The
Sequent
Team

Silicon Valley-based Sequent Software, Inc. was founded in 2010 and is headquartered in Santa Clara, California. Since its founding Sequent has been at the forefront of digital transformation and mobile security. Sequent has delivered patented technology that has both enabled and secured an entirely new world of mobile based content and experiences in fields such as payments, financial services, loyalty, transit, and building access. Throughout the world and on five continents Sequent has partnered with banks, payment service providers, merchants, mobile network operators, transit agencies and access providers to fully secure account, card, ID and access credentials in mobile, wearable and IOT environments.

At the core of Sequent technology is Sequent’s flagship product, Sequent Platform, which as a Software as a Service platform performs and orchestrates the tokenization and digital issuance of any type of card, account or ID credential to any type of connected device. Application developers use Sequent Platform’s simple API’s to access tokenized credentials provided by both Sequent Platform and third party tokenization providers such as Mastercard and Visa. Once credentials are issued to the mobile device Sequent Platform manages their lifecycle and enables their use for HCE based (Host Card Emulation), SE based (Secure Element), NFC, QR Code, InApp and eCommerce transactions. Sequent Platform brings all of these services together in one SDK which enables App developers to focus their development resources on their brand and customer experience. At the same time developers and the organizations they serve can be confident in Sequent’s ability to ensure a level of trust and security that meets the high standards on EMVco, Mastercard, Visa, and PCI DSS.
