SINGAPORE – Razer Pay today inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with V-Key Pte. Ltd., a Singapore-based digital security firm, to foster strategic collaboration over digital identity and e-payments.
Under the agreement, V-Key will look into providing leading technology to support and facilitate the highest standards of authentication and security for Razer Pay, and across the entire Razer ecosystem at large.
This includes deploying V-Key’s seamless app-to-app user authentication and authorisation mechanisms that enable secure transactions for Razer Pay’s rapidly scaling user base.
Razer Pay will leverage on V-Key’s expertise across ASEAN-wide government-, banking- and gateway-level applications to develop and apply safeguards to the Razer Pay application, thereby protecting Razer Pay’s million-strong network of merchant acceptance points in ASEAN.
V-Key and Razer will also work to strengthen authentication and security processes for the global Razer ecosystem. For example, Razer may integrate V-Key’s Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) technology secured by V-Key’s V-OS Smart Token technology, across all of its platforms including PC, web, and mobile applications.
“V-Key is excited to launch this strategic partnership with Razer in the areas of digital identity and e-payments. The same trusted technologies that have been deployed by banks and governments will now be made available to the gaming and entertainment space through Razer, allowing for seamless and secure user experiences,” said Joseph Gan, Co-founder and President, V-Key.
