MX Simplifies Data Sharing with Secure Processor Tokens
Moov is first MX payment processor partner to launch tokenized data exchanges for verifications with accelerated onboarding
MXapi Processor Tokens vastly improve, secure and speed up money movement and account opening experiences for consumers
LEHI, UT – July 19, 2022 – MX, a leader in Open Finance, today announced the general availability of MXapi Processor Tokens — an innovative way to verify a user’s financial account information in a secure, simplified, API-data exchange. MXapi Processor Tokens dramatically increase the speed and experience for account opening and money movement processes between MX clients and their mutual payment processor partners.
With MXapi Processor Tokens, MX clients can go to market faster with payment processor partners and enable secure, simplified sharing of actionable user data by:
- Removing the need for MX clients to store sensitive user data
- Making it easier for mutual partners to easily access money movement data sets
- Providing easy access to the necessary account data needed for identification and Know Your Customer (KYC) initiatives
- Giving MX clients greater flexibility to work with multiple partners
- Delivering real-time balances that reveal the up-to-the moment status of an account before initiating payments
- Enabling deeper fraud analysis by exposing tokenized transaction history.
“In a world where protecting against data breaches and other financial fraud is paramount, processor tokens enable our clients to protect their consumers,” said Corinne Bartow, vice president of Fintech Partnerships at MX. “Whether moving money or opening an account, they no longer need to store the user's verified account data or create new connections each time data is necessary to verify information. This is a big deal, especially in the fintech multi-party ecosystem.”
“Since my early days at Moov, it was clear that we needed to prioritize and synchronize our technology priorities with the MX platform,” said Joel Tosi, CTO of Moov. “Because of MX’s thoughtful architecture, we were able to spin up our Processor Token integration in a single sprint cycle, enabling us to further expedite new customer onboarding.”
For MX mutual partners, MXapi Processor Tokens improve data accessibility, removing the need to run standalone jobs to gather data. In addition, token-based APIs can provide account ownership data, transaction history, account balance data, and more for the processor to securely move money for the consumer. Secure tokens also make it easy and safe for relevant parties to verify consumer financial data while avoiding the risks of handling and storing sensitive information.
“By providing rich tokenized access to users’ financial data, we’ve reduced a security concern in the ongoing partnerships that MX financial clients build with our mutual partners,” Bartow continued.
“MX’s partner-first methodology makes co-development of new solutions like the Token Processor integration both easy and powerful,” continued Tosi. “I’ve worked with other open-banking platforms in the past, and the partnership with MX has truly been a force multiplier for Moov’s platform business. MX has created a technology offering that further enhances Moov's ability to reduce client registration friction and increase security for our mutual customers. For me, this makes the decision to invest in the MX relationship really easy.”
Building on the growth of the MX Partner Network, MXapi Processor Tokens furthers MX’s vision to build the open finance economy by delivering industry-leading solutions and services to financial institutions, digital banking platforms, payments solution providers, Banking-as-a-Service (BaaS) providers, identification and KYC platforms, software development firms, and others. MX plans to expand its MXapi Processor Tokens across its greater partner network in the coming months.
MX continues to develop and expand its Partner Program to include additional features and processes that streamline the partner experience and set them up for success.
“Our recent release of a partner portal will continue to grow as MX works with partners to identify ways to streamline the onboarding and management process for referrals and resellers of MX’s solutions,” said Bartow.
