Dresser® Wayne®’s iX™ Pay Secure Payment Goes Above and Beyond PCI Compliance to Help Retailers Reduce Costs
Austin, TX (September 22, 2008) – Building upon its long history of pay-at-the-pump leadership, Dresser® Wayne®, a global innovator of retail fuel dispensers and technologies, is helping retailers cost-effectively meet new and upcoming Payment Card Industry (PCI) payment security regulations with the iX™ Pay secure payment solution. As the only outdoor payment solution certified to the current and most stringent version of PCI payment security standards, Version 2.0, iX Pay secure payment provides fuel retailers long-term investment protection. Unlike competitive solutions, it is certified for deployment beyond the year 2014 and is the only solution upgradeable to forthcoming Unattended Payment Terminal (UPT) regulations.
“We know that meeting new security regulations can be a costly prospect for our customers,” explains Tim Weston, product manager of Payment Technologies. “Our approach to PCI compliance has been to provide industry leading security while supporting retailer profitability. So we’ve designed a solution that protects retailers’ investments by being configurable to meet both todays and upcoming compliance requirements while delivering expanded functionality.”
Already deployed in a number of global environments, Dresser Wayne’s iX Pay secure payment offers retailers a way to easily meet January 2009 PCI Encrypting PIN Pad (EPP) regulation deadlines. “In addition to being available as a factory-installed option for new dispensers, it is simple to retrofit into existing Dresser Wayne and selected Tokheim dispensers. And being compatible with the existing dispenser protocol, its modular design allows retailers to purchase the exact security configuration they need now with the flexibility to add other security and business-enhancing capabilities later,” Weston adds.
iX Pay secure payment includes many features that are not available in competitive solutions, including certified unauthorized removal protection and customizable function keys. What’s more, iX Pay secure payment encrypts data from the moment it is entered into the keypad rather than within vulnerable electronics as found on some of today’s solutions from other companies. It also adheres to TDES/DUKPT encryption standards and features full-travel numeric keys that help prevent the use of keypad overlays thieves sometimes use to skim valuable financial data.
In addition to investment protection, iX Pay secure payment offers additional profit-enhancing benefits. It includes several business-building tools such as larger display screen options for enhanced marketing and the award-winning iX Technology Platform that supports dynamic modules such as iX Media digital merchandising, iSense™ remote diagnostics, iDPOS™ in- dispenser POS and Fusion™ universal site control. “Retailers can easily adapt to security regulations while adding enhanced management, marketing and maintenance capabilities to their forecourt,” Weston explains.
Weston will be speaking about the ways in which PEI distributors can help fuel retailers establish PCI compliance at the Petroleum Equipment Institute Convention during the NACS Show on Monday, October 6 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. He will be one of the featured panel speakers during the general session, “Preparing your company and customers for PCI compliance.”
