Thales HSMs have long been a standard within the payment industry, and with more than 25 years of experience the company has reached a market leading position. The numbers speak for themselves: Thales HSMs protect 80 percent of all card transactions in the world.
payShield 10K is an HSM designed to meet the needs and requirements of the payment industry. It’s the fifth generation of payment HSMs from Thales eSecurity and replaces the now soon to be end of sales payShield 9000. It performs tasks such as PIN protection and validation, transaction processing, key management and payment card issuance – capable of handling both chip cards (EMVs) and magnetic stripe cards. It delivers high assurance protection for ATMs, POS terminals and credit card transactions, while providing operational ease.
payShield 10K also supports the growth in global transaction volumes with a range of cryptographic performance options, including the highest performance figures in the industry – processing up to 2 500 calculations per second (CPS).
