PARIS, France (10 December 2012) – Tokheim, one of the world’s largest suppliers of fuel retailing solutions, announced today that it is now PCI DSS certified for its OASE payment gateway service. This certification has been awarded subsequent to a comprehensive audit that took place in September. Tokheim’s Online Authorisation and Switching Environment (OASE), facilitates fuel and bank card payments in a fuel retail environment, and it currently processes more than 300 million transactions per year.
PCI DSS is a multifaceted security standard that includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. This comprehensive standard is in place to proactively support organisations to protect their customer account data.
Peter Van Nauw, System’s Product Marketing Director at Tokheim, says, “This is another important certification that Tokheim has achieved after a focused implementation process that has been ongoing for more than two years. Validating compliance with the PCI DSS demonstrates Tokheim’s commitment to help ensure our customer’s information is protected. Achieving the PCI DSS certification also demonstrates Tokheim’s long-term commitment to future-proofing our comprehensive payment solution based on Fuel POS, the Crypto VGA outdoor and Crypto IPT indoor payment terminals and OASE.”
