NCR Corporation has released the fastest, most secure version of its transaction processing solution, Authentic, which is the first major payments platform to be compliant with the PA-DSS 3.1 standard.
Authentic is an intelligent transaction-processing platform designed for today’s fast-changing
payments business, and the new release delivers more than 55 new features and improvements.
It has become the next generation payments engine of choice for retail banks, card issuers, acquirers, payment service providers, ISOs and merchants around the world. Authentic is designed to keep customers in control of their payments environments, while giving them functionally rich, secure, resilient and scalable performance across all payment channels.
This release enhances Authentic’s transaction orchestration capability by offering parallel routing to external services. Along with enhancements in the previous releases that enable the fast creation of web service interfaces, these orchestration enhancements are important for financial organizations as they publish APIs for a wide range of banking services and for omni-channel transaction processing.
Authentic’s enhanced security includes the ability to secure and encrypt different types of connections into or out of Authentic; PGP encryption of imports and exports; and the option to enforce TLS 1.2, if required. Authentic also supports SafeNet HSMs and continued support for Thales and Atalla models – increasing choice and flexibility for customers.
The new version expands on the previous card production functionality improvements, now enabling customers to more easily perform account maintenance tasks such as managing the status of an account, handling lost/stolen cards or blocking or closing an account. It can also improve the processing of card applications by enabling batch imports of cards to be processed, as well as supporting card production through easier management and handling of data.
