Magensa Services - Processing Partner - First Data

Build full-function, EMV-capable POS applications for the retail and restaurant environment. This EMV level 3-certified architecture combines MagTek’s DynaPro, a full-function countertop EMV and magstripe reader, or eDynamo, a magstripe and EMV chip card reader, with Magensa’s secure Decrypt and Forward platform (with optional MPPG gateway) to First Data.

Magensa Services - Processing Partner - TSYS

Moving from selling payment terminals to selling POS solutions can seem overwhelming at first. But, after you have the tools you need in place and a partner supporting you, the process can be quite painless and it allows you to offer your customers more. By partnering with MagTek you can now offer EMV® and mobile POS solutions. The point of sale no longer has to take place at a fixed terminal that handles all of the communications and protocols. The “terminal” now has the freedom to walk a retail floor, pay table-side at restaurants, deliver services wherever they are offered, and to not be a terminal at all – but a smart POS application that can access and do so much more.

MagneFlex Prism - D998200198

MagneFlex Prism is a suite of interface developer tools that reduce the points of development. Instead of using SDKs, APIs, and applets to build an interface to the hardware device, another to interface to the POS application, and another to the gateway, you can build the interface to just MagneFlex. MagneFlex drives the hardware, interfaces with the POS app, and can issue the commands to pack, parse and send the data out for processing. Whether you are on a network client system or using a web-based app, there is a MagneFlex tool for you. This simplifies development and certification and allows you to determine the best ecosystem for each individual environment.

MagneSafe® Secure Ecosystem - MagneFlex - D998200071

MagTek provides hardware characterized by “security from the inside” meaning its hardware protects cardholder and sensitive data at the absolute earliest point of contact. Our MagneSafe® enabled devices secure the data within the magnetic head. The secret keys used to prime the NIST (National Institute of Standards & Technology) approved algorithms are loaded in a TG3/ TR-39, VAOC compliant facility in Seal Beach, CA USA. Encryption Key loading does not occur offshore or in other facilities, so you know how secure your keys are at all times.
