PCI 2.x Compliant. USB Powered. Signature Capture.

Prevent personal cardholder data breaches without compromising the speed and convenience of your cardholders’ financial transactions with IPAD SC. The advanced design of the IPAD SC combines the functionality of a traditional PIN pad plus the convenience of an integrated signature capture pad, and the data protection of a 3-track MagneSafe™ secure card reader authenticator, secured by the MagneSafe Security Architecture. It is the most comprehensive, end-to-end security solution available. IPAD SC immediately encrypts data at the point of swipe so personal information is never "in the clear." And using MagTek®'s advanced MagneSafe security features, ATM, debit, credit, gift cards and more are authenticated using MagnePrint®, a dynamically generated digital identifier already part of the magnetic stripe card used to render any counterfeit or cloned cards useless.

With IPAD SC, encryption takes place within an encapsulated magnetic read head as the card is swiped eliminating the chance of intercepting clear text data. As a result, the data is never "in the clear," even for a few milliseconds. IPAD SC's data encryption scheme uses industry standard Triple DES and AES giving you the flexibility to manage decryption services yourself or via an outsourcing service, without the risk imposed by unproven, proprietary encryption algorithms. IPAD SC uses a 32bit security processor and has flexible data formatting and masking capabilities for maintaining compatibility with existing software.

The IPAD SC is a multi functional handheld POS terminal with keypad input, graphics display output on a 128x64 pixel screen,  and magnetic card stripe reading with the included Magnesafe SCRA peripheral.  The product is built around a secure, low powered SOC featuring a 96 MHz MIPS32 4KSD RISC processor with included RAM and Flash memory, USB 2.0 full speed connectivity, real-time clock, and battery-powered security protections.

IPAD SC also supports secure remote key injection eliminating the need to return the unit in the event a new key is required.

MagTek’s cost-effective key injection service ensures that our PIN encrypting devices (e.g., IPAD® and IntelliPIN®) and encrypting MagneSafe™ secure card reader authenticators will be deployed with full security integration prior to deployment with no need to ship the units to a third party for key injection. Additionally, a detailed shipping report with itemized data including serial numbers help MagTek to furnish a comprehensive audit trail for each device.

MagTek is an official ESO (Encryption Support Organization). For more details on MagTek and Magensa's PCI-DSS or ESO status, visit VISA's Global Registry of Service Providers.
