Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) May 30, 2014
The GT4 touch screen platform from Cirque Corporation has been found to meet the latest payment industry security requirements: PCI PTS 4.0. This continues Cirque’s long tradition of providing unique secure input solutions to the payment industry. All new payment terminals must now meet PTS 4.0. By utilizing Cirque technology, terminal manufactures can ensure that their touch screens or capacitive PIN pads can meet these new requirements. This speeds up device certification and time to market for customers utilizing Cirque technology.
Cirque contracts with independent accredited PCI laboratories to perform technology evaluations whenever new PCI requirements are released. Because secure touch screens can be used for sensitive PIN entry, it is essential that GT4 meets the high standard for PIN data protection. A white paper from the PCI laboratory is available that describes how GT4 meets and exceeds the PCI PTS requires for PIN entry. To obtain a copy of this white paper, please contact Cirque.
In addition to SecureSense data protection, GT4 offers a complete feature-set for next generation secure terminals like PEDs, ATMs and other secure devices. For signature capture, GT4 supports passive untethered fine-point stylus tracking. For high-speed forensic quality signature capture, GT4 supports the Cirque XPen solution. The ability to sense through thick cover glass and function in harsh environments makes GT4 ideal for demanding retail environments or outdoor use. In addition to these unique features GT4 provides modern touch performance like fast multi-point tracking and strong immunity to interference from electrical noise.
"It is critical that our solutions meet the latest regulations of the payment industry," says Ethan Trump, Cirque Marketing Manager for Secure Solutions. "Cirque has very unique product offerings for companies that need secure touch input, and we are pleased to continue that tradition with the GT4 platform."
