The other T7 models and versions are not. The machine is at ‘end of life’. This means the merchant can still purchase them, but their lifecycle is coming to an end.

  1. I’m confused as I have not found any evidence that the Hyper T7PLUS is PIN Transaction Security (PTS) validated or PCI compliant (which really isn’t possible since PCI compliance applies to an organizational level only, not at a device level).

    • End users are typically unaware of the different Hypercom t7p versions and the acceptability of them. I have a client that probably had about 40 units, all different versions, which is why I showed all three units.

      You are correct, they are not PIN devices. The PIN pad is an add-on option that connects to the device, and PIN devices are specifically certified for PCI PED compliance. (Related article List of approved pin entry devices ie pinpad terminals http://tinyurl.com/pinpads
      Although terminals are not specifically identified as compliant via any published list, the merchant use of them falls under PCI DSS standards. If the terminal hardware, firmware, and or application data is such that it does not enable a merchant to meet current PCI DSS standards, the processor will block the new terminal from being ‘boarded’.

      Additionally, a processor may set it’s own standards for acceptable risk. For example, if an older terminal cannot be programmed to hide full card data, the processor may have a policy in place to not allow those terminals on their platform because of the high risk associated with it. Each processor has a list of acceptable terminals, though it’s not published to the public.

      Related security: PA-DSS, payment application data security standards.

      To correct the article, my clients are able to board the Hypercom T7Plus with 35 keys, in picture on the far right, on First Data and Chase Paymentech. The other ones they cannot.

  2. Can you clarify how the Hypercom T7p terminal is compliant yet I cannot find it listed anywhere on the PCI website?

    Is it a combination of hardware, firmware and application data? If so how would I go about cross-referencing to build a case for compliance?

    I am seeking to overturn a previous auditor finding in this regard, so I’m really hoping that your input will help me remove this finding

  3. Hi, I have a Hypercom T-7 Plus P/N:010218-006 ZZA. My merchant services provider indicated this model is no longer compliant. Do you know if this is currently the case? Thank you for your help with this.

  4. A merchant services provider has the right to determine what equipment is acceptable. One might say it’s OK and another might not. Typically if already in service merchants are not forced to replace until end of service. However, if opening a new account, an older unit may not be allowed. I’m not familiar with the specific model you have.

    With end of service near, it’s doubtful any merchant services provider would let a merchant board a new unit.

  5. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a excellent job with this. Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Internet explorer. Superb Blog!
