What some people say ..."[e-Path] An ingenuously simple and logical approach with the potential to ease the pressure on the credit industry as they continue the struggle to close security vulnerabilities with card based live transactions over the internet."
David Taylor - Commerce Tomorrow (Monthly Publication)
"Watch e-Path. The disturbing question is why has it taken so long for a model like this to appear?"
William J Newbury - Financial Reviews, Epay World
"[e-Path] sacrifices the convenience of instant internet based transaction processing for the sake of improved security. Granted, they [e-Path] do this well but I for one will not be going to a manual system."
Claire McKinley - Enterprise Commercial Quarterly
"We all know high strength 2,048 bit asymmetric cryptography is unbreakable. What is unique is how they [e-Path] have designed their relatively simple non-processing online credit card handling service around it. Clever."
'Professor Byte' - Willmington e-Commerce Advisory Committee
"This [e-Path] new direction gives online businesses the ability to seize control of their transaction processes for the purpose of reducing their own direct exposure to risk .... I can see how this would work well .... a safer system offering reduced risk would give banks prime leverage to target their merchant services to the lucrative entry level virtual business market with renewed vigor."
S. Johnston Jnr - Smith, Johnston and Boverich. Strategic Financials.
"You simply can not get a better way to protect credit card information on the internet than for it not to exist on the internet. E-Path delivers what is shaping up to be an almost annoyingly commonsensical solution to the problem of online credit card data security."
Damien Croft - CEO, ComCron
"The challenge with encryption is that older payment systems were not built to support the scrambling technology ... Encryption is the ultimate measure of security.."
Qualys CEO Philippe Courtot
"This new manual gateway from the Australia company, e-Path Pty Ltd, will only appeal to those likely to be doing small numbers of transactions per day and as such can not be considered a mainstream alternative to current live online processors. Reverting back to manual processes means reduced productivity for most businesses. But talk security and I concede e-Path has raised the bar to an impressive height, no doubt about that."
Samantha Goldburg - The Online Merchant
"What rock has e-Path been hiding under?"
Tracey Ward - The Business Family
"Their non-permanent storage of card holder data nails a previously unattainable goal for online credit card handlers ... a major achievement that should delight the card provider companies .... but looking under the skin they [e-Path} appear to be little more than an online fax machine on cryptographc steriods."
Simon Metcalf - ComZone UK
"Businesses have been cursing the cost of fraud ever since we were able to process payments online. E-Path looks like the first genuine attempt by a payment gateway to improve security by actual design .... even though it [e-Path] takes you back to handling processes manually I don't mind their thinking."
Mary Merrywhether - Article 'Risks in Business'
"A proper online payment processor, no. An easier and safer solution for the smaller e-merchant, quite possibly."
Max Minyarno - Financial Services Manager
"E-Path is no big deal. They have simply identified what causes risk and gone about trying to eliminate it. Bright sparks change the world for the better all the time, like I said, no big deal."
Shane Williams - MacSpeak 2007.
"What a first class little service. Why would people still run the risk of fines by accepting credit card payments online by insecure methods, like email, when doing it right is now affordable."
Jamie Bradley - Editor, Smart Talk
"I can't see much point in this new [e-Path] service. Where's the automation? OK, so its good news in the security department, a bit cheaper and easier to handle but having to make charges manually offline is not going to have everyone rushing to change their gateway. It will suit some but certainly not the majority. Nice idea, but not for me."
Trevor - ZNet feedback
"A small company that has achieved something real here .... they understate the contribution I can see them having on making the internet safer and less costly for online businesses."
Joe Briggins - Social media enthusiast specialising in Internet and computer security
"Just my 2c worth. I did this like a year ago. I use e-path. For a full year I have not recorded one single fraud transaction into my merchant account because I can SEE AND IDENTIFY them when I receive them. I can offer my customers the best security there is because none of their credit card details are permanently stored on the world wide web. And to top it off it is cheap and makes me totally PCI compliant without me having to do anything to my site or my hosting. It is an awesome service and I will never go back to the 'dark ages' of Russian roulette with an expensive real time gateway and all those charge backs. No way man.."
'TrueBlue' - Contributing comment on Payment Gateways & Merchant Accounts - e-Commerce Talk
"As everyone scrambles to dig deep into their wallets to become PCI DSS compliant, e-Path has an answer neatly wrapped up in a single package where you don't have to dig so deep."
David Knight - Australian e-commerce industry observer
"Doing things manually gives a huge advantage in stopping credit card fraud ... The average business is fed up with money being taken out of their account [by their bank] because the automatic online charge done last month through their real time gateway now suddenly turns out was a fraudulent one. I think doing things manually has some real advantages."
