Inaugurates first data centre in Latin America to support mobile payments via NFC technology
Morpho, a supplier of high tech solutions in security, mobility and payment, has announced it has opened Latin America's first data centre for Trusted Service Management (TSM) technology, in Brazil.
The unit, which represents a part of the Euro 3.5 million to be invested in Brazil, will provide the infrastructure for all businesses that need secure and convenient electronic mobile payment solutions via NFC, including banks, telecom operators and public transportation.
Morpho's data centre in Taubaté, São Paulo, will enable customers to streamline projects and releases with TSM technology and accelerate their implementation and operation. This will transform the user's mobile phone into an electronic wallet with various payment and access features.
In case of loss or theft of a mobile device, the user needs only to call one phone number for all data to be immediately transferred to another chip, thus preventing the misuse of the stored information.
A local TSM data centre provides relevant differentials: local service, servers with high availability, face to face service in Portuguese and Spanish, and, in the specific case of Brazil, assurance that customer data remains in the country, which in many times is a customer demand.
Paolo Villasco, senior vice president Americas at Morpho, e-documents division, said: 'The new data centre is a perfect example of Morpho's successful combination of its global experience in innovation and state-of-the-art technology with local and personalized service. Since the data centre is already prepared to support large-scale projects, we expect to be operational for production in the second half of this year. Our plan is to set up additional data centres in Latin America.'
