Essintial℠ is proud to announce it has surpassed its 30,000th EMV chip security upgrade for a Fortune 25 multi-unit retailer. Beginning in 2013, Essintial invested in its EMV chip security upgrade service offering, recognizing that these upgrades would be a necessity for all merchants as the US based credit acquirers and processors required them to be in compliance by October 15th 2015 with the new EMV standards. Becoming EMV compliant limits Essintial’s customers’ liability for fraudulent transactions while keeping both merchant and customer identities safe. This advancement is part of a global strategy to combat fraud and protect sensitive data in both card-present and card-not-present (CNP) environments, and Essintial has a proven track record of leading large retailers, financial institutions and other key customers through this critical upgrade.
Most customers come to Essintial looking for help because they do not have the resources or infrastructure needed to execute and manage a large scale deployment in a timely manner. At Essintial, we have a unique division that specializes in managing these types of complex projects. We work with you to understand your cost, quality and implementation requirements as well as your deployment strategy. The reason for this upgrade requirement is simple – security. 2014 was a year filled with major security breaches in the retail environment. EMV allows dynamic authentication capabilities, providing POS systems the ability to verify the cards legitimacy, value and clone validations. If you have a need to become EMV compliant, I encourage you to contact Essintial so that we can add your company to our growing list of customers who have successfully upgraded, thanks to us.”
