Keeping your customers’ financial information safe is paramount in today’s digital age(*). This is especially true for businesses that accept credit card payments. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of regulations designed to ensure the safe storage, processing, and transmission of cardholder data. Here at PaymentVision, we understand the importance of PCI compliance, and why adhering to the latest standards is essential for your business.

What’s Changing in 2024?

One key update for 2024 concerns the PCI PIN Transaction Security (PCI PTS) standards. PCI PTS is a specific framework within the PCI DSS that focuses on the evaluation and approval of payment terminals. Unfortunately, support for older terminals like the iPP350 and ISC250 from PaymentVision is ending due to two important factors:

Manufacturer End of Support: These terminals are no longer being manufactured or serviced by the original company, meaning critical security updates and bug fixes are no longer available.

PCI PTS v4 Expiration: The current version of PCI PTS (v4) is expiring, and these older terminals are not compatible with the current PTS and future versions (up to v6).

Why Upgrading Matters

Continuing to use non-compliant terminals puts your business at significant risk. Here’s why upgrading to PCI-approved terminals is crucial:

  • Enhanced Security: Newer terminals incorporate the latest security features to better protect sensitive cardholder data.
  • Reduced Liability: In the unfortunate event of a data breach, businesses using non-compliant terminals may face increased financial penalties.
  • Customer Confidence: Customers value their financial security. Upgrading to PCI-compliant terminals demonstrates your commitment to safeguarding their information.
