BlackBerry teams up with EnStream for mobile payments 

Under the agreement, BlackBerry’s infrastructure will enable financial institutions and mobile operators to secure sensitive payment card credentials into any near field communication smartphones. By supporting mobile payments, BlackBerry reinforces its commitment to help enterprise customers deploy secure mobile solutions.

“BlackBerry has proven through our decades of experience in enterprise mobility that we have the ideal infrastructure and security capabilities to protect users’ data when new capabilities such as mobile payments emerge,” said John Sims, president, Global Enterprise Services, BlackBerry.

“Together with EnStream and partners like them around the world, BlackBerry can better reach customers and provide a complete solution for banks with opportunities in the mobile payments space.”

To provide the platform, BlackBerry has to protect the data associated with financial transactions, comply with regulations, and earn PCI, Visa and MasterCard certifications.

“Safe and secure digital transactions are the backbone of our network and mobile payment ecosystem, and BlackBerry’s involvement in the payment chain will help build trust in Canada and abroad.” said Nicolas Dinh, VP, Emerging Payments, MasterCard.

Given its requirements for security, the mobile payments space is a focus area for BlackBerry.
