Zeta’s flagship next-gen credit card processing stack Zeta Tachyon enables issuers to go to market in a more expedited manner than legacy processors, launch credit card products, personalise their credit card programmes across millions of credit card holders, and develop unique IP to have their products differentiated from other issuers. The stack is built free of legacy code and is 100% cloud-native, API-first, and leverages modern micro-services architecture and zero-trust security principles.
