GREENSBORO, N.C. -- The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) validated the Gilbarco Veeder-Root Passport point-of-sale (POS) system's Enhanced Dispenser Hub (EDH) V01.XX, included with Passport Version 8.02, as compliant with the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), the company reported.
"Passport's breakthrough architecture isolates the PCI system requirements from the value-added POS functions that help retailers compete and become more profitable," said Mikey Kindler, director of POS marketing for Gilbarco Veeder-Root. "This unique design means retailers get valuable new features faster and have a competitive advantage for the long term. Any future changes to PA-DSS requirements can be handled efficiently without impacting the POS functionality roadmap."
Passport application software, which will be released for the Chevron, Concord (Generics, Gulf, Sinclair and Valero), ExxonMobil, NBS (Cenex) and Shell networks over the coming months, are now included on the PCI SSC's List of Validated Payment Applications.
The list identifies payment applications that have been audited by an independent assessor, found to be compliant with the industry's most stringent set of comprehensive standards designed to protect consumer card and PIN data, then approved by the PCI SSC. These applications prevent storage of sensitive data, such as full magnetic stripe, CVV2 or PIN data, use designated data encryption methods, require strong passwords, and other protections.
