The key to the success of YESpay’s fully EMV Chip & PIN, PCI-DSS (Level 1) and PA-DSS certified EMBOSS payment service is its unique Cloud computing architecture, which delivers its reliability, security and service quality.
(PRWEB UK) 29 September 2011
YESpay International proudly announced that EMBOSS(TM), its payment gateway, has once again reached a new operational record of 2 YEARS of uninterrupted service providing 100% availability of credit and debit card authorisation processing through its dual data centers!
Dr. Chandra Patni, CEO and CTO at YESpay emphasises the significance of this new achievement as “the enormous task of adopting dual-centre and cloud-computing card payment service architecture by YESpay was completed in September 2009. This initiative has proved to be an excellent investment by us for our global merchant community as this initiative has now led to over 2-years of NON-STOP EMV chip & PIN card payments authorisation service provided to our ever growing merchant base still expanding at over 40% annually.”
Offered as a SaaS (Software as a Service) model, the key to the success of YESpay’s fully EMV Chip & PIN, PCI-DSS (Level 1) and PA-DSS certified EMBOSS payment service is its unique ‘Cloud A2 computing architecture’, which delivers its reliability, security and service quality.
Reliability and Performance – YESpay’s Service Availability
For two years now, YESpay’s EMBOSS Cloud computing load sharing gives 99.99% availability (practically 100%) even during maintenance and upgrades, and additionally multiple load sharing data centres provide auto Disaster Recovery (DR) capability. Hence, YESpay is utilizing the cloud computing revolution to impart a fully resilient and “ready for future” payment services to its customers helping them adapt and excel in the ever changing card payment market scenario. With its 4 global data centers, located in London (UK), Toronto (Canada) and San Francisco (USA), YESpay proves to be the most resilient and stable EMV payment service in the UK and North America.
“One of the most critical elements of retail is the ability to take card payments securely and reliably,” as explains Neil Crawshaw, Commercial Manager at Itim Limited who is “delighted to say that for the past two years, the uninterrupted service provided by YESpay’s EMBOSS solution has been a major benefit to our customers and reduced the number of calls to our Service Desk.” Geoff Smith, Head of IT, at The Works remembers an anecdote shared with SVP Operations and Client Services at YESpay: “In October 2009 after one month of 100% availability I said to Nigel Exton that I would be impressed when YESpay could boast of 18 months of uninterrupted service. I was so convinced it wouldn’t happen that a bet was agreed. I now have to finally admit that I have lost the bet!”
Since YESpay is responsible for storing the cardholder data on behalf of its clients, the uniqueness of its managed architecture ensures high levels of security. YESpay has maintained full certification for EMBOSS to PCI-DSS (level 1) standards since 2006 as mandated by Visa and MasterCard. Besides, in order to bring even more confidence to merchants and POS software vendors, YESpay is now also PA-DSS certified. Together, YESpay’s PCI-DSS and PA-DSS certifications ensure that in all cases, the point-of-sale software is freed from PA-DSS certification and helps retailers save up to 60% of the PCI-DSS accreditation cost. YESpay’s commitment to security does not stop here, as it supports as a free feature tokenisation wherein “tokens” are linked to credit/debit card details within EMBOSS compliant environment and then provided to merchants. YESpay also supports point-to-point encryption from the card acceptance PIN pad devices all the way to its EMBOSS data centers.
Comprehensive Payment Service
In addition to its reliability and security, EMBOSS(TM) offers a wide range of unique benefits:
- Multi-Acquirer (generically) pre-accredited in over 35 countries across Europe and North America.
- Multi-channel payment services for Retail, Kiosk, Hospitality, MOTO and e-commerce.
- Integration made easy using a simple to integrate payment interface.
- Real time transactions reports can be directly accessed and downloaded using StoreManagerTM via EMBOSS, making reconciliation fast and simple.

- No capital investment required for the merchant, just operational low on-going monthly fees.
For this special occasion, Nigel Exton, SVP Operations and Client Services at YESpay shares these final summarizing words: “YESpay continues to provide first class uninterrupted service incorporating utilising our full cloud computing architecture. This has allowed us to also implement some major changes on a server by server basis, whilst still maintain 100% availability. Our Retailers now take this level of service for granted, but our team of skilled technicians monitor the servers 24*7 to ensure that the service is maintained.”
