Multi-Systems, Inc. (MSI), supplier of hotel technology and property management systems, announces compliance validation of its proprietary software, CC Direct in conjunction with WinPM version 2.0, with Visa's Payment Application Best Practices (PABP).
The application - which provides connections for authorization and batch processing - replaces the Credit Track program that MSI customers were using in previous versions. As a result, MSI is among the property management technology vendors currently offering a payment gateway validated PABP compliant.
Trustwave, provider of information security and compliance management solutions to businesses and organizations throughout the world, performed the PABP validation.
Visa's PABP applies to software vendors who develop payment applications that store, process, or transmit cardholder data as part of authorization or settlement. The annual on-site security review consists of 14 PABP requirements, including protection of card holder data, secure passwords, protection of wireless transmissions, encryption of sensitive traffic over public networks and more.
MSI demonstrated its compliance by submitting to this rigorous review of its CC Direct payment application with WinPM version 2.0, as required by Visa and the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
CC Direct captures credit card data via multiple points of entry - including credit card numbers from interface points - and stores them securely. A token is used by the software to access the credit card data appropriately for processing, based on security roles.
