Seylan Bank upgrades Online Transaction Security for all cards


Seylan Bank announced the enhancement of its online transaction security protocol to EMV 3DS 2.0 for both Issuing and Acquiring stages, becoming one of the first banks in Sri Lanka to do so. This upgrade will ensure superior fraud prevention ability and a seamless customer check-out experience for Seylan customers on their Master and Visa card-based transactions.

With client security at the forefront of its core deliverables, Seylan Bank continuously ensures that processes and protocols are updated to best suit the evolving transaction behaviour of customers. As such, the Bank had already enabled all its Cards with the Three Domain Secure (3DS) protocol previously. This authenticates Cardholders when they perform card-not-present (CNP) transactions such as online payments on e-commerce websites using Credit and Debit cards. The upgrade to 3DS 2.0 will further secure the customers in their card transactions ensuring better customer experience resulting in fewer false declines and reduced stepped-up authentication.

Commenting on the latest upgrade, Ruchith Liyanage, Head of Cards of Seylan Bank stated, “We take pride in being one of the first leading banks to upgrade to 3DS 2.0, which validates our commitment to ensure customer safety, while providing convenient banking services.
