November 2011 – As PCI regulations are requiring greater protections on cardholder data, the 15″ StealthTouch-M5 and the S-Line models now offer encrypted card readers to meet with PCI DSS requirements. The encrypted reader has been certified to work with several gateways, such as Mercury Payment systems, Merchant Warehouse, First Data, Element Payment Services, and Payment Processing Inc. to name a few.

Powered by Magtek’s MagneSafe Security Architecture (MSA), the StealthTouch-M5 and S-Line encrypt the credit card data at the point of swipe. The encrypted data is sent to the gateway who will decrypt and process the transaction. Since the card data is encrypted immediately, and there is no secondary software encryption needed, the system will only deal with an encrypted card data.

Other add-ons for the StealthTouch and S-Line series include a biometrics, customer display, LCD display, integrated barcode scanner, and privacy filter. Also available in 12″ , and 17″ display sizes.
