Allied Wallet, a globally leading provider of online payment processing, multi-currency merchant services, and a PCI Level 1 secured payment gateway, was recently granted the privilege to issue MasterCard and Maestro cards in various regions of Europe.
MasterCard has strict regulations for any financial institution that seeks to issue payment cards. But upon review, Allied Wallet has been deemed a licensed issuer of MasterCard or Maestro cards, servicing various regions of Europe including the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Spain.
This issuing license will allow Allied Wallet to issue payment cards to its eWallet members, giving them the opportunity to spend the money saved in their eWallets at any storefront that accepts MasterCard or Maestro.
Allied Wallet advertises their eWallet as a simple means to “receive, send, or spend money.” Users can send money from their eWallet to another or receive money into their eWallet account.
“Allied Wallet has strived to connect consumers and business owners from all over the world, connecting 196 countries and giving them a safe way to transact internationally,” said CEO Andy Khawaja, “and this issuing license will give us an even better way to service our eWallet users.”
Allied Wallet already supports over 100 million users. This issuing license is a large step for the company, but the rewards will benefit Allied Wallet users most. All users in supported regions will be eligible for MasterCard or Maestro card issuing.
This new means of connectivity between a consumer and their money offers a more interconnected relationship between people and their funds, allowing their e-commerce experience to co-mingle with their traditional shopping habits.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
