ELAN is a Taiwan-based company specializing in fingerprint sensors and integrated circuit design technology. After years of successfully developing solutions for laptop touchpads, ELAN has recently diversified into the mobile and payments ecosystem. Utilizing their innovative Match-on-Chip fingerprint sensors, ELAN is working to adapt their technology to deliver a secure, seamless biometric authentication solution for mobile and card payments.
As a relative newcomer to payments, ELAN needed to better understand the industry, its requirements and standards. It was also keen to differentiate its technology in an increasingly saturated biometric sensor market. ELAN needed a partner who could help them achieve multiple payment industry compliance, starting with Mastercard, and benchmark their solution againstcompetitors.
Fime was a reliable and strong partner that helped us explore and navigate the payments industry, allowing us to adapt our biometric solutions for success.
Executive Assistant President’s office at ELAN
ELAN set out to establish itself as a reputable brand in payments by demonstrating the quality of its secure, seamless authentication solution. To do this, it wanted to initially achieve Mastercard compliance before aligning with other payment industry heavyweights. Importantly, in an extremely fast paced and competitive market, it wanted to achieve compliance as efficiently as possible to enable a faster time to market.
Fime defined a roadmap to support every step of the process. Fime experts initially offered specialist training and consultancy, running a series of workshops to help ELAN better understand the market and certification processes. The team then tailored a test strategy to improve product attack detection and anti-spoofing performance. They also optimized the False Acceptance Rate (FAR) and False Rejection Rate (FRR) before tailoring a testing strategy to achieve successful type approval.
