ATLANTA -- NCR Corp. is launching the Europay, Mastercard and Visa (EMV)-integrated Equinox Luxe devices for NCR Connected Payments, a platform that provides a secure payment route for retailers.
“NCR’s Connected Payments, combined with the newly integrated Equinox Luxe devices, allows our retail customers to interact with their consumers wherever they are--at the checkout, in aisles or on the move,” said David Wilkinson, senior vice president and general manager of retail for NCR. “With our future-oriented Connected Payments solution, retailers are able to make the best long-term technology and hardware investment decisions that align with and support their growth strategy.”
NCR engaged Coalfire, a cybersecurity adviser that helps private- and public-sector organizations avert threats, close gaps and manage risk, to assess the Connected Payments platform as a Payments Card Industry-validated point-to-point encryption solution, with initial support for Equinox devices. Coalfire has submitted the final report to the Payments Card Industry Security Standards Council and anticipates the listing of the validated solution in the first quarter of this year.
The company has released the new EMV-certified device as the October 2020 liability shift approaches. After the shift, retailers whose customers are victims of fraud or identity theft due to the lack of on-site EMV integration could be held liable for their losses.
Scottsdale, Ariz.-based Equinox Payments is owned by NBS Payment Solutions, based in Toronto, which provides electronic payment devices.
NCR, based in Atlanta, does business in 180 countries. It enables nearly 700 million transactions daily in the financial, retail, hospitality, travel, telecom and technology industries.
