Trustwave, a provider of data security and payment card industry compliance management solutions, has been certified to perform compliance evaluations against MasterCard’s point-of-sale terminal security (PTS) programme.
MasterCard’s PTS programme is applicable to the hardware portion of the point-of-sale (POS) terminal and applies to applications that transmit card data across an open Internet protocol (IP) or wireless connection. The objective of the security evaluation program for IP-enabled POS devices is to ensure the necessary level of protection for transaction and cardholder data at merchants that use equipment that support the TCP/IP protocol suite. The security evaluation verifies that POS devices meet relevant requirements in terms of confidentiality, integrity and communicating parties’ authentication.
“Protecting the payment application landscape from malicious attacks is just one aspect of credit card security to which merchants must adhere,” said Robert McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. “Trustwave had to pass a skills test and secure its testing lab in order to gain approval to perform evaluations on compliance.”
