usd received accreditation as P2PE QSA company
20. May 2016

By the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), the usd has received two approvals QSA (P2PE) and PA-QSA (P2PE) Qualified Security Assessor. The approvals have been issued for the region of Europe.
The Point-to-Point Encryption Standard (PCI P2PE) is the youngest of the PCI standards. It was initially released in 2012 to help merchants with a large network of branches along the way to a successful PCI DSS certification by using a PCI P2PE solution. The standard ensures that cardholder data from the input point (typically a POS terminal) to the end point (the service provider’s or network operator’s processing system) is encrypted in a way that transmission paths and the components used along have no further part in the merchant’s PCI compliance.
Christopher Kristes, Head of PCI & Payment Security: ”This accreditation enables us to certify P2PE solutions and P2PE applications on POI devices for our customers. We are proud to be one of 24 companies worldwide that are able to conduct certifications based on this challenging standard.”
