Hypercom Corporation announced today that its 32-bit multi-application Optimum T4200 and M4200 countertop and mobile payment terminals have received APACS (Association of Payments And Clearing Services) Common Criteria accreditation in the UK.
The new accreditation and listing on the APACS website covers the Optimum T4200 terminals with options for dial, IP and GPRS connectivity, as well as the M4240 Bluetooth and M4230 GPRS mobile models, all with integrated smart card readers.
With APACS accreditation for its Optimum products, Hypercom strengthens its position as a leading supplier of payment solutions to the UK market, and expects to sell at least 2,000 units by the end of this year.
The Optimum countertop and mobile series has already received PCI PED security approval, MasterCard Worldwide Payment Terminal Security approval for IP and wireless communication and EMV Level 1 & 2 certifications for chip card transactions. All terminals in the family share the same application development toolkit and user interface, enabling business applications written for one product to be quickly transferred to other products in the range, minimizing time to market.
"This accreditation allows the large scale deployment of this well received and highly acclaimed product range," said Dave Millener, Managing Director, Hypercom UK and Ireland. "Our T4200 countertop and M4200 mobile terminals give customers simple and reliable point-of-sale solutions that can be deployed in any end-use scenario regardless of communications needs."
