QUOTES

Elliot Bunney, Managing Director, Enkryptis

“We wanted to demonstrate to the payment industry in South Africa how seriously we take meeting industry standards by securing these validations on PCI P2PE and PCI PIN for our key injection facility. P2PE will soon be the gold standard for all payment solution providers and merchants. We are already in final discussions with leading players in the payment industry including banks, device vendors and payment service providers to provide key injection, software loading and repair services. However, unlike other key injection providers, Enkryptis specialises in these services and our focus is on delivering a world class, quality service.”

Paolo Basilio, Head of P2PE, Foregenix

“Enkryptis has demonstrated an excellent level of compliance to the PCI P2PE and PCI PIN Security standards. I commend them on their efforts in achieving this very important status. The facility’s access control is fully biometric and uses a combination of facial recognition and fingerprint reading to identify users which is very impressive. Foregenix have had extensive experience in assessing KIFs all over the world and this is the very first fully biometric KIF that we have come across. This just proves that South Africa is able to compete with and even lead the way when it comes to payment security. This is Foregenix’s first year working with Enkryptis and they have demonstrated that they are a company who has security and industry standards such as PCI as a top priority which is critical in today’s payment enviroment.”
