Taking POS Out of PCI Scope

Isolated Payment Appliance (IPA) is an in-store device that reduces the PCI scope of the POS network by isolating the payments portion of the purchase experience away from the POS.

IPA manages the payments portion of your customers' checkout experience by directly driving the payment devices, such as PINpads, on behalf of the POS network. This serves to reduce the scope of the POS responsibilities of integrating to new PINpad devices and managing PCI regulations.
