Ingenico Group, the global leader in seamless payment, today announced that its On-Guard application has been referenced as a validated Point-to-Point Encryption application by the Payment Card Industry Security Standard Council (PCI SSC), the major industry body which constantly strive to raise security requirements.
Whereas cardholder data protection is currently increasingly challenged, the On-Guard P2PE solution enables merchants to reduce their exposure to data breaches. It also restricts the scope of merchants' PCI DSS certification to the payment terminal only, leading to drastic cost reductions in both security investment and certification expenses.
The On-Guard P2PE solution is supported and certified across the complete range of Ingenico Smart Terminals, including mobile POS, and thus aligns with new security challenges and regulations for mobile devices.
This new certification further strengthens Ingenico Group' position as a leading provider of secure payment solutions.
