Spindle Uses ValidSoft to Authenticate Mobile Payments by Voice

Oct. 11, 2013

Spindle, an Arizona-based PSP, and authentication technology provider ValidSoft, unveiled a partnership this week in Las Vegas that will employ biometric technology in a mobile wallet. London-based ValidSoft is providing voice biometric authentication technology for Spindle’s MeNetwork360 “mobile commerce ecosystem.” The mobile app features a digital wallet that can be loaded with any payment card. MeNetwork users can unlock the wallet by speaking into the device within the app, not requiring an outside phone call, the companies said.

“We are very pleased to integrate this innovative biometric solution into the MeNetwork 360 platform,” said Bill Clark, CEO of Spindle. “It provides the highest level of authentication for payment transactions, and security for various wallet applications. Providing a platform that maintains the highest levels of security and privacy is of paramount importance to Spindle.”
