VeriFone Achieves PCI PTS 3.0 for VX Evolution Products
VeriFone Systems’ flagship systems of its VX Evolution product family have been validated as compliant with the new Payment Card Industry (PCI) Payment Transaction Security (PTS) 3.0 security requirements.
PCI PTS 3.0 builds on existing requirements for increased security, and expands the scope of the compliance programme by adding three new modules for open protocols, integration and secure reading and exchange of data. The VX 680 mobile system, desktop VX 520 and PIN entry VX 820 have all achieved the latest version of the PCI PTS requirements.
“VeriFone continues to exceed industry requirements with speedy implementation of the latest security standards,” said Paul Rasori, VeriFone senior vice president, marketing. “PCI PTS 2.0- and 3.0-compliant systems will coexist for several years, but customers who chose to do so can deploy VeriFone’s PCI PTS 3.0 option now in order to remain compliant for longer periods.”
