Hypercom achieves PCI PTS 2.1 security approval


Hypercom has announced that its Optimum T4200-2.0 countertop and M4200-2.0 mobile product lines have achieved PCI PTS 2.1 certification, formerly known as PED. Hypercom claims its countertop and mobile terminal product family is the first among the top three electronic payment providers to achieve this standard.

The certification covers the company’s fixed countertop and mobile payment terminals sold in markets throughout Europe, including M4230-2.0 GPRS and M4240-2.0 Bluetooth mobile card payment terminals. These products include additional features such as USB host and client, Secure Digital card reader, extra serial ports and space-saving ergonomics.

Each Optimum terminal also incorporates Hypercom’s X509 public key infrastructure HyperSafe Secure security layer to protect the terminal and applications from hacking and malware attacks.
