Payment processing firm Heartland Payment Systems has entered an alliance with Verifone for providing merchants with enhanced security and EMV-ready payment processing.
Heartland will make available Verifone’s EMV and NFC-enabled VX 520 payment terminal and VX 805 PIN pad with Heartland Secure E3 end-to-end encryption and tokenization.
The initiative is aimed at offering merchants a rigorous payment security and an easy migration to EMV as the mandated liability shift approaches.
Verifone said that its VX Evolution line will support contact and contactless transactions with advanced security and reliability.
Heartland chairman and CEO Robert O Carr said: "A renewed alliance between Heartland and Verifone ensures merchants have access to the most secure and flexible payments solutions on the market today.
"Verifone’s popular VX terminals are both Heartland Secure-certified and support E3 encryption, providing merchants with an extensive range of payment device options."
Verifone CEO Paul Galant said: "Providing merchants the flexibility to easily accept new forms of payment and effectively protect customer data is just one example of Heartland’s unwavering commitment to its clients’ success."
