Securing Digital Identities & Transactions

Tyfone’s platform dramatically enhances any existing security solutions across multiple industries on any device, on all major operating systems.

At the heart of Tyfone’s patented CSC™ hardware endpoint security technology is the Secure Element, built on globally adopted standards, offering the highest levels of tamper resistance, secure storage and hardware encryption. Tyfone’s CSC™ hardware is available in various compact form factors, such as memory card, USB plug, key, and CR80 card to accommodate various user preferences. These form factors collectively are called Side™ form factors. Details for each form factor are shown below.

Tyfone’s U4ia software is the universal translator that converts data from various systems into a format that is understood by Tyfone’s mobile applications. The U4ia software has been successfully integrated with core banking systems, bill pay engines, payment systems, leading smart card provisioning and ID managements systems.

Side-XTM form factors from Tyfone

Tyfone SideSafe™ and SideTap™ are based on the microSD form factor. These devices act as normal storage devices in addition to hosting a Secure Element smart card chip. Both SideSafe™ and SideTap™ can connect to a host device as is or with a USB card reader. The SideTap™ version of this form factor also includes an inbuilt NFC antenna and a booster. This form factor enables payments and access control using non-NFC phones.

Tyfone SideCard™ is the generic plastic card interface, available as part of our comprehensive portfolio to meet the varied needs of our customers. It has the smart card circuitry and NFC interface for payments. It can connect to a host device using Bluetooth.
