These technology companies will provide design, development and integration solutions and services to help accelerate the adoption of Zelle at their financial institution clients.
A full list of participating financial institutions can be found on Zelle’s website.
“Our new technology partners empower financial institutions to deploy real-time payments quickly with Zelle – accelerating time-to-market, reducing risk, growing revenues, and controlling costs,” said Ian Macallister, vice president of market strategy at Early Warning Services, parent company of Zelle. “We’re at the forefront of an industry-wide move to faster money movement, and our partner ecosystem expansion adds solutions, services, and expertise which will only accelerate Zelle adoption.”
These new technology partners join some of the leading companies and payment processors –– CO-OP Financial Services, FIS, Fiserv, and Jack Henry & Associates, Inc. –– to provide digital payment solutions for both small and large financial institutions.
Early Warning has developed a suite of passive and active identification and authentication solutions to enable all Zelle Network patners to easily and safely manage real-time payments.
Components of this suite of solutions are now used by four of the top six U.S. banks to secure their mobile banking channels while offering flexibility and improving customer experiences.
A range of capabilities including access to biometrics, pattern recognition, secure messaging, Mobile Network Operator intelligence, device identification, behavioral biometrics and device health can be integrated seamlessly into existing systems to deliver improved security measures..
Technologies from device and mobile risk vendors — InAuth, NuData Security, and Payfone — are all offered as part of the Zelle Risk Services portfolio, which help to ensure safe and secure banking transactions like sending money to a friend.
