Ingenico (Euronext : FR0000125346 ‐ ING), the world's leading provider of payment solutions, today announces it has been selected by VisaNet Peru, Visa's exclusive acquirer and the largest network of credit and debit card acceptance in Peru, to supply the top of the line PinPad iPP320 due its advanced anti-tampering features and PCI PTS 2.x compliance.
The initiative taken by VisaNet seeks to increase the security of its payment transaction network by replacing their current equipment PINPad i3070 with the recently launched PINPad iPP320. In partnership with its Peruvian distributor, Segres Systec, Ingenico will provide 9.000 iPP320 to the Peruvian market, in the coming weeks.
The newly launched iPP320 terminal has received the top safety certifications of the payment industry: PCI PTS 2.x (global) and ABECS (from Brazil), providing unprecedented security to adequately safeguard today's sensitive payment data, a top priority feature in the payment industry. In addition, the PINPad also has a simple, highly efficient and universal anti-theft system: a Kensington security slot, which tightens the PIN Pad's security and minimizes theft attempts.
Oscar Bello, EVP and President of the Ingenico Latin American Region stated: "Visanet Peru's initiative highlights the constant concern of the Latin American acquirers to maintain their payment networks supplied with the most current and secure technologies in the transaction payment industry; and Ingenico is continuously working to provide such technology to the market, thus our newly launched PINPad iPP320".
By combining technology and innovation, Ingenico's new solutions exceed the expectations of the retail market while also responding to major challenges: to deliver secure payment, centralize infrastructure management and improve customer relations.
