Heartland Payment Systems has partnered with PAX Technology, a provider of electronic payment terminals, to offer EMV-compliant payment terminals for merchants.
Heartland Payments will use its Heartland Secure card data security solution and comprehensive breach warranty to provide the secure EMV terminals.
The card data security solution will allow PAX to provide merchants with the highest level of security available to protect against card-present data fraud.
Heartland Secure, which integrates EMV chip card technology, Heartland E3 end-to-end encryption and tokenization, provides businesses with protection against POS intrusions, insider misuse and other data fraud by removing card data from the transaction.
The companies said that EMV chip-based smart cards and terminals are safer than credit or debit as they contain computer chips that are used to confirm each transaction.
Additionally, Heartland Payments has recently certified its PAX POSLink out-of-scope solution with the S300 signature capture PIN pad on the exchange front-end authorization system.
POSLink will eliminate card industry data standards and implement EMV without the expense and effort to develop or certify. The solution will also enable merchants to seamlessly meet EMV recommendations.
Heartland vice president of product development Michael English said: "The Heartland Secure PAX terminals are the latest development in our partnership of making security and technology available to merchants.
"The PAX POSLink semi-integrated configuration and the PAX S300 provide an exceptional solution to ISVs and VARs that are looking to reduce the complexity of payments support as well as PCI exposure."
PAX Technology president and CEO Andy Chau said: "PAX’s secure semi-integration and Heartland’s focus on security through Heartland Secure allow ISVs, VARs, and merchants to enjoy all the benefits of EMV and NFC transactions."
