GlobeSet Inc. in Austin, TX, a provider of SET (Secure Electronic Transaction) software for OEM solutions, said it has successfully completed interoperability testing between a variety of GlobeSet Payment System and IBM Payment Suite software payment applications.

These include:

  • GlobeSet Wallet v1.1 with IBM Consumer Wallet v1.0.11, v1.2

    Testing consisted of each vendor's software applications performing and passing basic, advanced and comprehensive interoperability scenarios that replicated real-world payment card transactions between consumers, merchants, financial institutions and certificate authorities.

    "This industry-first milestone, the most comprehensive in terms of interoperability testing between two leading SET software vendors, reflects each company's commitment to customer needs in the financial and retail markets," said Wes Byrne, vice president, product development at GlobeSet. "Customers require technology that works easily and seamlessly into their business processes, and GlobeSet and IBM have jointly delivered on those requirements."

    "Interoperability is a key component in the adoption of SET as a payment protocol," said Mark Greene, vice president of Internet payments at IBM. "IBM's work with GlobeSet and other companies in the Internet payment arena is designed to make the transition to SET as seamless as possible for consumers, merchants and financial institutions."
