/n software Announces PCI Security Standards PA-DSS 1.2 Validation for All Payment Processing Components.

Certified PA-DSS validation for /n software E-Payment Integrator, Paymentech Integrator, TSYS Integrator, and FDMS Integrator.

June 6th 2011, Research Triangle Park, NC - /n software inc. (www.nsoftware.com), a leading provider of professional Internet development tools and components, today announced completion of PCI Security Standards Council PA-DSS 1.2 validation for all Credit Card transaction processing component products including E-Payment Integrator, Paymentech Integrator, TSYS Integrator, and FDMS Integrator.

PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard) is the global security standard created by the PCI Security Standards Council. The goal of PA-DSS is to help software vendors and others develop secure payment applications that do not store prohibited data, such as full magnetic stripe, CVV2 or PIN data, and ensure their payment applications support compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). PA-DSS represents a specific set of requirements that a system must meet if it is used to process credit card transactions. An independent assessor, approved by the PCI SSC, must audit each system and assign a "pass" or "fail" to the application. Those that pass are put on the official list of PA-DSS-compliant applications.

"Card data security is critically important for payment processing solutions, and successfully completing PA-DSS 1.2 validation provides our customers with assurance that our components have met stringent PCI Security Standards," said Eric Madariaga, VP of Marketing. "Our investment in PA-DSS validation provides our customers with a tremendous advantage when building new payment processing applications or integrating secure processing into existing solutions."
