COLOMBES, France - Thursday, October 9th 2014 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE) -- Oberthur Technologies (OT), a world leader in digital security solutions for the mobility space, today announced that it is launching the first payment card integrating dynamic Card Verification Value/Code (dCVV/dCVC) technology from NagraID Security (NIDS) in order to secure online transactions.

To address this growing concern for issuers, e-merchants and cardholders, OT is launching the first payment card integrating dCVV/d ... Read more »
