American Express and Rambus Join Forces on Secure Global E-commerce Tokenization

Better user experience and improved security for transactions with online merchants

SUNNYVALE, Calif. and SYDNEY, Australia, Oct. 24, 2018 –  Rambus Inc. (NASDAQ: RMBS) and American Express Australia today announced a new collaboration to help merchants enrich and secure e-commerce and m-commerce transactions with tokenization. Rambus Token Gateway will enable global online merchants, payment service providers and acquirers to quickly and securely connect to the American Express Token Service and tokenize card-on-file e-commerce transactions. With this collaboration in place, Rambus is the first solution provider to offer an off-the-shelf retail token gateway solution with American Express embedded.

Tokenization mitigates fraud by replacing sensitive payment account information with a non-sensitive equivalent, known as a token, that cannot be used outside the scope of the original transaction. Designed to reduce complexity, the Rambus Token Gateway provides a single, easy-to-use interface which enables merchants to connect to tokenization services from various payment schemes in the payment industry.

Robert Tedesco, vice president, Global Consumer Services A/NZ at American Express said: "This new partnership with Rambus will mean merchants can offer our card members even more secure payment methods at the time of checkout. We'll also to be able to offer merchants access to our digital payment capabilities such as Pay with Points and Smart Offers, to further build customer loyalty with their customers that use American Express cards. We look forward to expanding this relationship in the future to further improve the buying experience."

Advantages for card issuers, acquirers, merchants and consumers

Because the American Express tokenization services have been integrated at the platform level in the Rambus Token Gateway, merchants will have access to all the current American Express capabilities along with new features as they are added, all without significant ad-hoc or custom work required.

Jerome Nadel, SVP/GM of Payments and Ticketing and CMO, Rambus commented: "Fraud continues to rise for e-commerce transactions and we need to give consumers more secure payment methods without compromising usability. By facilitating the use of tokens online, merchants and card issuers can increase trust in transactions throughout the ecosystem to drive higher authorization rates and improved customer conversions, resulting in greater revenues."

Merchants across the globe are able to benefit from this joint collaboration immediately.
