Bull Group's CC 200 Plus electronic purse card has obtained certification from Proton World International.
The CC 200 Plus, the latest in the Cash Card range that is in use in many bank smart card programs around the world, exceeds earlier models in processing speeds and capabilities such as data encryption.
"Proton e-purse technology is the most widely used smart card technology in the world," said David Levy, managing director of Bull Smart Cards and Terminals. "With the CC Cash Card range, Bull has made it possible for banks to fully adapt to the needs of their customers at optimal cost."
Card issuers "demand a high level of security and flexibility, which is why Proton World has already had a great deal of success," said Armand Linkens, managing director of Brussels-based Proton World. "It is continuing to expand its network by offering smart card solutions that satisfy the needs of all sorts of licensees. We are pleased to add Bull's new card to our existing range of 'new generation' Proton cards."
Proton World is a joint venture of American Express Co., Banksys of Belgium, ERG Group of Australia, Interpay of the Netherlands, and Visa International.
