In recent months, many retailers have reported security breaches in their payment systems. It should therefore come as no surprise that 63% of retailers point to payment security as their top priority for 2015 (as reported in Boston Retail Partners' 2015 POS/Customer Engagement Survey).

 

Whether using P2P (Point-to-Point) encryption, tokenization, or both - most retailers quoted in the survey have either already implemented or are planning to implement payment security measures by the end of 2015. Factor in the October 2015 milestone for implementing EMV, and it becomes obvious that payment security will be in the spotlight this coming year.

 

Offering exactly these high priority security measures, NCR Connected Payments reduces the foot print of Payment card data from the retailers’ environment. Even better – it offers retailers the architectural flexibility they need to comply with PCI and EMV and embrace innovative payment types.
