HST launches EMV Issuance in a Box with Thales HSMs

São Paulo, January 15, 2015 – HST announced today the launch of its new solution “EMV Issuance in a Box”. This is a unique solution that can handle the task of Instant or Centralized Card Issuance in a simplified and cost-effective manner. This preconfigured, comprehensive solution is packaged as an appliance and contains everything necessary to personalize and print EMV cards in a small form factor, making it very simple to deploy and maintain.

The appliance utilizes a Thales NShield Solo+ HSM (Hardware Secure Module) which enables secure executions of custom security-critical application codes within a tamper-resistant hardware boundary. EMV Issuance in a Box meets or surpasses Visa and MasterCard security requirements and supports most payment applications as well as most printers from major manufacturers.

“Considering the HSM is the most important physical component in our solution, we were extra cautious in choosing the right suppliers. Thales proved to be an exceptional partner with not only a superior product but also excellent support” said Sergio Jachtchenco, President of HST.

Financial institutions of all sizes can benefit from EMV Issuance in a Box. By taking control of the issuance process, financial institutions are able to make issuance more agile and cost effective. EMV Issuance in a Box can help banks and financial institutions reach customers earlier and increase the likelihood of activation of the credit card.
