Commenting further on this Director/CEO and chief architect of this product Viraj Mudalige said: “This is a very niche product, with a unique domain expertise which is assimilated, designed and developed in-house at EPIC Lanka. There is no doubt that by the launch of this product we will be putting Sri Lanka on the world map with our Access Controller Server Solution for 3D Payments. In today’s high tech digital society in which we live, having this solution greatly reduces the risk of fraudulent transactions, because the card issuing bank has to conduct a verification and a user authentication before sending the transaction to the card acquirer for payment authorisation. This shifts the liability to the card issuers, which, in turn will help to reduce fraud when the cardholder in not presenting his/her card for the transaction.”
