Madisonville, KY and Chicago (November 10, 2009) - Profile Systems Design Group, Inc., an independent Point of Sale (POS) software developer, has achieved compliance validation with the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA DSS) version 1.2 for its TransActPOS version 3.0 payment application. Trustwave, the leading provider of on-demand data security and payment card industry compliance management solutions to businesses and organizations throughout the world, performed the validation.
PA DSS applies to software vendors who develop payment applications that store, process, or transmit cardholder data as a part of payment card authorization or settlement. The annual security review consists of 14 requirements including protection of card holder data, secure passwords, protection of wireless transmissions, encryption of sensitive traffic over public networks and more.
TransActPOS is a Point of Sale solution for retail, home, hardware and lumber stores. TransActPOS can also be used at gift shops, garden centers and power equipment sales and service centers.
"We remain focused in our commitment to delivering applications that comply with evolving data security standards," says Jon R Love, III, president at Profile Systems Design Group. "TransActPOS provides retailers a PA DSS certified payment application that allows them to process credit card transactions in a secure manner and simplifies their own compliance validation with the Payment Card Industry data Security Standard (PCI DSS)."
"Validating compliance with the PA DSS demonstrates that protecting credit card data and the transaction supply chain is a critical business requirement for Profile Systems," says Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. "Using a PA DSS-validated payment application helps ensure that merchants aren't storing prohibited data, putting consumers at risk of credit card fraud."
