Hypercom Corporation (NYSE: HYC) announced today that its PCI compliant S9 PIN Pad has received Apacs (Association of Payments And Clearing Services) Common Criteria accreditation in the UK.
The new accreditation and listing on the APACS website replaces the previous accreditation of the non-PCI model. The device can be connected to Hypercom's Optimum T4200 terminals, providing a dedicated customer interface for cardholders to insert their card and enter their PIN number with a high level of convenience and security.
In addition to achieving APACS accreditation, PCI PED approval and EMV Level 1 certification, Hypercom's S9 meets a full range of industry requirements, supporting Master/Session DES, Triple DES and DUKPT key management. The device features a distinctive ergonomic design, with large color-coded keys, and an easy-to-read backlit display. With both chip and magnetic stripe card reader options, it can be used in many different retail environments.
"With this accreditation, Hypercom strengthens its position as a leading supplier of payment solutions to the UK market," said Dave Millener, Managing Director, Hypercom UK and Ireland. "We have products to meet every possible card payment scenario and enhance the purchasing experience for merchants and cardholders."
