Touchtech Payments, founded in 2014, was one of the first financial technology companies in Europe to develop a solution that uses biometric scanning to authenticate online payments. It also became the first Irish company to offer a MasterCard and Visa certified payment authentication system using fingerprinting in 2015. Strong customer authentication (SCA) will be required on most transactions in Europe as of Sept. 14, 2019. You may not have heard much about SCA up to now but you will be hearing all about it in the coming months as these new European regulations are expected to radically change the way we buy online.
The company was recently acquired by payments giant Stripe, the fifth acquisition to be made by them in recent years.
