TNS Achieves IP Network Certification
Transaction Network Services (TNS) has become the first IP gateway operator in France to achieve certification for its secure IP/X.25 network. Granted by the Groupement Cartes Bancaires, TNS’ IP converting solutions, ConverterPoint, FusionPoint and DSLPoint, associated with its TransXpress Secure SSL platform, are also accredited with the new IP encryption standard. The GIE CB certification was introduced in January 2007 as a way of offering assurance to the banks that all telecom providers, processors and POS companies have the necessary levels of security in place for transporting and processing financial transactions. Each transaction transported by TNS will conform to the new encryption standard.
