Infinite Peripherals, Inc. (IPC), the leading developer of mobile point-of-sale (POS) devices, has formed a partnership with leading data protection provider Voltage Security, Inc., which delivers encryption, tokenization and key management solutions to combat security threats. IPC has integrated the Voltage SecureData Payments™ solution to enable customers that use IPC’s Linea Pro® 5 and Infinea Tab® M to take advantage of Voltage’s unique end-to-end encryption system that protects data, simplifies the key injection and key management processes and reduces costs while neutralizing data from advanced malware threats in retail payment data flows that are a top industry concern.
“Voltage offers merchants several advantages – including standards-recognized Format-Preserving Encryption; simplified, remote key management; and an end-to-end architecture – that ultimately save time, money and headaches typically associated with data protection,” said Jeffrey Scott, CEO of Infinite Peripherals.
The Linea Pro 5 and Infinea Tab M add an encrypted MSR, barcode scanner, RFID and Bluetooth® chip to Apple’s® iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad® mini, equipping them for use with custom software for mobile POS, inventory management and more. The Linea Pro 5 and Infinea Tab M are the first mobile iOS solutions to have earned PCI PTS 3.1 SRED approval, an important part of a merchant’s compliance with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Voltage’s Format-Preserving Encryption (NIST SP800-38G FPE) uses cipher-text that preserves its original format or structure, and its Identity-Based Encryption (IEEE 1363.3 IBE) eliminates the complexity of traditional public key infrastructure (PKI) systems and symmetric key systems – so no digital certificates or keys must be injected or synchronized.
Now, with Voltage SecureData Payments, merchants benefit from the only encryption solution in the world that uses stateless key management, which eliminates the cumbersome process of encryption key injection on the Linea Pro 5 and Infinea Tab M. Instead, transactions are encrypted using a randomly generated key that is regularly rotated within the Linea Pro 5 or Infinea Tab M devices.
“Merchants may now activate Voltage SecureData Payments, our end-to-end encryption solution, on an expanded list of mobile payment devices, in addition to traditional PIN pads and terminals,” said George Rice, director of business development for Voltage Security. “Voltage SecureData Payments removes all requirements to inject, store and manage encryption keys in payment devices, making it the easiest, most efficient way for retailers to protect cardholder data and reduce PCI-DSS audit scope.”
Encryption keys are securely generated on demand with Voltage Stateless Key Management. Key rotation is automatic and transparent, thereby reducing costs and eliminating the labor-intensive processes traditionally associated with key management. Furthermore, Voltage’s solution works “off-the-shelf,” and does not require any steps to turn on encryption or synchronize the device with a processing host, which simplifies activation and ongoing management. Voltage SecureData Payments is compatible with existing and new deployments.

"We've discovered that after shows 80% if leads that people get, 80% of the conversations end up on the show floor, meaning people forget about it, people forget who they talk to, people forget that there are actual business opportunities to be had here so we try to help out and keep the conversations going," explained Jeff Mesnik, Founder and President of ContentMX, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.

We all know the latest numbers: Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 6.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2016, up 30 percent from last year, and will reach 20.8 billion by 2020. We're rapidly approaching a data production of 40 zettabytes a day – more than we can every physically store, and exabytes and yottabytes are just around the corner. For many that’s a good sign, as data has been proven to equal money – IF it’s ingested, integrated, and analyzed fast enough. Without real-ti...

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
