Saudis use VPN for ATM bill payments

Powered by SC Magazine
 

The Saudi Arabian Monetary Agency (SAMA) is implementing a virtual private network to allow people to pay their bills through ATMs.

The national project is a collaboration of the banks in Saudi Arabia, which will allow people to pay utility and phone bills at the banking machines.

SAMA is the country's central bank and investment authority.

Security firm CyberGuard sold the VPN solution to SAMA.
