Nodus Products Have Been Revalidated Against PA-DSS

recertified

For the third time, Nodus Credit Card Advantage, ePay Advantage and eStore Solution Stack have been validated against the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS). This time, the Nodus solutions have been validated under the new PA-DSS version 3.2 which requires support for only secure encryption protocols such as TLS 1.2.

“Nodus is very dedicated to maintaining our PA-DSS certification for all of our solutions,” said Nikki Nguyen, Director of Product Management, “Providing secure applications for processing electronic payments helps us maintain trust with our loyal customers and partners.”

Due to the new industry requirement, Nodus is highly recommending that all current customers upgrade to the newest versions of their Nodus software to utilize the TLS 1.2 encryption protocol. This upgrade should be scheduled as soon as possible to avoid any disruption when Payment Gateways begin to turn off the previous insecure encryption protocols. More information on the TLS 1.2 Security update can be found at:  http://www.nodus.com/nodus_TLS_Security_Update.html

Customers interested in upgrading can contact Nodus Technologies Support at (909) 482-4701 option 2 or by e-mailing support@nodus.com.


What is PA-DSS?

The PCI’s Payment Application Data Security Standards (PA-DSS) defines security requirements & procedures for software vendors of payment applications to securely manage and protect card data. A validated PA-DSS application means that the payment application has been assessed to ensure it meets all of the security requirements of the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI-SSC).


How does the PA-DSS impact customers?

Secure payment applications help to facilitate a customer’s PCI DSS compliance. When implemented in a DSS-compliant environment, PA-DSS validated payment applications will minimize the potential for security breaches leading to compromises of full magnetic stripe data, card validation codes and values (CAV2, CID, CVC2, and CVV2), PINs and PIN blocks.
