Hypercom Introduces HyperSafe Secure to Protect Cardholder Data

| November 05, 2008

Hypercom Corporation introduces a new solution, HyperSafe Secure, that encrypts cardholder data during transaction processing so that sensitive information is never exposed. HyperSafe Secure is specifically designed to combat and halt the growing enterprise of criminal efforts to steal unencrypted cardholder data through breaches of merchant networks, applications and servers that store and transmit sensitive cardholder data.

HyperSafe Secure will incorporate state-of-the-art MagneSafe security technology from MagTek, a supplier of electronic transaction products, that encrypts sensitive cardholder data before it leaves the terminal so the data is never in the clear until it is securely decrypted at a trusted point for authorization. HyperSafe Secure will integrate into Hypercom's products through software or hardware and will protect both swiped and hand keyed transactions.   

Hypercom's end-to-end security system uses the proven industry standard Triple DES algorithm and offers clear advantages over competitive products because data is decrypted without having to purchase custom equipment and become locked into a proprietary solution. HyperSafe Secure provides a multi-layered approach that exceeds the latest PCI requirements. In addition to encryption, HyperSafe Secure leverages a dynamic digital authentication solution that detects counterfeit credit, debit, gift and ATM cards, and stops the crime in real time. 

HyperSafe Secure will be available on Hypercom's T4200 countertop products, M4200 mobile payment platform and L4150 multi-lane device.
