SPVA Adds Five New Payment Company Members
The Secure POS Vendor Alliance (SPVA) has added five more payment and enterprise security companies to its membership. Joining the SPVA are Elavon, ID Tech, Independent Purchasing Co-operative (IPC), Voltage Security, and the first Asia-based company, GHL Systems Berhad.
The SPVA is a non-profit business organisation founded by Hypercom, Ingenico and VeriFone to advance compliance of existing payment card security standards, protect cardholder information and defend merchants and acquirers against security breaches. Membership is open to all vendors that develop secure point-of-sale (POS) payment systems or have products or solutions that interact with secure POS payment devices such as retailers, acquirers and banks.
“We’re indeed pleased to be part of the SPVA. This initiative reflects our ongoing commitment to ensure the highest levels of security and conforming to globally-recognised standards,” said Jason Phua , GHL Systems’ vice president of product marketing and strategic alliances. “It is also vitally important that the aspirations of GHL Systems in the areas of payment security, as well as those of our customers, are represented.”
