CUPERTINO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 22, 2013) - Voltage Security®, the world leader in data-centric security, today announced a new partnership with Gertec, provider of global commercial and banking automation solutions. Gertec will integrate Voltage SecureData Payments™ encryption technology into the Gertec PPC 910 PIN pad for electronic funds transfer (EFT). The Gertec PPC 910 supports EMV and is also PTS 2.1 certified.
"Voltage Security's encryption expertise is unparalleled and we are pleased to be partnering on this world-class solution that allows us to provide new freedom to our customers and, in turn, their customers -- freedom from worry of unsecured payment transactions," said Jorge Ribeiro Pereira, president, Gertec.
"Based on the success of this project, we plan to continue to partner with Voltage on future integrations," Pereira added.
Gertec has 23 years of experience in commercial and banking automation, manufacturing encrypting PIN pads, price checkers, programmable keyboards and kiosk keyboards, as well the development of customized solutions. The company has eight product lines and over 50 models for point of sales, supermarkets, bookstores, web terminals, parking lot control and lotteries, among other applications. The company's products are sold in its native Brazil and around the world including the USA, South Africa, Peru, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Uruguay and Paraguay.
"Our technology partnership with Gertec means that a broader range of global payment processors will now have the option of providing their customers with the highest level of transaction security. This is particularly important in countries like Brazil, which is one of the world's fastest growing economies but is challenged with PCI data security, as well as other multinational deployments," said George Rice, director business development, payments, Voltage Security.
Voltage SecureData Payments provides complete point-to-point encryption (P2PE) for retail payment transactions, and with tokenization from Voltage SecureData Enterprise enables PCI scope reduction without the massive IT disruptions traditionally associated with encryption.
The Voltage SecureData Payments POS SDK can be implemented with any mobile or POS devices and payment processing systems and is already integrated into leading payment card reading devices and PIN pads, offering merchants the flexibility to support the hardware of their choice.
More than 1,000 global customers across all industries including the Fortune 500, major retailers, banks and payment processors look to Voltage Security to seamlessly protect data while ensuring it remains accessible and usable, despite security threats and increased risk from data breaches.
