In the early 2000s, MasterCard and Visa jointly developed the EMV standard for chip-based payment cards that brought a dramatic increase in security and functionality. The solution in this space protects cardholder data, payment credentials and card based applications rendering it virtually impossible to extract information and create counterfeit cards, which is one of the greatest sources of fraud with traditional magnetic stripe cards
