Intellitix has obtained Common Criteria EAL3+ for its Intellipay brand, which puts it into an elite group of IT products recognised by 26 countries around the globe such as Australia, UK, USA, France, Japan, the Netherlands and Germany.
The rating means that Intellipay (Intellitix's proprietary cashless payment system) is now officially certified as being the most secure closed loop cashless system on the market.
Common Criteria is an international standard for computer security and its EAL3+ rating requires a very high standard of both software and hardware. Other companies to have achieved the 3+ rating include Apple (for its Mac OS X system), IBM, Microsoft, Linux, Symantec, Phillips and Cisco. Intellipay is unique in being the only system of its kind in the world to have achieved this level of certification.
"EAL3+ gives our clients further peace of mind that Intellipay is not just the most innovative cashless payment system on the live event market, but also the most secure," says Intellitix CEO Serge Grimaux. "We had hoped to gain the EAL3 rating, but to be awarded the 3+ is truly fantastic."
Included in the criteria for the rating are tests that the system and hardware used is fully functional; safe and stable; homologated (officially approved); usable by trained operators without the need for professional coders; and the data contained in its reports are valid, real and complete.
