POS transactions from larger retail organizations challenge payment processing systems with performance and security requirements. Transaction transport, especially during surge conditions such as holidays demand bandwidth to avoid bottlenecks directly experienced by consumers. Security vulnerabilities can also be exposed especially when volume climbs.
NewNet Secure Solutions for High Volume Retail
The potential for negative consumer impact ranging from check-out delays to security breaches make it imperative that Banks and Payment Processors ensure that transaction transport is safe and reliable at all volumes. NewNet’s AccessGuard 1000 provides hardware accelerated transaction transport over IP networks with benefits that include:
Efficient Performance – Single system consolidation for security (SSL, TLS), Transaction Protocol Processing (VISA, ISO8583, EMV, HTTPS), Transaction Routing, and IP Routing (RIP, OSPF).
Scalability – Support for thousands of broadband IP-based payment terminals with the ability to scale beyond a million POS terminals by distributing AG1000 nodes throughout a network.
Redundancy & Load Sharing – Distribution of traffic to Host servers based on pre-defined criteria including round robin, pre-defined preference values, outstanding traffic or active load.
PCI Certified Scalable Security – Hardware accelerated DUKPT encryption with tokenization options ensures secure transaction transport. Encryption offloaded from host servers and encryption aggregation via the reuse of previously established SSL Session ID’s deliver performance confidence for all transaction volume conditions.
Deployment Flexibility – Virtualization allows acquirers, processors and carriers to offer differentiated services on the same systems to multiple customers to more efficiently support seasonal demand and other customer base variations.
