CenPOS is now offering point-to-point encryption (P2PE) to all merchants, as part of their plethora of solutions. This technology effectively protects the credit card information on every transaction by encrypting the cardholder’s sensitive data from the moment that the card is swiped on the credit card terminal. This technology helps businesses mitigate any data mishandling responsibilities as well as reduce their PCI scope.

Currently P2PE is not mandatory; however, given the most recent data breaches it is highly encouraged that merchants adopt this solution as part of their card acceptance best practices. “This technology generates peace of mind and good will for our clients and their customers,” said Jorge Fernandez, Chairman and Co-Founder of CenPOS. “CenPOS is committed to bringing additional value add and new innovative services to our clients,” added Fernandez.

CenPOS is now rolling out this new offering to its entire client base at no additional cost. This solution does not require any additional certifications for clients using the CenPOS platform.

Global Payments says Visa drops it after breach


Global Payments says Visa drops it after breach:

Visa Inc. has dropped the card processor involved in a massive data breach from its registry of providers that meet data security standards.

Global Payments CEO Paul Garcia noted that the company continues to process Visa transactions, but that being dropped from the registry ‘could give our partners some pause that they’re doing business with someone who experienced a breach.’
