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.

With all the incredible momentum behind the Internet of Things (IoT) industry, it is easy to forget that not a single CEO wakes up and wonders if “my IoT is broken.” What they wonder is if they are making the right decisions to do all they can to increase revenue, decrease costs, and improve customer experience – effectively the same challenges they have always had in growing their business. The exciting thing about the IoT industry is now these decisions can be better, faster, and smarter. Now ...
The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
Discussions of cloud computing have evolved in recent years from a focus on specific types of cloud, to a world of hybrid cloud, and to a world dominated by the APIs that make today's multi-cloud environments and hybrid clouds possible. In this Power Panel at 17th Cloud Expo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists addressed the importance of customers being able to use the specific technologies they need, through environments and ecosystems that expose their APIs to make true ...
Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
