Tran™ Product Line Re-Validated under PA-DSS V1.2.1

Chalfont, PA - Datacap’s current Tran™ line of integrated payment products (DialTran™, IPTran™, TwinTran™) for ECR’s and embedded systems has been re-validated according to the latest PCI PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard) Version 1.2.1. Additionally, the latest version of DialTran (V 3.0) joins IPTran and TwinTran in further bolstering security by adding stored transaction truncation, which significantly shrinks potential access to stored data. Datacap’s Tran products accept no unsolicited inbound commands and utilize no external password entry, making the DialTran, IPTran and TwinTran the most secure e-payments options available today for ECR’s and embedded systems.

The PCI PABP (Payment Applications Best Practices) validation for the sunsetted Legacy DataTran has now lapsed. Pre-existing installations are compliant and can remain in use. However, all future installations should utilize the new and improved DialTran, which replaced the Legacy DataTran beginning in 2007.

PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) is a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security and preventing credit card fraud and related illegal activities. The standards were developed by the PCI Security Standards Council, a cooperative forum of the major payment card brands, to help facilitate broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis.

For a merchant to comply with PCI DSS they must use fully PA-DSS compliant POS and payment solutions as well as follow PCI DSS standards for implementation and protecting card holder data in day to day operations. While compliance is a current requirement for all merchant retailers, and is ultimately the responsibility of each merchant, processors and acquirers are now checking merchant applicants to affirm that the employed payment application is currently validated under the latest PCI SSC standard.
