Thales payShield receives the French Cartes Bancaires HSM certification


Securing online payments is more important than ever. The meteoric rise of e-commerce and digital transactions has made online payments an essential part of doing business but, as a result, has subjected organizations to increased risk. If companies want to continue reaping the rewards of online payments, they must give online payment security the necessary attention, and complying with industry standards is a vital element of achieving that.

Thales is proud to announce that we are one of the first vendors to achieve the latest version of the stringent Cartes Bancaires HSM certification (CB HSM), also known as the SAFIRE v2.2 methodology, for our current payment HSM, payShield 10K.

The certification is the most recent confirmation of Thales’ commitment to the French payment system and its specific security requirements; and our exemplary track record in obtaining MEPS/CB HSM certifications for our previous HSM models – including RG7000, HSM8000, and payShield 9000 – dating back 25 years.
