Dual Key Injection Facilities (KIF) Provide Immediate Hardware Compliance and Distribution Capabilities
POS Portal, the nation’s leading distributor of secure payment devices, announced today that the PCI Security Standards Council has listed POS Portal as a Point-to-Point Encryption Version 2 Key Injection Facility. As a component provider, POS Portal provides logistics and distribution of Secure Payment Devices, this new validation means that POS Portal can now offer Solution Providers an immediate way to streamline their operations and help their merchant clients to achieve PCI DSS compliance. With two Key Injection Facilities, POS Portal deploys devices direct to businesses nationwide.
“Our facilities, technology, and controls offer Solution Providers turnkey access to market-ready systems of custody monitoring, device configuration, and key management” said Evamarie Ghiggeri, VP of Client Services at POS Portal “We’re the only ones in North America to offer this type of solution, if P2PE compliance is part of your scope, there is no faster way to market.”
POS Portal’s successful completion of their P2PE assessment underscores its commitment to strong security requirements as they pertain to payment device hardware including hardware encryption, chain of custody controls, and Hardware Security Module (HSM) key management.
Included on PCI SSC’s list as a Key Injection Facility, POS Portal is a P2PE Component Provider whose services can be used by P2PE Solution Providers. This P2PE validation means that POS Portal can now offer the first market-ready solution of its kind.
