SMPLink™ processes its 50 millionth PCI compliant transaction

by Don Bunt 20. February 2013 05:45

On Monday, SMPLink™ processed its 50 millionth PCI compliant transaction. SMPLink™ is PCI-compliant credit card interface software developed specifically for Panasonic System Manager Pro (SMP) users that integrates seamlessly with Merchant Link's TransactionVault® - a system that stores sensitive cardholder data in a secure vault - not on your back office computer. SMPLink™ from Bunt Software has been validated under the PCI PA-DSS v1.2 rules.

The Panasonic System Manager Pro point of sale software was sold into over 2500 restaurants, representing almost every Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand. Unfortunately, the SMP software is vulnerable and not PCI compliant. The SMP software had interfaces to both Merchant Link's SiteNet and Southern DataComm's Protobase. Southern DataComm is now called Elavon.

Visa added SMP to the list of vulnerable payment applications in January, 2012. Based on a Visa compliance mandate effective 10/1/09, the SMP software must be decertified by VisaNet processors and agents within 12 months. That time has come and gone. In order to protect the consumers credit cards, the processors are enforcing the Visa guidelines.

Get PCI compliant now by installing SMPLink™.

SMPLink™ has nearly 750 sites installed and processes 2.75 Million PCI compliant credit transactions per month. SMPLink™ has also processed over one half million gift card transactions.

Countdown to Decertification for System Manager Pro

by Don Bunt 2. November 2012 07:03

At the end of January, 2013, hundreds of Panasonic System Manager Pro (SMP) users are in for a rude awakening. This is when the SMP software will be decertified by their VisaNet processor. With the holidays coming fast, the waiting lists for installation at point of sale dealers are growing.

Time until Decertification:

 

 

Panasonic System Manager Pro users must act NOW or be kept from processing credit transactions at the end of January, 2013.

The Panasonic System Manager Pro point of sale software was sold into over 2500 reastaurants, representing almost every Quick Service Restaurant (QSR) brand. Unfortunately, the SMP software is vulnerable, not PCI compliant and Panasonic no longer supports this software.

Don't let your SMP system get hacked like this ...

Recently, four Romanian hackers were found guilty of hacking over 200 quick service establishments, including 150 Subway restaurants. The hackers compromised over 80,000 credit card numbers and made millions of dollars of unauthorized purchases.

According to this Forbes article, the hackers scanned the internet for vulnerable remote access software and pos systems.

Your Panasonic System Manager Pro (SMP) software is vulnerable and not on the list of PA-DSS validated payment applications.

At the end of January, 2013, your credit card processor will be required to kick you off his network.
