Merchant Warehouse Expands Product Line with Encrypted All-in-One Payment Devices

Latest release supports ID TECH's secure line of encrypted card readers and will provide developers a stereamlined process in bringing secure payment solutions to market

Merchant Warehouse, a premier provider of merchant accounts and credit card processing solutions, today announced the release of MerchantWARE 4.0, and the recently completed integration with ID TECH into the MerchantWARE suite of products.

MerchantWARE 4.0 provides a streamlined integration process for point-of-sale (POS) developers and also includes complete support of ID TECH standard and enhanced versions of their SL Secure Line of products. MerchantWARE now supports ID TECH's SecureKey M130 and SecureMag products, as well as Triple Data Encryption Standard (TDES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) methods. MerchantWARE 4.0 and its integration with ID TECH will be demonstrated at Merchant Warehouse's booth, No. 207, at the RSPA RetailNOW Conference, July 24-27 in Orlando, Fla.

With MerchantWARE 4.0, the new streamlined procedure means developers can find tailor-made integration processes with the click of a button. By further improving the already easy-to-use MerchantWARE integration process, developers can save time allowing them to bring secure payment solutions to market sooner.

ID TECH chose the MerchantWARE Payment Gateway as a preferred decryption service for its line of secure devices. The partnership allows merchants and POS developers to combine ID TECH's encrypted card readers and key pads with MerchantWARE's API to offer a robust end-to-end encryption solution. PA-DSS compliance is dramatically simplified for POS developers, often taking them "out-of-scope" for PA-DSS audits, and minimizes the complexity and costs of PCI compliance for merchants. By offering a payment solution where both swiped and keyed transaction are protected with end-to-end encryption, merchants can be assured that sensitive card data information is never "in the clear".

"We are excited about our partnership with ID TECH, as it combines Merchant Warehouse's secure payment solutions with ID TECH's line of encrypted card readers," said Henry Helgeson, co-CEO of Merchant Warehouse. "Together we can deliver superior performance to our customers and bring another level of data security confidence to the market."

With the addition of the ID TECH line of devices, MerchantWARE has another "out-of-scope" payment solution for developers. This makes Merchant Warehouse one of the few payment solutions providers that can offer more than one "out-of-scope" solution. MerchantWARE's other "out-of-scope" solution is its Transport Platform which provides PA-DSS validated hosted payment solutions for all point-of-sale, ecommerce, shopping carts and SaaS environments.

"We are pleased and excited about this opportunity to partner with Merchant Warehouse. We believe MerchantWARE's focus on bringing innovative secure payment solutions to the market combined with ID TECH's SL Secure Line products will provide merchants and developers everywhere with the best secure payment solutions possible," said Yvonne Yong, product manager for ID TECH.
