Helixion is pleased to announce that it is licensing INSIDE Secure’s award-winning MatrixSSE product. This will enable Helixion to further enhance the security of its lok-MPL platform for HCE Payments – which provides support for American Express, MasterCard and Visa payments – by protecting payment credentials on mobile devices.

INSIDE Secure’s MatrixSSE provides breakthrough security to the whole mobile app; using Application Protection & Dynamic WhiteBox cryptography technologies to protect sensitive payment credentials and tokenized data.

Helixion’s lok-MPL platform – which has achieved Visa Ready status – encapsulates Helixion’s contactless expertise across payment, access, loyalty, transit and ticketing. lok-MPL allows secure contactless services to be easily integrated into an existing mobile application or enables a new application to be created whether it is based on secure element or Host Card Emulation technologies.

“It’s satisfying to see companies like Helixion providing highly secure HCE payment solutions, knowing this is just the tip of the iceberg for real world HCE deployments leveraging INSIDE’s MatrixSSE,” said Martin Bergenwall, EVP – Mobile Security Division of INSIDE Secure.  “With a full range of security solutions and unmatched expertise, INSIDE Secure is uniquely positioned to help payment schemes and card issuers to secure their mobile banking and payment transactions by offering Embedded Hardware and Software Secure Element solutions.”
