Digital economy push offers hope for multiple players: Mastercard

Digital economy push offers hope for multiple players: Mastercard

India’s push towards expanding the digital economy offers room for multiple players to grow in the payments ecosystem, said Michael Froman, vice chairman and president, strategic growth at Mastercard.

“Digitisation and expanding the digital economy is good. There is plenty of room for many different types of players in that ecosystem,” Froman, who is a former United States’ G-20 sherpa and in the country to attend the B20 inception meeting here, told ET. He was responding to a query on whether RuPay and Unified Payments Interface (UPI) were a competition to Mastercard in the country.

“There can be multiple ways for people to participate in digital payments. What’s important is as that the system continues to evolve, issues around cyber security and fraud become more important,” he added.

He said the Mastercard sees India as one of its key markets.

“We have invested significantly in India and we see it as one of the most exciting markets in the world precisely for the government’s commitment to digitalization,” he said, adding that Mastercard had offered India its cyber security improvement service as the country ramps up its efforts to increase digitisation of transactions. He said Mastercard was 100% compliant with data localisation norms.

“All our data is on-soil. Irrespective of what future policies are, all Indian data is processed in India and stored in India.”

Froman said Mastercard was also working with India’s CERT-In through capacity building to improve cyber security for payments in the country.

“We have brought cyber experts from many parts of the world to India to help train people on the latest developments in cyber security,” he said.

Information Security - InfoSec - Cyber Security - Firewall Support Providers Company in India


What is Firewall? A Firewall is a network security device that monitors and filters incoming and outgoing network traffic based on an organization's previously established security policies. At its most basic, a firewall is essentially the barrier that sits between a private internal network and the public Internet.


Secure your network at the gateway against threats such as intrusions, Viruses, Spyware, Worms, Trojans, Adware, Keyloggers, Malicious Mobile Code (MMC), and other dangerous applications for total protection in a convenient, affordable subscription-based service. Modern threats like web-based malware attacks, targeted attacks, application-layer attacks, and more have had a significantly negative effect on the threat landscape. In fact, more than 80% of all new malware and intrusion attempts are exploiting weaknesses in applications, as opposed to weaknesses in networking components and services. Stateful firewalls with simple packet filtering capabilities were efficient blocking unwanted applications as most applications met the port-protocol expectations. Administrators could promptly prevent an unsafe application from being accessed by users by blocking the associated ports and protocols.
