UL is pleased to announce that the Collis Brand Test Tool, developed by UL's Transaction Security team, has passed qualification by MasterCard for its new ATM module.
The last couple of years, terminals with motorized readers became smarter detecting possible fraud. For that reason it became more and more difficult to let them accept a wired probe during testing. Our new solution comes with programmable cards for motorized readers.
The new process of testing will make use of these cards in the following way. First, the cards will be personalized in a few seconds to behave exactly like a formal MasterCard or Visa test card. Subsequently, the test case from the scheme's test plans will be executed, exactly in the way the Collis Brand Test tool users are used to. After execution, the logging from the card will be read and included in the verdict of the test. The tool will provide the same outstanding level of step-by-step guidance to the user.
In addition to that, the Collis Brand Test Tool has the ability to simulate any test card, both contact and contactless. Using card simulation takes away the need for physical cards that can get corrupted or lost. The Collis Brand Test Tool provides clear user guidance and it is fully aligned with the Test Specifications of the seven major worldwide payment schemes. It also provides full insight in the technical details of the communication between the card and the terminal on the one side and between the terminal and the network on the other side. This allows a tester to gain detailed insight in the behaviour of the system from end-to-end.
"UL continues to develop high quality test tools for the payment market by improving and expanding the Collis Test Tool portfolio. The ATM module was desired by our customers for a long time, so we are very excited we can now offer this module. We are confident that our customers will benefit from this qualification as it will help them with reducing the time to market and increasing their confidence in their test results," adds Dirk Jan van den Heuvel, Managing Director of UL's Transaction Security service line.
Collis, together with RFI Global and Witham Laboratories, was recently rebranded to UL .The Collis test tool portfolio will remain its strong brand and will continue to be further developed and expanded.
