Verifone Announces PAYware SIM to Securely Integrate Payment Devices with Windows-Based Software

Secure Integration Method Makes it Easier for Developers to Integrate Verifone Devices and Payment Engines with POS Systems April 21, 2009 Las Vegas, NV

(ETA Booth #219) – Verifone Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PAY), today announced PAYware SIM, providing a single interface to simply and securely integrate Windows-based POS systems with Verifone’s secure payment software solutions and consumer activated acceptance devices. The developer tool isolates sensitive cardholder data from the POS application, and is designed to greatly reduce the complexity and associated costs of achieving compliance with PCI and PA DSS requirements.

PAYware SIM—Secure Integration Method—provides developers with an easy to integrate Windows DLL that allows their applications to seamlessly take advantage of the breadth of Verifone’s extensive card acceptance devices and payment processing engines.

“PAYware SIM makes it really simple for us to integrate our Windows-based applications with Verifone devices for our clients,” said Keith Pascal, president of 12:51:58, a provider of POS solutions for the global restaurant retail industry. “It is simple to execute, simple to manage and a great implementation tool. It also makes it easy to train people on our integrated systems so we can deploy them remotely.”

“In addition to PA DSS, our software has to comply with inventory information approval system standards for health benefit payment card transactions,” said Ron Leonard, vice president of engineering with ScriptPro, a provider of pharmacy management and robotic dispensing systems. “PAYware SIM allows us to isolate these payment security issues from development of our core application. That results in a huge reduction in time to market.”

PAYware SIM enables POS developers to support Verifone software-based payment solutions, including IPCharge, PAYware Transact, PAYware PC, and PCCharge, and to accommodate card acceptance solutions including the PINpad 1000SE, the MX800 Series and the Vx 810.

“PAYware SIM reduces application development costs and quickens time to market for integrators, full-service ISOs and retailers developing their own applications,” said Paul Rasori, Verifone senior vice president of marketing. “By providing this secure development tool, we’re also easing the effort to comply with PCI DSS requirements for secure payment systems.”

PAYware SIM is available in late April and will be shipped with PAYware Development Kits directly from Verifone.
