Gemalto’s Trusted Services Management (TSM) data centre in Singapore has achieved MasterCard and Visa certification (view press release). Gemalto customers will now be able to distribute MasterCard and Visa mobile payment services to their end users. The company claims this certification confirms its readiness for supporting banks, mobile operators and other service providers in their NFC deployments across Asia and globally. Gemalto already has TSM centres in the US and France, and the addition of a third centre in a different continent will help the company provide business continuity to its customers with up to 99.9% uptime disaster recovery capabilities with the Platinum-level offer. KDDI in Japan and the IDA-supported consortium in Singapore are some of the new centre’s first customers.
“The TSM data centre in Singapore will provide the highest level of security, while ensuring high availability with 24/7 service,” said Jean-Claude Deturche, Gemalto’s SVP of Mobile Financial Services. “With markets in Asia ready for massive adoption of NFC services, our certified centre in Singapore is ready to serve our customers.”
