ID TECH, the leading manufacturer of custom and standard POS and Automatic ID peripherals, has released the much anticipated SecureMag, an encrypted magnetic stripe reader that supports TDES and AES encryption technology with DUKPT key management.
ID TECH’s PCI 2.0 certified products and its TG3 certified key injection facility provide the technology and expertise for enhancing our industry leading magnetic card readers with versatile data encryption providing a secure line of products compliant with PCI-DSS standards and requirements.
ID TECH's newest offering, SecureMag, ensures that all data transactions are protected from the moment they are read - thereby significantly reducing the possibility of fraud and data compromises. SecureMag can function as a standard reader or be permanently configured as a secure encrypted reader. It supports TDES or AES encryption technologies and provides for factory or customer key injection options.
SecureMag is designed to protect magnetic data with each reader having a unique protected internal serial number assigned for tracking and security purposes. “Data encryption from the magnetic reader is a significant step in protecting customers’ card data, and we believe that SecureMag provides the best solution to this critical step in closing that loop hole in point of sale transactions,” says Gerry Knight, Business Development Director for ID TECH. ID TECH’s experience in developing PCI compliant products provides the technology expertise required to produce a secure magnetic card reader while making it extremely versatile for customer implementation.
ID TECH’s SecureMag will be featured in November at Cartes & Identification 2009 in Paris, France. SecureMag’s official product launch is October 12, 2009 and is available directly through ID TECH or the company’s channel partners. Please visit www.aceperipherals.com/brands/id-tech
