CA-based InfoGard is now accredited by EMVCo to conduct Terminal Type Testing and will immediately begin offering Level 2 contact testing and pre-evaluation services. EMV pre-evaluation services include debug testing and compliance consulting. Additional EMVCo testing services are being planned to support its payment customers.
To address the EMV liability shift mandate in October, InfoGard recognized the need for domestic EMV Terminal Type Approval testing service to support our PCI PTS Terminal customers. In addition, InfoGard also provides security testing services to mobile device manufacturers, whose devices can be used to perform EMV transactions. Our accreditation marks another important milestone for InfoGard as the only U.S. laboratory approved to conduct PCI PTS and EMV Terminal Type Testing.
InfoGard was the first private IT Security laboratory approved by VISA and PCI to conduct payment device security testing services. InfoGard conducts Payment Transaction Security (PTS), Hardware Security Module (HSM) and Approved Scanning Vendor Validation (ASVV) testing under the PCI scheme.
