ControlScan Introduces PaySafe Connect for Secure, PCI-Compliant Payments at Standalone Terminals

ATLANTA, April 05, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ControlScan, a leader in managed security and compliance solutions that help secure networks and protect payment card data, announces the release of PaySafe Connect, a managed security service that helps retailers using standalone payment terminals secure their systems in compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

Standalone terminals are broadly deployed in large numbers, and businesses using them are required to annually self-attest to their PCI compliance using the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) B-IP. PaySafe Connect gives SAQ B-IP retailers a simple and cost-effective way to meet firewall requirements and strengthen their security posture.

“PaySafe Connect gives retailers secure, redundant connectivity for their critical point-of-sale applications and devices,” said Mark Carl, CEO, ControlScan. “It’s an affordable and reliable approach to help maintain PCI compliance by securing the flow of payment transactions. Plus, PaySafe Connect ensures that payment transactions continue uninterrupted when broadband fails.”

PaySafe Connect benefits include:

  • Keeps payment transactions secure and terminals up-and-running;
  • Provides PCI DSS compliance for standalone payment terminals;
  • Applies security policies for both broadband and cellular connectivity;
  • Eliminates manual backup processes and lost sales; and
  • Reduces excess dial lines and slow connections.
