Atom Technologies has provided products and services for mobile payments, interactive voice response (IVR)-based payments, and mobile-based service distribution frameworks.[1]

Security[edit]

The company's payment platforms have been accredited for PCIDSS[3] & PA-DSS[4] certifications which are accepted by the banking industry and hence ascertain the security of its mobile payment transactions and the transmission of cardholder data.

Atom's payment platform uses Advanced Encryption Standard 128 Bit cipher block chaining for routing transactions using secure VPN connectivity. Atom does not store any credit card details but acts as a pass-through to the bank's payment gateway for routing transactions.[5]

Atom has tie-ups with major banks[6] apart from credit card companies like Visa Inc., MasterCard, and American Express. The credit cards of these banks and companies can be used to transact on the Atom platform. More than 1500 merchants have tied up with Atom to provide these payment services.[7]
