WHAT IS A PAYMENT HSM?
Payment HSMs are an essential element of security in the payments system, and their use in payments and PIN processing is mandated by PCI and must be certified to PCI security standards.
Designed to protect the Financial Services industry, Payment HSMs are used for cryptographic operations to perform PIN translation and verification, card verification, card production and personalization, electronic funds interchange (EFTPOS, ATM), cash-card reloading, EMV transaction processing, and key generation and injection.
“Partnering with MYHSM has been a gamechanger for STS Payments. We know payment acceptance inside and out but HSMs and key management were new to us, so MYHSM’s fully managed service and highly skilled engineers were the ideal solution and it’s been an exciting journey together.”
