NRT Technology Corp. Announces Launch of SecureSmart™

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA--(Marketwired - June 16, 2016) - NRT Technology Corp. ("NRT"), a provider of integrated ticket redemption and cash access kiosks and payment services to global casino operators, today announced its SecureSmart initiative. NRT's SecureSmart solution promotes best practices, education and awareness, driving the adoption of security products to add layers of protection to the payments process, such as end-to-end encryption, tokenization and EMV.

"On September 26, 2014, NRT announced the launch of our EMV payment processing solution at Ellis Island Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. This was the start of a long and gruelling process with the end goal of making NRT ATM and Point-of-Sale (POS) kiosks and payments infrastructure the safest and most secure solution for casino operators," said Michael Dominelli, VP Marketing and Product at NRT. "We realized that the only way to protect cardholders, casino operators and ourselves against fraud, data breaches and other threats related to payments was to commit the time and resources necessary to make our hardware, software and systems as secure as possible. At the end of the day we are making NRT and its customers less attractive targets for hackers and fraudsters, that's what it really comes down to."

NRT is doing this through the adoption of EMV, point-to-point encryption and tokenization technologies across its entire payments ecosystem, starting at the ATM, POS and QuickJack kiosks, through its communications infrastructure and onto its payments switching and processing data center platforms. "We successfully achieved PCI-DSS 3.1 compliance in April 2016. This is something I'm extremely proud of because we have heard and continue to hear negative stories from auditors and other processors about the inability of legacy systems and products to satisfy the demanding PCI 3.1 requirements," said John Dominelli, President and CEO of NRT. "As part of our push for complete end-to-end security, I personally challenged my management team to build the best payment security ecosystem in the Casino industry and I am thrilled to be able to say they have surpassed my expectations. The encryption and tokenization solution they developed is truly world class, and the best part is that deploying this solution for our casino customers will be a seamless and streamlined process."

NRT's push for end-to-end security and component hardening across all hardware, software and infrastructure platforms was achievable only because NRT builds, develops and maintains all of its own solutions. "If we had to rely on hardware providers, third party development firms, data center operators and security consultants to develop and deploy this kind of security solution I think this SecureSmart announcement would have come in 2019, not 2016," said Michael Dominelli. "We were able to make this happen because NRT is the only provider of cash access kiosks and processing services that maintains and controls its own infrastructure. Controlling our own solutions is a decision we made for this exact reason. SecureSmart is a great example of what sets NRT apart from its competitors and allows us to provide significant benefits for casino operators and their patrons."
