Streamline, a European card payment processor, has partnered with Transaction Network Services (TNS) to provide merchants with faster payment processing. Streamline is using the TNS Secure SSL Gateway, an IP point-of-sale (POS) terminal solution, to provide authenticated payment exchange between card payment terminals and the Streamline processing platforms.
The solution offers additional security features beyond the minimum requirements mandated by Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), to provide a secure high-speed solution that enables Streamline’s merchants to benefit from faster payment processing, shorter queues and costs savings where dedicated dial lines can be removed.
Fintan Byrne, TNS’ vice president and general manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “The TNS Secure SSL Gateway has been built to meet the stringent security and availability requirements of customers such as Streamline and we are delighted to be appointed to deliver this service. It is a testament to our collaborative working relationship with Streamline, which allows us to work together to design and deliver innovative IP technology solutions that do more than just meet the minimum PCI DSS requirements.”
