Dedicated to delivering excellence

Building payment technologies D8's way.


A Humble Beginning

D8 Corporation was founded in 2002 by ex-banking technology executives who saw an opportunity to offer their technical expertise to a rapidly developing payment card industry in the Baltics. By December 2002, the development of StrongHold as D8’s first product was underway.

First Commercial StrongHold Launch

In 2003, D8 Corporation launched the first commercial installation of StrongHold Risk Management platform for Latvijas Krājbanka (Latvian Savings Bank), monitoring payment card transactions for possible fraud in real-time. 


Going Beyond the Baltics

D8 Corporation opened its first subsidiary – an office in Ukraine in 2005.

After implementing a few successful projects in the Baltics, D8 started taking on international challenges in the CIS region and signed an agreement with the a processing center in Ukraine to upgrade their core processing infrastructure. 

First Projects Beyond Europe

The late 00’s hallmarked a strong growth period in D8’s history, as we started actively undertaking payment card infrastructure projects outside Europe, particularly in Africa and CIS, working in close cooperation with Metavante Technologies, Inc. as a systems integrator.


Going Global

In 2009, Metavante Technologies, Inc. was acquired by FIS Global, which marks the beginning of D8’s system integration partnership with FIS Global. 

In 2010, D8 was reorganized into D8 Corporation Ltd. (SIA), which became the HQ for D8’s operations globally. 

A New Milestone

In 2012, D8 completed the biggest payment cards project up until then and was recognized for excellence by Visa in implementing the first MDEX acquiring project outside the US and Australia. 


From Card to Token

In late 2015, D8 Corporation launched one of the first commercial installations of HCE-based tokenization systems in the world, in cooperation with Mastercard and using Mastercard’s MCBP standard. 

Domestic Tokenization Era

In late 2020, D8 Corporation launched one of the first national-scale tokenization projects for a domestic payment network in Uzbekistan. 23 banks were onboarded within the first 3 months after go-live.


Dominating Niches

Throughout 2021 and 2022, D8 worked hard to establish itself as a leader in certain niches in the Caucasus region. 

Western Europe, Central Asia, LATAM and Beyond

Since 2022, D8 has been strategically realigning its business model, expanding its own solution portfolio and geographic reach to Western Europe, LATAM, and Central Asia. 

We continue to form a range of important strategic partnerships, both commercial and technological, in these regions and it will allow us to excel at delivering the best payments infrastructure software for the financial industry. 

D8 Corporation Head
Why US

“We have always strived to provide our clients with personalized attention to their needs (whether they be technical, organizational, or financial), which is absent when dealing with large corporate vendors, especially if you’re a small to mid-sized organization yourself. Our clients have historically chosen D8 Corporation due to our willingness to go the extra mile and provide the level of customization to our solutions that hardly any vendor in the industry has. “
