Company Details


QSecure is the platform company whose SmartStripeâ„¢ electronic powered credit cards prevent the use of stolen card data without changing retail systems or card holder behavior. QSecure's patented, magnetic media chip and authentication solutions are designed to allow card issuers to deliver solutions to protect card data without requiring changes to the card processing environment. QSecure's initial solution is based on a proprietary chip that is embedded in the magnetic stripe and creates a unique number on the magnetic stripe each time the card is used. The unique number for each transaction is authenticated by the card issuer in real time using QSecure's patented authentication technology.
