Datablink Completes Merger With BRToken
Datablink announces the launch of operations following its merger with Brazil-based BRToken, a user authentication and transaction signing company. The merged companies now operate as Datablink.
Datablink now offers mobile solutions and patented technology from BRToken that allows devices to read on-screen blinking patterns as a form of verifying transaction data. Datablink's physical devices create a secure channel with the backend of an organization. The user presses the lower button to enter the reading mode, points the sensor in the direction of a blinking image on the computer, and confirms that the displayed transaction values are correct. An electronic signature is then created.
