ID TECH INTRODUCES NEW SECUREKEY M SERIES ENCRYPTED KEYPADS
Cypress, CA, May 25, 2011 – ID TECH, a leading manufacturer of standard and custom POS and identification peripherals, has released the SecureKey M Series encrypted keypads that have the capabilities to encrypt both swiped and manually keyed-in payment card data.
The ID TECH SecureKey M Series was designed to provide payment security when a card is unable to be swiped. The SecureKey M100 is an encrypted keypad that supports encryption of manually keyed-in card data, and the M130 incorporates an additional encrypted magstripe reader (MSR). Both keypads support TDES and AES encryption algorithms and use DUKPT key management. The SecureKey M Series devices are USB-powered, and they both have LCD backlit displays that feature two lines of 20 characters. Both models have an operating life of 20,000,000 total keystrokes and the M130 MSR has an operating life of 1,000,000 card cycles.
The SecureKey M Series keypads provide plug-and-play integration with a straightforward XML output format. The standard USB Keyboard interface makes integration very easy. As with all of the products in the ID TECH SL Secure Line, ID TECH offers certified key-injection services in its TG3-certified facility.
The ID TECH SecureKey M Series keypads are ideal for merchants that require both swipe and manually keyed-in payment card transactions. Applications that could greatly benefit from the features of the M Series keypads are call centers, retail, hospitality, banking, healthcare, point of sale, and lodging. With the ability to encrypt both types of transactions, the ID TECH SecureKey M100 and M130 keypads significantly improve card holder data security and can reduce PCI-DSS scope for merchants.
