Trintech Achieves Visa PED Certification on Bank-Accredited PIN Pad Terminals

Thursday 30 October 2003 18:33 CET | News

Trintech Group has achieved Visa PED (PIN Entry Device) certification on its bank-accredited Smart 5000 and Compact 950 PINPad terminals.

The widespread migration of card payments to PIN validation rather than signature is a major deterrent against fraud. This migration requires retailers to deploy PIN Pads that allow customers to enter a PIN number instead of a signature. Visa has set a global standard for PIN Pad security to ensure PIN numbers are handled securely and remain private at point-of-sale. All newly deployed PIN Pads must meet VISA PED requirements by 1st January 2004. Trintechs PayWare Smart 5000 and Compact 950 have advanced tamper-proof mechanisms to safeguard against any physical or electronic attack and to help prevent the PIN from being compromised. Trintech is committed to the highest level of security at retail point-of-sale and has ensured that its range of products is certified by VISA well in advance of the deadline. In addition to this Visa PED compliance, Trintechs PIN Pads already meet or exceed global national security requirements. This includes for example, the ZKA standard in Germany - widely acknowledged as one of the most tringent security standards in the world.
