Barclaycard keep pushing me to become PCI DSS compliant but are Barclaycard compliant themselves?

All our card machine products are in line with the PTS Standard. In addition, it’s our responsibility to ensure we comply with the PTS throughout the life of the solution.

Barclaycard Payment Gateways (also known as Barclaycard Smartpay A, B, S, and Smartpay I/ePDQ) are compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.

The Solve DataShield P2PE Solutions for VeriFone and Ingenico are also compliant with the P2PE standard. (Search under Company tab “The Logic Group”)

Authorisation is the point at which the transactions exit the merchant’s environment and enter into either the fully PCI DSS Compliant BT Cardway or TNS connectivity solutions. TNS and BT forward the transactions into Barclays Secure Data Centres for processing and onward routing into the appropriate Card Scheme (VISA/MasterCard/etc.) via their respective dedicated devices, which are also hosted in our Barclays Secure Data Centres.

Settlement is the point at which the settlement file exits the merchant’s environment and enters into the fully PCI DSS Compliant TNS connectivity solutions. TNS then forwards the settlement files into Barclays Secure Data Centres for processing and onward routing into the appropriate Card Scheme (Visa, Mastercard, etc.) via their respective dedicated devices, which are also hosted in our Barclays Secure Data Centres.

Barclaycard Payment Solutions acknowledges that it is responsible for the security of transaction data submitted by the merchants to Barclaycard Payment Solutions whilst in the Barclaycard Payment Solutions environment to the extent it is stored, processed and transmitted by Barclaycard Payment Solutions on the merchants’ behalf.
