At the beginning of 2015, new generation of the switching solution developed by OpenWay, a recognized leader in software for bankcard issuing and acquiring, payment processing, financial transaction routing, and omni-channel, successfully passed a payment solution security audit (PA-DSS).
The new WAY4 Switch is based on a Java messaging platform allowing OpenWay clients to customize their host-to-host interfaces and routing rules easily using new industry-standard scripting languages. Certification confirms new switching solution compliance with PA-DSS requirements. The entire WAY4 platform including WAY4 CMS & Switch is successfully certified. Past years the WAY4 CMS and Switch components of the WAY4 platform regularly passed PA-DSS audits. A PA-DSS certificate is proof that the WAY4 software platform guarantees banks and processing companies secure processing of card data and makes it possible to implement these solutions in PCI DSS-compliant IT infrastructure.
WAY4 is the only processing platform in the world with an integrated front and back office. This unique structure allows OpenWay clients to run smart online services that consider a product's business logic and client and channel specifications. Services can be launched quickly based on unified business objects and flexible rules. Working with WAY4, the bank does not bear the risks and expenses linked with integrating the processing system's back and front offices. This is because all card and client data is available in real time on a single platform. The WAY4 processing platform thereby enables financial organisations to innovate and cut costs.
The PA-DSS audit covers all of the WAY4 platform components for issuing, acquiring, switching, e-commerce, loyalty programmes, business analysis, risk management, dispute management, workbenches, merchant portal, SMS banking, and others. The full list of certified solutions on the WAY4 platform is available on the official PCI DSS website.
Alain Vansnick, Sales Director EMEA and Americas, at OpenWay says: "We are regularly certified and believe that PA-DSS compliance of a vendor's payment solutions is mandatory in our business. Only by offering a product that complies with all security requirements can we ensure that it will enable the client to profit and compete in the market".
