Card type details are once again available to users! Bookkeepers everywhere have a need to know the explicit amounts paid by each type of card. But since the introduction of PCI security rules several years ago, this information was forbidden to be known by a POS system, until now. Stores that implement the new P2PE all-in-one credit card devices will once again enjoy this information at their fingertips. Continue reading

An update to Windows is required to run software newer than build 8066. Many terminals will have already installed the new .NET 4.0 Framework as a component of their Windows updates. Any machine that is not current with Windows updates, or is running an old operating system (like Windows XP) are likely in need of this update. Continue reading

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock for the past few months, you likely heard about or were directly affected by the Target credit card breach. According to press reports, hackers were able to scan computer memory as cards were being swiped, harvesting confidential credit card data directly from the POS terminals. That breach wouldn’t have been possible if point-to-point encryption had been in place.
