Ingenico's New iSC2xx Series Signature Capture Terminals Meet PCI SSC's Stringent PIN Transaction Security Device (PCI PTS 2.x) Requirements

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwire - January 4, 2011) - Ingenico, the global leader in secure transaction and payment solutions, announced today that its iSC2xx series signature capture devices have received approval for being in compliance with PCI Security Standards Council's (PCI SSC) PIN Transaction security standards. The entire family of the iSCxx devices will be showcased at the 100th Annual National Retail Federation's (NRF) Big Show in New York next week (January 10-11, 2011).

The iSC2xx features industry leading versatility for signature capture payment solutions and security. Built on Ingenico's new Telium 2 platform, it also offers retailers unmatched transaction speed and the full range of payment choices, including:

  • Power -- all Telium terminals utilize a dual processor design. This design ensures dedicated processing power where it's needed, enabling merchants to open a new world for dynamic value-add applications and promotions.

  • Architecture -- The Telium 2 software platform is 100% backwards compatible with Telium 1, enabling the same software to run on all products, ensuring existing vendors are not inconvenienced.

  • Security -- Dynamic tamper detection, part of the Telium 2 platform, enables precise security breach detection by identifying the specific sensor that has been activated when a breach occurs, expediting both the repair and breach investigation phases.

"For more than 30 years, Ingenico has been known for providing superior secure solutions for merchants worldwide. Certification of the iSC2xx by the PCI SSC shows Ingenico's continuous commitment to the highest level of security," said Christopher Justice, President of Ingenico, North America. "Building on our solid base of innovative technology and security expertise, the new Telium 2 platform reduces our customers' exposure to fraud by protecting their brand and keeping their investments secure."

The Ingenico iSC2xx devices are available for distribution in Q1 2011.
