Equinox Payments, NCR Deliver EMV-Certified Solution

Equinox Payments and NCR recently announced the availability of a payment solution that helps increase security and enables EMV-certified technology in their retail POS systems. The Equinox L5000 series payment devices are certified on NCR’s Connected Payments platform — a SaaS payment solution — eliminating the need for retailers and solutions providers to go through the complex and lengthy EMV Level 3 end-to-end certification process.

Customers with existing L5200/L5300 devices can enable EMV immediately via NCR’s Connected Payments platform. The devices utilize Connected Payments’ ability to support point-to-point encryption (P2PE), so that actual card data never enters the POS, reducing the complexities associated with PCI compliance validation.

Payment amounts are passed from the POS to the L5000 terminal, which encrypts the card data using Secure Reading and Exchange of Data (SRED) technology. The Connected Payments gateway routes transactions to the processor of choice for authorization and reports the results back to the POS for transaction completion and receipt printing.

PaymentsEdge Advisory Services for Integrated Payments will assist resellers and ISVs with their employee management, leadership development, change management, succession planning, shifting to the recurring revenue business model, and more.
