Newcastle Upon Tyne, Tyne And Wear, United Kingdom, 2015/01/27 - Secure mobile payments solutions provider Omlis announce their global partnership with leading provider of availability solutions, Stratus® Technologies - Stratus.com / Omlis.com.
This partnership enables Omlis to provide their high integrity mobile payment solutions through Stratus’ infrastructure solutions.
Through this partnership Omlis and Stratus will jointly deliver infrastructure and mobile payments security solutions that are “Always On and Always Secure” across the global payments ecosystem.
“This signifies a step change in the development of Omlis as a business. This partnership enables Stratus and Omlis to reach new markets, protect businesses and individuals from fraud and deliver a highly compelling commercial proposition to financial institutions, payment service providers, mobile network operators and the whole of the payments ecosystem,” said John Stuart, Chief Commercial Officer at Omlis. “Together we are committed to delivering truly world-leading security solutions.”
Stratus has been protecting revenue, reputation and lives for over 30 years with their ‘Always On’ solutions. The business has built an impeccable reputation around the world ensuring that their customers’ most critical applications and services are never affected by downtime. The Stratus software and platform solutions, similar to that of Omlis’ security technology, are always running in the background, ensuring consumers can access their banking details and financial services organizations can process payments. The Omlis solution compliments this by ensuring that all mobile-based electronic fund transfers are fully secured.
“Having the right partners on board is key to our go-to-market strategy. We see in Omlis an exciting business with an innovative and powerful technology. Their approach to security matches our attitude towards reliability, and we’re looking forward to a fantastic 2015 with Omlis,” said Richard Sharod, EMEA Director for Stratus Technologies.
The timing of this partnership is key with many leading retailers experiencing public security breaches in 2014. The Omlis technology allows Stratus to offer their customers an end-to-end mobile payment encryption solution that is fully secure, provides a frictionless payment experience and eliminates the risk of large-scale data breaches.
“Together our companies will protect users and business against fraud and accelerate the growth of mobile payments through a trusted solution that offers new levels of convenience,” said Markus Milsted, CEO of Omlis. “We are proud and honored to now be working with Stratus in EMEA. We share many common objectives and goals as well as a powerful vision for the future.”
Omlis has successfully completed a proof of concept (PoC) using Stratus ftServer® to efficiently process mobile payment transactions and plans to extend this to include Stratus’ software solution, everRun®. The PoC has demonstrated the ease in which the Omlis solution can be integrated into existing infrastructure. This complements the same ease of use Stratus’ customers have come to expect.
2014 has seen Omlis achieve massive market-entry milestones. Following the signing of the first Omlis Distribution Agreement with Stratus Technologies in Mexico in late 2013, Omlis is now appointed as a global Stratus Silver Partner. Omlis has been successfully recognized as an IBM Partner, registered as an IBM independent Software Vendor (ISV), and accepted as a member of the IBM Global Entrepreneur scheme and the IBM Catalyst program. In Chile, in early 2014, Omlis appointed ISN, a specialized supplier of market leading secure payment and banking solutions as the chosen partner for Chile and other South American territories.
These strategic partnerships with highly effective and well-established organizations will drive the accelerated adoption of secure mobile payments.
