Postilion Solutions Receive Visa Payment Application Security Validation
Visa Payment Application Best Practices (PABP) has validated Postilion applications used by banks and credit unions. This validation – by Visa USA and Visa Europe – indicates that the Postilion solutions for ATM driving and merchant acquiring handle cardholder data in a secure manner. It follows the July 2006 validation of Postilion applications for retailers, when Postilion was the first payment switch to achieve PABP validation in Europe. Visa PABP defines application best practices that are considered to be the industry standard for the data security of payment applications. Visa designed this program to assist software vendors in developing secure payment applications that minimise security breaches and compromised card details. The standards are designed to help banks and credit unions comply with payment industry standards such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Visa Europe and Visa USA list applications that have received this validation on their web sites.
