American Express Bahrain wanted to modernize payments by going from 3DS 1.0 protocol version to the next level payment protocol, 3DS 2.2. The previously used version of 3DS 1.0 led to cumbersome security procedures for mobile customers and lower conversion rates as a result.
Netcetera implemented 3DS 2.2, supported by their Access Control Server (ACS). The new protocol ofers several factors (transaction limits, whitelisting) to bypass unnecessary steps and encourage simplified online purchases. Our ACS also enabled Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) or two-party authentication, ensuring protection against fraud when making online purchases.
We were pleased to be able to improve the 3DS setup and deliver great results with state-of-the-art technology for American Express. We pride ourselves on always offering the latest payment security solutions.
