MYPINPAD secures PCI SSC certification for iOS devices

MYPINPAD (MPP), a UK-based payments authentication solutions provider, has obtained Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council (SSC) certification for iOS devices.

In a statement, the company said that it received the certification for its “iOS Software based PIN entry on a Commercial off-the-shelf (SPoC) solution”.

The SPoC solution can be offered ‘As-a-Service’ and integrated with third-party apps.

MYPINPAD is certified for its PIN on Mobile solution (MPP mPOS), which replaces POS terminals and PIN entry mPOS devices with smartphones.

MPP mPOS is designed to facilitate card payment acceptance for small enterprises.

Notably, the solution can be used by people with disabilities such as the visually impaired.

MYPINPAD CEO and chairman Phil King said: “We are proud to have achieved PCI SPoC certification for IOS devices, featuring a standard non-scrambled PIN pad that consumers trust and are familiar with. We look forward to announcing the same for Android devices soon.

“Since inception MYPINPAD’s commitment to this technology has been unwavering. Our platform has been designed to make available Secure Card Reader-based and contactless payment acceptance solutions, the latter called MPP SoftPOS as a software only solution, with attestation and with the pre-integration of our code inside every payShield HSM.”

Developments at MYPINPAD 

In March 2018, the firm partnered with Ingenico Group to pilot its new PIN on Mobile (PoM) solution for in-store payments in Europe.

In July 2018, MYPINPAD launched its Open mPOS platform designed for PoM authentication.
