Ingenico Group first to obtain PCI-PTS v5 certification for latest retail POS

Ingenico Group (Euronext: FR0000125346-ING), the global leader in seamless payment, today announced that its new Lane retail terminal to be released in 2017 at the NRF conference, has been the first to receive the PCI PTS v5 certification.

This certification, granted by the PCI Security Standards Council, ensures the strongest protection for card holders' payment data by requiring more robust security controls for payment devices, to prevent physical tampering and the insertion of malware that can compromise card data during payment transactions.

'We are very proud to be the first to obtain the latest Payment Card Industry standard, thus confirming Ingenico's leadership in secured payments,' said Jacques Guérin, EVP Smart Terminals & Mobile Solutions. 'This global certification positions our payment terminals at the cutting edge of security requirements and demonstrates the quality of our offer for our customers and our partners across the world. Our Tetra range, which boasts a very high security level based on elliptic curve cryptography, was PCI PTS v4 certified. The PCI PTS v5 acknowledgement represents a step up for an already future-proof solution.'
