USA Technologies (USAT) has updated its ePort Connect service that offers its range of value-added cashless payment, telemetry and consumer engagement services for self-serve retailing industries such as vending, amusement and arcade, commercial laundry and kiosk.
The upgrade includes special enhancements such as secure card tokenisation, new capabilities designed to optimise USAT’s loyalty and prepaid programme, MORE., and new operational tools designed to provide customers additional data about the status of their connected devices.
Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council general manager, Bob Russo, said tokenisation and point-to-point encryption remove or render payment card information useless to cyber criminals, and work in concert with other PCI Standards to offer additional protection to payment card data.
USAT chairman and CEO, Stephen P Herbert, said they want their customers to know that best-in-class security measures are always top of mind as they continue to innovate their ePort Connect service platform.
"For our vending, kiosk and mobile customers, tokenization adds another level of security beyond the combination of PCI compliance, USAT’s end-to-end encryption and other levels of security USAT takes to protect the interests of our customers and their consumers," Herbert added.
