Posted on: May 17th, 2017
Filed under: 

The PCI (Payment Card Industry) Council has declared that encryption protocols of SSL and TLS 1.0 will no longer be supported for accepting credit card payments. Merchants accepting credit card payments should be utilizing TLS 1.2 encryption protocols in their systems. In other words, if they do not upgrade to TLS 1.2, customers will not be able to accept any credit card payments.

You should have already heard from us but if not, please reach out to your account executive or manager at once. In order to prevent inability to accept payments, you will be required to apply the required updates from Nodus, AZOX/k-eCommerce, Compass POS or other credit card processor.

Here are the deadlines from the Payment Service Providers:
