Thales secures mobile point-of-sale solutions for Mint Payments


Thales logoThales and Mint Payments Limited have announced that Thales payShield hardware security modules (HSMs) provide high assurance encryption and key management to secure Mint Payments’ mobile payments solutions.

Thales payShield HSMs are designed specifically for the payment industry securing card issuing and payment processing applications. Mint Payments offers a complete and modular solution for mobile card acceptance, including a mobile payments platform, mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution and developer toolkits. Together with payShield HSMs, Mint Payments is able to deliver a proven bank-grade payments infrastructure that meets PCI, EMV and card scheme standards and certifications.

Matt Challingsworth, head of product at Mint Payments says: “Thales’ long standing experience with payment system security and its proven integration with our card readers safeguarded our development risk and enabled fast delivery to market for our products. The Thales payShield software had all the functions and flexibility we required so we didn’t need to build custom functionality. This simple integration enabled us to deliver live deployments of market leading mPOS features within weeks rather than months resulting in our ability to expand card acceptance in a flexible and secure way and deliver clear benefits for customers.”

Cindy Provin, president Thales e-Security Inc., says: “The proliferation of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets not only gives consumers more choice, but also dramatically expands the payments ecosystem. But these new processes create new security vulnerabilities – with untrusted devices communicating over untrusted networks. As a payment technology leader, Thales is working with innovators such as Mint Payments to deliver the same high levels of security to the mobile world as have become commonplace in the traditional in-store fixed terminal environment .”
