Data-centric security provider Voltage Security has announced a new partnership with Gertec, provider of global commercial and banking automation solutions. Gertec will integrate Voltage SecureData Payments encryption technology into the Gertec PPC 910 PIN pad for electronic funds transfer (EFT). The Gertec PPC 910 supports EMV and is also PTS 2.1 certified.
“Voltage Security’s encryption expertise is unparalleled and we are pleased to be partnering on this world-class solution that allows us to provide new freedom to our customers and, in turn, their customers — freedom from worry of unsecured payment transactions,” said Jorge Ribeiro Pereira, president, Gertec.
“Based on the success of this project, we plan to continue to partner with Voltage on future integrations,” Pereira added.
“Our technology partnership with Gertec means that a broader range of global payment processors will now have the option of providing their customers with the highest level of transaction security. This is particularly important in countries like Brazil, which is one of the world’s fastest growing economies but is challenged with PCI data security, as well as other multinational deployments,” said George Rice, director business development, payments, Voltage Security.
