Authorize.net is currently owned by Visa Inc., one of the world’s largest payment technology companies. Visa acquired Authorize.net in 2010 as part of its strategy to expand its presence in the electronic payments and merchant services industry. Since then, Authorize.net has continued to operate as a leading payment gateway, providing secure and reliable payment processing services to merchants worldwide. Authorize.net’s parent gateway, CyberSource, is operated separately by Visa, Inc. as part of its small-medium business payment gateway strategy.
Authorize.net itself has had a tremendous reputation as a leading provider of gateway services to businesses. Last check they and their parent company, Cybersource manage more than 500,000 businesses nationally. Cybersource’s focus is on larger-scale website demands domestically and internationally. Merchants that use Cybersource have access to the branded Cybersource Business Centre, which is the equivalent of the Authorize.net merchant interface. While both companies operate separately and are owned by a single company, they share many technological attributes.
