pleased with the quality of innovative nominations received and
congratulate the winners," said Tom Donlea, MRC's managing director

Conference attendees will also select the METAward winners, through
live voting, from three finalists in the start-up and four finalists
in the established company categories, who will present their
innovations live on Thursday, March 28. Finalists in the start-up
category include Curaxian, Sift Science and Signyfd. The established
company category finalists include Accertify, CardinalCommerce, ReD
and WorldPay. 
"The METAward recognizes solution providers delivering the most
innovative, cutting edge technology for managing payments and risk in
electronic commerce," said Nicolas Vedrenne, MRC's managing director
