Miura Systems Implements Futurex’s VirtuCrypt Cloud Solution to Securely Automate RKL for Payments
Futurex streamlines security for Miura’s worldwide mobile payment environments
BULVERDE, Texas and LONDON, December 1, 2020 —Futurex, a leader in hardened, enterprise-class data security solutions, and global payment technology leader, Miura Systems, announced the implementation of Futurex’s VirtuCrypt cloud payment hardware security module (HSM) solution. This enables Miura Systems to better manage and load cryptographic keys into its payment terminals worldwide, using remote key loading to streamline the process.
Anytime a payment card is presented at a retail payment terminal (physical or digital), a secure key encrypts the PIN or the primary account number (PAN). An encryption key must be securely loaded into that payment device. For organizations with widespread fixed or mobile payment terminal networks, the manual process of direct key injection can be a significant operational expense with a high susceptibility to human error. With remote key loading, also known as remote key injection, this secure deployment process is streamlined, and the need to load devices in a dedicated key-loading facility is eliminated, delivering important savings in time and money. It also provides the flexibility to deliver secure key updates directly to devices deployed in a live environment.
With millions of payment devices installed worldwide, Miura Systems brings mobile payment acceptance to retail, hospitality, financial services, and other industries.
“We were looking for a cloud-based solution to help us deliver scale, as well as streamline the key replacement process, and meet future compliance; that’s where Futurex helped us,” said Darren Shaw, chief product officer at Miura Systems. “Futurex’s VirtuCrypt enables us to remotely inject our terminals across the globe with ease, radically streamlining the deployment and maintenance of our payment devices and customer use cases worldwide.”
“Miura is both a pioneer in mobile payment acceptance and a leader in embracing cloud technology to future-proof its crypto payment processes,” said Roland Allen, general manager, EMEA at Futurex. “Miura Systems turned to us to securely automate the manual key loading process with our Futurex VirtuCrypt cloud security solution.”
