NewNet Secure Transactions Inc., (“NewNet”) a leading provider of innovative solutions for secure payments to financial institutions, banks and payment providers, has partnered with Calculus Networks, Mexico, (“Calculus”) to deploy multiple AccessGuard 1000 (“AG1000”) systems for a major payment provider in Mexico. The PCI validated NewNet payment solution offers secure transaction routing and transport via cloud based virtualized applications or physical environments.
NewNet’s AG1000 consolidates HTTPS and TLS/SSL transaction routing, TLS/SSL acceleration and load balancing within a compact rack mounted footprint. Exceptional scalability and reliability are achieved while optimizing efficiency. The AG1000 transports millions of transactions per day as a high-density transport gateway that uniquely links IP, Mobile POS and Web/E-commerce transaction data with authorization servers supporting ISO 20022, TPDU, ISO8583 and custom transaction protocols.
The AG1000 terminates TLS/SSL sessions that originate from mobile, broadband and IP supported POS, ATMs and smart phone based payment terminals. Transaction protocols including VISA I, VISA II, ISO 8583, TPDU (Transport Protocol Data Unit), and Custom Protocols are utilized with hardware optimized efficiency. This allows AG1000 to seamlessly interoperate with next generation and legacy systems for faster, reliable and more secure transaction routing within a single system.
Deploying the AG1000 has enabled the payment provider’s network to optimize transaction throughput and improve security with a return on investment enhanced by the system’s superior performance, and the rapid design, configuration and implementation by Calculus Networks. NewNet’s global services team together with Calculus’ team worked together to deliver a quick implementation with high quality on-site training for the service provider’s network and systems management team ensuring a smooth transition to this highly scalable platform.
