What is next for SoftPOS security evaluations now that MPoC is live ?

Until now, SoftPOS solution providers should perform payment schemes security evaluation or PCI CPoC evaluation to deploy their products.

A recent communication from Visa Tap to Phone team gave a timeline for Visa Ready SoftPOS solutions to be certified with MPoC, the new PCI security standard defining the required protection mechanisms for safeguarding sensitive data processed during transactions initiated through SoftPOS.

As the industry focuses on the new requirements to build secure software-based payment acceptance solutions, payment schemes progressively unveil their strategy to ensure the continuity of functional, security, and branding certifications for SoftPOS products already launched on the market.
