PA-DSS (Payment Application Data Security Standard)

The Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) is a subset of PCI-DSS, and was developed to provide a definitive data standard for software vendors that develop payment applications. The standard aims to prevent developed payment applications for third parties from storing prohibited secure cardholder data. Fortunately, all of Skyzer’s payment solutions have been deemed “Out of Scope” of the PA-DSS standard by Paymark as at no stage does cardholder data ever leave the payment device unencrypted.
