TNS’s on-site Key Injection Facility (KIF) in Adelaide, Australia is now listed as a validated Point-to Point Encryption (P2PE) component on the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) website, re-affirming TNS’s strength in payments security.

TNS’s KIF is built with the highest security measures, is fully compliant with the PCI Point-to-Point Encryption security requirements and was validated in December 2020.

“We are very pleased with this achievement. Security is such an integral part of payments and is at the core of our solutions,” said Dan Billsdon, TNS’s Chief Product Officer. “We are excited to be a leader in this space and to be able to support a significant part of the security chain.”

A KIF is a highly secured and controlled environment where payment terminals are loaded with encryption keys. It is a critical component of a validated P2PE solution which is a combination of secure payment terminals, software, application systems and processes for payments related transactions.

“We currently work with our partners to deliver our validated P2PE solution in the US and the UK,” said Billsdon. “Our new KIF will further strengthen the support that we can give to our customers in APAC.”

This new milestone builds on TNS’s payments offering and reinforces its commitment to deliver leading payment solutions across the globe to the highest security standards.
