It’s Time to Start Layering Your Payment Security Solutions

image With the holiday shopping season in full swing, millions of businesses will see a spike in payment activity. And unfortunately, many of them will see a spike in data theft, too. This is a vital time of year for merchants to take a look at their payment security strategy and ask themselves if they are truly doing everything they can to protect their customers’ payment
data – and their brand – from the devastating effects of a data breach.

Shift4 Supports Ingenico’s New Mobile Terminal

thumb Add new revenue centers and make paying for goods or services more convenient for your customers with Ingenico’s sleek and secure new iSMP4 Companion, which (pardon the pun) happens to be a great companion to Shift4’s VT4 mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) solution.

Our Award-Winning VT4 Mobile POS Just Got Better

thumb VT4 is the most versatile mobile point-of-sale solution available. It works on any smartphone, tablet, or laptop with a variety of accessory packages, including the new iSMP4 Companion. One of the biggest draws to VT4 has been the ability for administrators to control VT4 settings in real time via the backend application, 4tress. (Think of it as VT4’s mission control center.) Now, 4tress has a polished new look and feel, so it’s even easier to navigate when you’re updating user permissions, adding or updating shelf items, pulling sales reports, and more.

Ready for Faster EMV Transactions?

Last year, we put out an article explaining how the arrival of EMV essentially killed the concept of swipe ahead. With EMV, customers have to wait until all items are rung up and a total is calculated before inserting their cards – and then wait 15-20 agonizing seconds for processing before they can remove their card. Good news! This no longer has to be the case.
