SGS Brightsight is a PCI-recognised lab, qualified and approved by PCI SSC to perform SPoC, 3DS SDK and CpoC evaluations. SGS Brightsight has a proven track record in software-based security evaluations, and helping our customers with mPOS, Host Card Emulation (HCE) and Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) solutions.
SGS Brightsight is a market leader in PCI PTS approvals, having completed more than 100 PCI-PTS V5.X security evaluations. Pin Transaction Security (PTS) devices enable merchants to capture payment card data and validate approval for a transaction. The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council validated the conformity of the PTS device with the PCI PTS standard. The PCI PTS Point of Interaction (POI) version 6 was released in June 2020. The world's first PCI PTS version 6.x was approved after a security evaluation completed by SGS Brightsight.
The PCI CPoC (PCI Contactless Payments on COTS) programme was introduced in 2019. The PCI CPoC standard provides security and test requirements for payment solutions that enable EMV-based contactless payment acceptance on merchant mobile devices (such as smartphones and tablets) using near-field communication (NFC). This makes it possible to accept low-value payments on cost-effective solutions, which are expected to be attractive to micro and small merchants.
PCI 3DS SDK
3DS software development kits (3DS SDK) are embedded into merchant's mobile applications to facilitate cardholder authentication.
