Validian also is positioned to earn another $75,000 on completion and acceptance of the integration as well as ongoing additional revenue as the number of Validian-enabled endpoints is expected to grow through the deployment of the ISV's app to the end users of its banking and enterprise customers.

"Our new customer is developing a next generation mobile secure money transfer and payment app for domestic and international deployment to the end users of its banking and enterprise customers. Its integration with the core banking systems and data bases of its banking partners gives Validian key insight to the back end of the banking system.," commented Bruce Benn, Chief Executive Officer of Validian. "The banking and finance sectors continue to seek enhanced cyber security and privacy for their consumer end users particularly in mobile banking. Validian provides cyber security and privacy features that solve current security and privacy issues in the mobile banking world for the complete life cycle of data, which are not achievable by combinations of other cyber security technologies and solutions.
