Worldline [Euronext: WLN], the European leader in the payment and transactional services industry, has become the first player to be end-to-end Visa-certified to run in-house its Cloud-based Payments solution. This solution enables Issuers to provide their clients with Visa payWave on their Android mobile NFC phones with embedded HCE (Host Card Emulation) technology. These highly secured transactions will be accepted on all Visa enabled contactless terminals around the world. Thanks to this Visa certification, Worldline is differentiating itself from its competitors by a particularly high degree of security.
