Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Compaq has been selected as the prime contractor to implement a Visa credit card Internet shopping pilot in the Netherlands. The project is to be carried out in conjunction with GlobeSet, a supplier of techonlogies compliant with the Secure Electronic Transactions (SET) 1.0 standard. In addition to SET technology Compaq will be supplying the iTP Payment Solution, which consists of iTP Wallet, iTP PayServer, iTP Payment CA and iTP Gateway, and is an end-to-end SET-based electronic payments system. The pilot will be using a Compaq payment gateway server cluster to process Visa transactions, and stems from the involvement of Tandem in the Visa project since April 1997. "Compaq, with its Tandem products, solutions and expertise, is the electronic payment market leader in Europe, so this was a natural choice for us," said Hans Bouman, project manager of the pilot. ®
