Industry event for financial executives, device providers and retail industry executives to examine the evolving intersection of payments and IoT
MELBOURNE, Florida, October 3, 2017 – Michael Orlando, COO of NXT-ID, Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTD) and president of Fit Pay, Inc. will be a Plenary Featured Speaker at the IoT Payments 2017, an industry event hosted by the Secure Technology Alliance that explores the evolving world of Internet of Things (IoT) payments.
IoT Payments 2017, which takes place October 10 – 11, 2017 at the Hyatt Regency in Austin, Texas, will bring together experts from both the IoT and payments communities to discuss the most important developments, innovations and efforts driving secure, seamless IoT payments. The event is organized by the Secure Technology Alliance (formerly the Smart Card Alliance), a not-for-profit, multi-industry association working to stimulate the understanding, adoption and widespread application of secure solutions, including smart cards, embedded chip technology, and related hardware and software. Orlando’s Featured presentation, entitled “Connected Commerce: The Internet of Payments,” will cover IoT payments business models, uses cases and adoption trends.
Orlando is COO of NXT-ID and president of Fit Pay, Inc. With 22 years of payment industry experience, he has held leadership positions in several successful companies, including Cybersource, where he played a primary role in its $2B acquisition by Visa. In 2014, Orlando co-founded Fit Pay, which provides an end-to-end contactless payment solution for IoT devices. In May 2017, Fit Pay combined businesses with NXT-ID, and is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the IoT and security technology company.
The FitPay Payment PlatformTM is a proprietary technology platform that delivers payment, credential management, authentication and other secure services to the IoT ecosystem. The platform uses tokenization, a payment security technology that replaces cardholders’ account information with a unique digital identifier (a “token”), to transact highly secure contactless payment and authentication services. FitPay leverages Embedded Secure Element (eSE) chip technology within devices to offer a payment solution that is very power and memory efficient and does not need to refresh a token once it is issued. This frees devices from needing to be tethered to a host device or connected to the Internet to transact payments, creating a superior user experience. FitPay’s end-to-end payment solution allows IoT and wearable device manufacturers to add payment and authentication capabilities to their products with very little start-up time, no investment in software development and access to the leading credit card networks.
