MSI Reduces PCI Burden for Hotel Operators

news_01 Jun. 01, 2013Phoenix, AZ (USA) — June 1, 2013 — Multi-Systems, Inc. (MSI), a true cloud services hospitality technology solutions provider, today announced its new payment platform solution, MSI CloudPay™, to debut at HITEC, June 25-27, 2013 in Minneapolis. MSI CloudPay™ offers secure payment card capture, storage, and transaction processing services through MSI’s simplified handling of advanced technologies (including tokenization, point-to-point encryption [P2PE], and MSI SecureRes).

Mark Loyd, Chief Strategy Officer stated, “Using MSI CloudPay™ as a payment card processing solution resolves 94% of all PCI mandates. This is a tremendous reduction of the work and money spent by hotel operators to keep their properties PCI validated. MSI CloudPay™ is a simple solution which eliminates property networks from PCI scrutiny. The net result is less cost, less risk, and far less pain. Our hotel operators can rest assured their PMS and computer systems are compliant and their guests’ payment cards are secure.”

One other key PCI vulnerability many hotel operators overlook is the transmission of payment card data directly into their networks through Central Reservation System interfaces. MSI’s SecureRes ensures that card data is secured through tokenization before it reaches the property network.

Establishing and maintaining a PCI-compliant network is expensive, time-consuming, and requires continual monitoring. Use of MSI CloudPay™ simplifies the PCI compliance process by completely removing the need to validate network security. This reduces the cost for network equipment, security software, appliances, and labor.

“We have always felt one of the best ways to serve our customers is to reduce headaches and pain associated with technology, such as PCI compliance,” concluded Mr. Loyd. “MSI CloudPay™ does just that. It gets rid of the headache and can provide the confidence that the hotel is 100% compliant.”
