Creditcall Obtains PCI-Validated P2PE Certification
Creditcall, the EMV-ready omni-channel payment gateway and EMV Kernel provider, has announced that ChipDNA, its Point to Point Encryption (P2PE) solution — in combination with Ingenico and Verifone PINpads — has been validated by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC).
This gives developers, ISVs and VARs a cost-effective and hassle-free solution to incorporate PCI-validated P2PE in their point-of-sale (POS) systems, which can reduce the scope of PCI Data Security Standard compliance for their merchant customers, while providing a choice of PCI-approved PINpads.
As merchants struggle to keep up with evolving security and regulatory requirements, this certification comes at a crucial time when companies are failing compliance responsibilities.
Creditcall’s latest certified solution for two of the most popular payment terminals — Ingenico and Verifone PINpads — alleviates many of the costs and challenges associated with securing payments and adhering to PCI DSS. The PCI-validated certification also means that developers, ISVs and VARs have a powerful tool that protects merchants from card-skimming and data breaches. While EMV addresses the risks associated with card-skimming, it cannot prevent a data breach.
