Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) March 07, 2012
Princeton Payment Solutions (PPS) announced today that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory guide, has named PPS’s PANPAD a winner of the 2012 Global Excellence Awards in the New Product Launch Category. The security industry celebrated its 8th Annual 2012 Global Excellence Awards in San Francisco by honoring excellence in every facet of the industry.
More than 50 judges from a broad international spectrum of the industry participated. Their average scores determined the 2012 Global Excellence Awards Finalists and Winners. Winners were announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 29, 2012 in San Francisco attended by the finalists, judges and industry peers.
The Princeton Payment Solutions PANPAD allows card data to be encrypted at the point of entry, effectively removing all order entry and research terminals from PCI scope. Many current solutions use tokenization of payment data to segregate most of your IT infrastructure from PCI scope, but order entry terminals have remained a long-standing concern. Lately, the weak security of the terminals has attracted growing security industry attention. Payment card numbers must be swiped, or typed directly, into the terminals, keeping them in scope. The PCI certified PANPAD shrinks your PCI footprint by cloaking payment card information at the terminal. PPS, which was recently acquired by FTS, will continue to press its business strategy of creating products and software to minimize your PCI scope to the maximum extent possible.
“Info Security Products Guide’s recognition of the PANPAD confirms our product for its excellence-in-class,” says Alex Chapman, Director Princeton Payment Solutions. “This industry honor is the greatest endorsement of the fact that the PANPAD is ahead of the curve when it comes to the best-of-the-best products available to provide the highest security in PCI compliance,” says Robert Nathan, President of Princeton Payment Solutions, “The PANPAD completes the PCI-DSS puzzle.”
