Thales says that Verifone now uses Thales nShield hardware security modules (HSMs) for its end-to-end payment encryption solution – VeriShield Total Protect – to provide robust, high speed, scalable crypto to protect card holder data, whether transmitted from a card or mobile device, right from the moment of capture.
The protection of payment card data by encrypting from Verifone’s secure payment
terminals all the way to the Thales HSMs reduces the number of applicable Payment Card Industry (PCI) controls, simplifying the deployment environment for the merchant.
“Verifone’s strategy is to develop and deploy “best in class” payment solutions and services that meet or exceed global security standards and help our clients securely accept electronic payments across all channels of commerce,” says Joe Majka, Chief Security Officer, Verifone.
“We selected Thales HSMs to provide robust security, unmatched performance and superior scalability across our payment security platforms, protecting encryption keys from virtually any attack. This helps Verifone to continue reducing merchants’ growing exposure to data breaches and cyber criminals and more aggressively safeguard consumer information through the multi-layered approach to security that Verifone is known for, which goes well beyond the requirements of PCI DSS.”
