Hypercom Payment Software Achieves PCI PA-DSS Security Approval

Hypercom’s high security SPOS32 payment software application, versions 3.0 and 3.1, are Payment Card Industry Payment Application Data Security Standard (PCI PA-DSS) validated and available to support the company’s Optimum countertop and mobile card payment product portfolio.

“The most effective security solutions, continual innovation and a singular focus on our customers are at the centrepiece of what we do. Achieving this stringent new security level further protects sensitive cardholder data, fortifies our ability to build market share and is directly in line with our continual and historic tradition of providing rigorous protection to merchants,” said TK Cheung, vice president, global quality and security, Hypercom. “SPOS32 is our premier, feature-rich and off-the-shelf payment application for the Optimum product portfolio; it can be widely used by our customers to help bolster their payment security.”

The PCI PA-DSS is a global set of security requirements for software vendors who develop payment applications. PA-DSS compliant applications do not store prohibited data such as track data, sensitive authentication data, or PIN data, helping merchants and agents who use them to immediately mitigate compromises and support overall compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
