The Florin Awards Europe 2017 – Best Secure Transaction Solutions

Security has become top priority in the transaction space. We actually are in a constant battle to ‘smart-out’ elements in society who focus on taking advantage of weak spots in our infrastructure. In order to prevent fraud and raise security levels, a lot of energy and innovation is needed to secure a trustworthy and reliable (payment)infrastructure and still secure a customer friendly and simple way of operations.


Our 2017 Winners! Congratulations!

On behalf of the Florin Award Jury, chair Charmaine Oak (Practice Lead, Digital Money) announced both the Jury Vote and Public Vote to the following winners:


ThreatMetrix – the winner of the Florin Award in the category “Architecture for Secure Transactions”.

Irdeto – the winner of the Florin Award in the category “Omni-channel Payments Security“.

The jury was impressed by the way that Irdeto has transformed itself over the years with the visionary leadership of founder Pieter den Tooner who established the company back in 1969. Today the company continues to play an important role in Europe while boasting a client base that includes customers worldwide. The jury especially valued the breadth of security solutions that spanned multiple industries including media & entertainment, automotive and payments. Their solutions in the area of cloakware and whitebox cryptography have a key role to play thanks to the importance of protecting Open APIs and the critical need for security across multiple devices.
