winner.

It is very rewarding to see Obopay invest in SafeNets HSM to provide higher banking security to its customers, said René Bastien, payment products manager, SafeNet, Inc. Obopay has invested in a comprehensive solution, allowing them to deliver superior service to their customers.

SafeNet HSMs are a premium product that provides advanced features including direct hardware-to-hardware backup, split user role administration, multi-person authentication and trusted path authentication coupled with proven security and operational deployment experience in some of the largest financial institutions in the world.
