Useful Info: about pci compliance


Our P2PE PCI compliance solution takes the majority of your card data out of scope for PCI DSS assessment - shifting the burden of running, maintaining and developing payment systems to keep up with the ever evolving payments market regulations across to our specialist partners, whilst realising valuable time, cost and compliance benefits for you.

Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE)

This is compelling next generation card payment technology, simplifying achievement and maintenance of PCI DSS compliance, while realising significant merchant cost savings and achieving greater choice and control. The benefits have already been recognised and adopted by the leading multinational retailer Ikea. It delivers multi-country capability using EMV scheme approved international standards deployable with acquirers across Europe and beyond, with terminal/PED messages configured for the local language.

Furthermore, PCS is the only provider of P2PE that is accredited for standalone terminals, ensuring the benefits of P2PE are not limited to just Tier 1 retailers. This means we can provide the same technology to the SME market, and because our solution does not require cardholder data capture or storage by the merchant, we can take small retailers completely out of scope of acquirer PCI compliance programmes - which are an unwelcome cost, and generally not well understood by small businesses.

This P2PE security is included with all PCS merchant accounts taking one of the Ingenico Chip & PIN terminals.
