AnywhereCommerce Adopts New Visa Mobile Payment Security Best

July 2011 – Montreal, Canada. AnywhereCommerce, the leading eCommerce and mCommerce solutions provider that extends both physical POS and eCommerce to the mobile environment, is pleased to announce that it is following the best practices and minimum standards for encryption guidelines for mobile payments released by Visa. After careful review, the company said its solutions meet or exceed all Visa guidelines for mobile payment acceptance solution vendors.

Today there are many mobile payment solution providers that are not compliant with either PCI security standards or best practices, consequently, the entire payment system remains highly vulnerable and prone to attack. According to Visa, building security into the core of mobile acceptance solutions is necessary to help grow the channel and encourage innovation. Commenting on this, Company CEO, Mitch Cobrin said, “Maintaining a secure ecosystem is of paramount importance to the company. We plan to continually exceed industry guidelines with best practices as a leader in mobile payments”.

AnywhereCommerce’s suite is proving to be “best of breed” for in-store line busting, as well as field services, using tablets, iPhones, iPads, Blackberries and Android devices.
