PCI DSS Requires Transition to Secure Pay Before April 30th, 2018!
TSYS and WorldPay Ending CPGateway Support
TSYS will discontinue support for the NCR Counterpoint Gateway (CPGateway) platform on April 30th, 2018. Merchants who are currently processing EDC payments through TSYS via CPGateway are advised to migrate to NCR Secure Pay before this date to ensure they can continue processing without interruption.
In addition, Worldpay will discontinue support for CPGateway within a similar time frame (we will announce the actual date on which CPGateway support will end for Worldpay merchants as soon as it is confirmed). Again, we strongly encourage merchants who are currently processing EDC payments through Worldpay via CPGateway to migrate to a Worldpay (TCMP) account for NCR Secure Pay to avoid any interruptions.
TLS (Transaction Level Security) 1.2 Transition
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) require all PA-DSS validated payment applications to discontinue the use of “early TLS” (i.e., all versions of SSL and TLS 1.0) by June 30th, 2018.
To comply with this requirement, NCR Secure Pay will no longer accept early TLS connections after 2:30 A.M. on June 5th, 2018. In addition, updates to NCR Counterpoint V8.5.4 and V8.4.6 that will require the use of TLS 1.2 for payment transactions processed through NCR Secure Pay will be released as follows:
- V8.5.4 Patch 002: Scheduled for 2/20/2018
- V188.8.131.52 Service Pack: Scheduled for 3/6/2018
NCR does not plan to release patches or Service Packs to support TLS 1.2 in other versions of NCR Counterpoint.
