Business Wire

PARIS -- November 05, 2012

MONEXT has become the first approved VISA Merchant Agent in France. In other
words, MONEXT is approved as a trusted third party on the VISA website. This
is the culmination of a process started 5 years ago, and which certifies all
of MONEXT PCI-DSS platforms. For its customers – banks, merchants and
e-merchants – this is the assurance of an ultra-secure handling of bank data
during the storage and transmission of sensitive information.

MONEXT admitted to the prestigious VISA Merchant Agent list

With the increase in cyber-attacks to steal bank data from financial
intermediaries, the VISA network has announced that from January 1st, 2013,
cyber-merchants and traditional merchants must use certified platforms to host
their transactional applications.

As a payment service provider, Monext has therefore obtained Visa approval
which attests to the protection of the cardholder data according to the PCI
DSS security standard. For MONEXT’s customers, both small and large merchants,
it is the assurance of securing all their payment transactions without
incurring any heavy financial investment and thus continuing to benefit from
the guarantees of the VISA network.
