Tyfone (www.tyfone.com), a secure mobile ID and transactions solutions provider, today announced that it has integrated Acculynk’s real-time person-to-person (P2P) money movement service, Payzur, into the Tyfone-based mobile banking iPhone and Android applications adopted by Boulder Valley Credit Union (BVCU). With Payzur, BVCU members can log into the app, enter their PIN and send a real-time P2P payment to any email address or mobile phone number.
With users becoming accustomed to electronic financial services and the acceptance of mobile banking apps, looking up and paying bills on mobile devices will continue growing in popularity. Yet, as technology cybercrime risks impact the financial industry, and society as a whole, the implementation of the most highly recognized security products and technologies for banks and credit unions should simplify the way financial institutions serve customers while benefiting those customers with increasingly convenient features that are secure.
BVCU has successfully been using Tyfone’s mobile financial solutions since early this year and with the addition of Acculynk’s real-time P2P solution, BCVU members can now send payments from their mobile devices to friends, family and others with recipients having immediate access to funds versus days.
“As mobile banking continues to evolve and see more adoption, financial institutions are finding ways to make the mobile banking experience more convenient than ever,” said Jason Bauer, vice president of communications/e-commerce at BVCU. “Moreover, mobile banking levels the playing field enabling small financial institutions to compete head to head with organizations of any size, a key reason for incorporating Tyfone’s next-generation banking technology to expand mobile banking options for our members. Giving members the flexibility to send money to anyone securely is a natural next step in maximizing world-class mobile banking services.”
Acculynk’s Payzur is a 100 percent white-labeled P2P solution that allows a customer to send funds simply by authenticating the mobile- or Web-initiated transaction with his bank-issued PIN via the PaySecure® patented online graphical PIN pad. Since Payzur is not ACH-based, there is no enrollment or waiting period for consumers to begin using the service. Payzur is fully brandable by the financial institution, and Acculynk anticipates that financial institutions will choose to private label the service.
“Acculynk’s debit-based Payzur P2P service provides financial institutions with an inherently ‘sticky’ product that reinforces the financial institution’s brand, encourages PIN Debit card use and provides real-time money movement, which is a ‘must have’ for today’s consumers,” said Sandra Chesnutt, general manager Payzur, Acculynk. “Working with Tyfone on the inaugural in-app mobile deployment is a major milestone for Payzur. Tyfone’s team is very thorough and we look forward to many more deployments with Tyfone in the future.”
P2P at Money2020
Tyfone will highlight the BVCU/Acculynk mobile banking solution at booth 616 at the Money2020 conference held in Las Vegas, October 6-10, at the Aria Resort & Casino.
Acculynk secures online transactions with a suite of software-only services backed by a patented authentication and encryption framework that provides greater security for issuers, EFT networks, merchants and payment processors. Acculynk’s PaySecure® utilizes a graphical PIN-pad for the secure entry of a consumer’s PIN online and is available to merchants through existing acquirer relationships, enabling speedy implementation. PaySecure is currently enabled on over 6,000 merchant websites. Acculynk has partnerships with 11 EFT networks to process PaySecure transactions and with six leading payment processors, and is certified with PULSE, First Data and Master Card, among other key industry leaders. Additionally, Acculynk solutions include PayLeap, a gateway and acquiring and card processing services, and Payzur, a debit-based P2P solution. Acculynk contracts with financial institutions directly and through channel partners to offer the Payzur p-commerce solution to their customers. Visit http://www.acculynk.com.

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020.
