JUSP mPOS Earns Highest PCI Security Certification: Now Commercially Available for Sale on Website

Top Insurance Company Is First Corporate Client; Using New "Payments List" Product

FRANKFURT, GERMANY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- mPOS World -- JUSP, the all-in-one, chip-and-pin mPOS (Mobile Point-of-Sale) solution for smartphones, tablets and PCs, announced that its mPOS solution is now commercially available for sale, having received the most stringent security level certifications for mobile point of sale devices: EMV level 1 and 2,PCI PTS 3.1 SRED*. JUSP is just one of a handful of companies worldwide that has achieved the full range of certifications.

Starting now, JUSP will sell its mPOS device through its website, beginning with customers in Italy and rolling out to Europe and the US later for main street retailers and large corporations, as well as micro merchants. JUSP is also announcing its first corporate client -- one of the largest insurance companies worldwide. Following a pilot program, JUSP will provide its mPOS solution to more than 3,000 agents in Italy. Several other large clients are in the pipeline. US expansion of the JUSP solution is planned for 2015 when EMV transition is mandated to take place.

New "Payments List" Product

JUSP's new product feature "Payments List" will be used first by its insurance client. Payments List enables any company to use its browser application to prepare in advance a list of payment packages for merchandise or insurance policies. Once in the field, sales teams can view the payments linked to insurance policies or products on the JUSP smartphone or tablet app. There is no need for the sales people to lug around a heavy laptop to close payments or rely on inconsistent Internet connectivity. Payments are made on regular smart phones and JUSP makes sure payment is safe, reliable and quick.

"Payments List benefits large retailers and corporate customers that have an existing Windows-based infrastructure in place. JUSP's payment technology seamlessly integrates all the elements needed for automatic payment reconciliation; there's no need for reconfiguring the system or recoding the browser solution or app," said Giuseppe Saponaro, COO, JUSP. "Our mPOS solution works very easily with existing corporate systems, saving huge administrative overheads for a corporation."

Payments List was designed first for use in the insurance world, but will work just as well in the delivery industry or for any corporation that has to integrate mPOS devices with existing backend systems.

Also being announced today:

  • Stefano Calderano, CEO, JUSP is speaking at the mPOS World Conference June 24, 2014 in Frankfurt, Germany. JUSP sees the mPOS market growing beyond the micro and small merchant to include main street retailers and corporations with a large salesforce in the field. Mr. Calderano will address this shift in the industry and discuss what opportunities are opening up for the entire value chain, as well as how to securely integrate mPOS into the larger retail environment.
  • JUSP has also been named to the short list of finalists of the Mobile Innovations Award in the best mobile POS category.

Editor Information:

*EMV (Europay, MasterCard, Visa) certification is issued by a company called EMVco, which is a consortium between all card schemes (founded by MasterCard and Visa, now includes Amex, Discover, and other cards). PCI, the Payment Council Institute, enhances payment account data security. PTS, the PIN Transaction System, is the certification specifically for chip-and-pin devices (traditional and mobile). SRED stands for secure reading and exchange of data. The SRED module ensures that cardholder account data is protected at the point of acceptance, which assists with meeting the required security considerations of the wider point-to-point encryption process.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications?

Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand.

They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.
