QS/1 Receives PA-DSS v3.1 Certification

QS/1 is pleased to announce it has received certification under the latest Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) version 3.1. PA-DSS is the definitive data standard used to provide safety through payment applications.

“Too many times we heard about retailers dealing with massive security breaches that compromise credit card data,” said Sonny Anderson. “Taking the steps to certify on the new 3.1 standard puts QS/1’s point-of-sale (POS) system at the forefront of credit card security.”

To certify with PA-DSS, point-of-sale vendors must develop a secure payment application that does not allow storage of prohibited information, such as magnetic stripe, CVV or PIN data while also adhering to all the industry mandates for the secure handling of credit card data. Even with the new chip-and-pin cards, the new PA-DSS standard certification further protects cardholders.

QS/1’s PA-DSS certification encompasses many new technological features in its POS system that will further enhance merchant security. In addition to certification for processing the new chip-and-pin cards using the current EMV standards, it also includes the use of end-to-end encryption for the transmission of card data along with the tokenization of card data for customers who must store credit card data for recurring charges. 

“Another convenience for tech-savvy customers is that Apple Pay and Google Wallet are now supported and can be used to make payments,” Anderson added.
