Adyen's market leading solution supports the widest coverage of card networks for 3DS 2 and legacy versions of 3DS at global scale through a single platform.
Uber’s mission is to bring reliable transportation to everywhere, for everyone. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get a ride at the touch of a button? More than eight years and five billion trips later, we’ve started tackling an even greater challenge: reducing congestion and pollution in our cities by getting more people into fewer cars.
