Secure operation of cash desk systems for reliable transaction security and optimal customer experience.
Reliable and secure operation of cash desk systems at the point of sale is crucial. Digitally operated and connected to central systems, cash desk systems are vulnerable to attacks if not adequately protected.
The importance of their security is not limited to cashless payments made with bank or credit cards or via mobile devices. Even a checkout accepting cash payments cannot be carried out if the system of the cash desk is unable to obtain the price of items.
Another key factor why cash desk system security is highly important is the security of information and data. Performing cashless payments means transferring and exchanging data from the point of sale to the payment processor, bank and back, in order to approve or deny the transaction.
Ensuring that this data is secured and protected via specific mechanisms such as tokenization. Furthermore, ensuring the trustworthiness of payment terminals and other devices, systems and software digitally connected in the resellers IT infrastructure is paramount.
