Electronic payment technology provider
Verifone has unveiled VX Evolution, the latest and enhanced member
of its VX payments solutions family.

The four new systems that have been announced
are powered by Verix architecture and are designed to ensure
backward compatibility, eliminating any need for retraining of
sales, support and deployment resources. Enhancements include
integrated contactless and end-to-end encryption.

Paul Rasori, VeriFone senior vice president,
marketing said: “Verix is the most trusted payment architecture in
the world, representing more than 8 million devices. VX Evolution
continues to demonstrate our commitment to protect customer
investments in our systems and solutions. We’ve taken the best of
the proven VX line and created a complete new family of
forward-looking and backward-compatible solutions that meet
tomorrow’s challenges while supporting existing applications.”

The VX Evolution payments solution is designed
to PCI PED 2.0 specifications. It  combines the VX 520, VX
680, VX 820 and VX 820 DUET systems, and provides VeriShield
Protect technology built-in to support end-to-end encryption of
card data, feature standard USB ports for maximum flexibility, and
optionally include integrated contactless for acceptance of
contactless cards, fobs and mobile-phone initiated payments.

Market availability of the VX 520 and VX 680
are scheduled for May, while the VX 820 and VX 820 DUET are
scheduled before the end of the year.
