Aloha and the new EMV/Chip & PIN Card Requirements

NCR Connected PaymentsWe have all heard nightmare stories about hacks of some of the biggest retailers and restaurants in the business and we all need to make sure that we are doing everything that we can to secure our networks and customer information. A “commercial grade” firewall is a big part of securing customer information but the Credit Card Industry is taking a big step this fall to enhance security by pushing for a move towards acceptance of cards with embedded security “chips” and the use of “Personal Identification Numbers” (PIN) for all card transactions.

There is a lot of confusion about what this means for your restaurant but rest assured that NCR/Aloha is working to provide the most secure POS system in the industry.  NCR is the global leader in POS and has great experience in data security as a provider of ATMs and other infrastructure to the banking industry.

They are now applying this knowledge in the creation of the new NCR Connected Payments solution that will completely remove the sensitive card data from your operation.  The entire process, from card capture to settlement is encrypted which greatly reduces that risk to your operation.  Also, unlike other POS vendors, you will also have a choice of several different processors so you can ensure that you getting not only the best POS system, but the best possible card processing rates!

NCR Connected Payments will soon be in field testing and we will provide more information as it becomes available.  In the meantime you can click on the following link for more information: NCR Connected Payments .  If  you have any further questions contact Devin Wright at 801.487.6558 or dwright@postechnologies.net.
