Stratos is more than a device, it’s a connected, cloud-based platform designed for today’s infrastructure. Stratos merges the efficiency and familiarity of a conventional payment card with the power and convenience of a mobile wallet. Merchants do not need to change their infrastructure to use Stratos, and consumers swipe just as they always have. Stratos membership is also future proof as the industry evolves. The company is actively collaborating with card associations and major U.S. banks to adapt the latest, most secure payment protocols, including EMV and tokenization.
