VeriFone has launched VX Evolution, the next generation of its VX payment solutions family with enhancements including integrated contactless and end-to-end encryption. The four systems – VX 520, VX 680, VX 820 and VX 820 DUET – are designed to Payment Card Industry PIN Entry Device (PCI PED) 2.0 specifications, all featuring performance with ARM11 advanced processors and large standard memory configurations.
The VX Evolution series represents a complete line of new payments solutions on one architectural platform that supports varied merchant environments, reflects changing market needs and is designed for extended life. The four new systems are powered by the Verix architecture to ensure backward compatibility and eliminate any need for retraining of sales, support and deployment resources.
“Verix is the most trusted payment architecture in the world, representing more than 8 million devices,” said Paul Rasori, VeriFone senior vice president, marketing. “VX Evolution continues to demonstrate our commitment to protect customer investments in our systems and solutions. We’ve taken the best of the proven VX line and created a complete new family of forward-looking and backward-compatible solutions that meet tomorrow’s challenges while supporting existing applications.”
