REALSEC strengthens the security of its HSM with PCI PTS v3.0 Certification
With this new certification, REALSEC provides additional security for encryption operations for financial and methods of payment sector.
REALSEC’s HSM (Hardware Security Module) is aligned to the highest security standards and requirements with the upgrade of its PCI PTS HSM version 2.0 certification to version PCI PTS HSM 3.0 according to the criteria required by the international security body PCI Security Standars Council (“PCI SSC”) defined by the consortium of payment card franchisers (VISA, MasterCard, Discover, JCB and AMEX).
This recent certification is a further endorsement of security in both encryption and signature operations carried out by REALSEC’s HSM, contributing to greater security in the management and custody of keys for data protection and minimizing the risks of fraud associated with the use of payment cards in online transactions, while complying with the regulations in this field.
This new certification also guarantees that our HSM Cryptosec-DEKATON meets the requirements set by PCI PTS of PCI SSC, based on the guidelines established in the PCI PIN Transaction Security Requirements manual.
With this PCI Certification upgrade, REALSEC’s HSM is at the forefront of HSM solutions for encryption critical assets and transactions in highly regulated markets such as traditional banking, Fintech, neobanks and other financial players.
Therefore, with this new certification we extend the security requirements demanded in the audits, since PCI HSM PTS 2.0 is valid until 2022, and with the new PCI 3.0 certification REALSEC is ready to cover all the security requirements and demands that will soon be required by financial institutions, methods of payment services companies and the retail sector.
