Trustwave Accredited in MasterCard's Point of Sale Terminal Security

Trustwave Approved to Perform Evaluations on Compliance with the MasterCard PTS program

CHICAGO (September 22, 2009) - Trustwave, the leading provider of on-demand data security and payment card industry compliance management solutions to businesses and organizations throughout the world, has been certified to perform compliance evaluations against MasterCard's Point of Sale Terminal Security (PTS) program. Trustwave is one of a few approved laboratories worldwide.

MasterCard's PTS program is applicable to the hardware portion of the Point-of-Sale (POS) terminal and applies to applications that transmit card data across an open Internet Protocol (IP) or wireless connection. Payment terminal manufacturers seeking PTS compliance validation engage a firm such as Trustwave to perform an evaluation similar to that of a penetration test to verify that the POS conforms to standards set forth by MasterCard.

The objective of the security evaluation program for IP-enabled POS devices is to ensure the necessary level of protection for transaction and cardholder data at merchants that use equipment that support the TCP/IP protocol suite. The security evaluation verifies that POS devices meet relevant requirements in terms of confidentiality, integrity and communicating parties' authentication. This security program complements existing security programs at MasterCard that already address merchants or POS terminals like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and PCI PIN Entry Devices (PED).

"Protecting the payment application landscape from malicious attacks is just one aspect of credit card security to which merchants must adhere," says Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. "Trustwave had to pass a skills test and secure its testing lab in order to gain approval to perform evaluations on compliance. We are very proud to have been certified by MasterCard and are happy to offer it as a service to our customers."
