International Payments Services Ltd (IPS), specialists in domestic & international PCI and P2PE accredited payment solutions is pleased to announce the successful accreditation of its Point-to-Point encryption solution as having met the rigorous controls defined in the PCI Security Standards Council P2PE Standard for the protection of payment card data.
Described as a comprehensive international P2PE validated solution, the new platform is fully certified, meeting the rigorous controls defined in the PCI Security Standards Councils standard for the protection of payment card data. All payment card transactions, no matter where they originate, are processed via the same infrastructure and associated architecture, with operational support being provided 24/7. This delivers a genuine benefit to merchants, including choice of acquirers, PEDs, communications providers and other value added services whilst leaving IPS to deal with service provision, compliance, payment technology development, accreditations and service management - at an affordable cost which improves with scale.
Commenting on the achievement, Paul Milam, Customer Services Director at IPS, said, “IPS has taken a leading role in the industry and offers a compelling managed service solution enabling merchants to meet the significant challenges of achieving and maintaining PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) compliance, whilst saving significant costs. It genuinely allows merchants to accept any payment card, in any country, in any currency via any acquirer and can reduce the scope of the merchants PCI DSS assessment down to a simple SAQ.”
IPS has achieved the accreditation with an extensive range of Chip & PIN terminals (standalone and integrated), which means merchants can choose between, or mix & match, Ingenico and VeriFone terminals on the same platform providing greater choice & flexibility.
