Cardinal Joins Visa

We are excited to let you know that, as of today, Cardinal is officially a part of the Visa family! We have successfully closed the previously announced transaction.

We are looking forward to the opportunities ahead to help Customers accelerate the growth of digital payments and commerce. Using intelligent, data-driven tools to prevent e-commerce fraud, we can secure the next generation of payments, whether made through a browser, mobile app or connected device. We believe that, together, merchants and issuers will be winners, ultimately making it easier, safer and more reliable for consumers to buy in the fastest growing distribution channels. 

Our entire team is excited about this opportunity!
