Sequent Tokenization Services Unveils Secure Channel Partner Program

Sequent, a California-based provider of a digital issuance platform and wallet platform-as-a-service (PaaS) for mobile payments, has introduced the Sequent Secure Channel Partner Program.

The Secure Channel Partner Program is designed to help resellers speed up the implementation and adoption of secure mobile payment and access apps, according to Sequent.

Sequent partners can leverage the company's security certifications from Visa and Mastercard and PCI-DSS Level 1 SP certification, the company stated.

In addition, Sequent provides partners with the flexibility to offer the Sequent Platform as a hosted PaaS or an on-premise enterprise deployment, the company said in a prepared statement.

What Is the Sequent Platform?

The Sequent Platform provides a pre-built channel that delivers access to secure mobile payment, access and identification service providers, according to Sequent.

It enables organizations to digitize their credit, debit, ID, loyalty or transit cards, Sequent indicated, and includes:

  • Card and Wallet Management Platform: Boosts the distribution and use of cards by enabling consumers to leverage third-party mobile apps to make payments, ride transit and open doors.
  • Token Service Platform (TSP): Brings all card types to mobile devices for payment, access, loyalty and other applications.
  • Trust Authority: Administers advanced keystore, private cryptography, secure communication and secure boot capabilities on native apps.

Sequent also provides application programming interfaces (APIs) to help mobile app developers digitize cards on mobile, wearable and connected devices, the company stated.

By doing so, Sequent ensures consumers can leverage their mobile devices to make payments, redeem offers and more, the company noted.
