Fujian Newland Payment Technology Co., Ltd. (Newland), a global leader in the supply of high-performance payment devices and secure management infrastructure, is delighted to announce that its bestselling N910 and N700 Smart POS terminals have received Common.SECC certification. With this new security approval, Newland will begin deploying its high-performance Android payment devices in markets like Germany and the UK, which require additional security measures.
Common.SECC is an international security certification scheme for card payment terminals (also known as points of interaction or POIs). Currently Common.SECC covers payment terminals deployed at merchants in Germany and the UK, but this scope may be extended to other countries that are interested in adopting the Common.SECC standard. In Germany, the Common.SECC process replaces many aspects of the local terminal security evaluation process. It is now used in place of the previous UK Common Criteria security evaluation process in the UK.
With this prestigious certification, Newland retains its position as a high-security device supplier and demonstrates the robust security credentials of its Android Smart POS product series. With a 5” colour touchscreen and sleek, ergonomic footprint and built-in printer, N910 allows merchants to combine cash register and store management software with payment and value-add service applications. Its sister product, the N700, runs on the same core platform, but enables greater mobility with a slim-line compact design, wireless connectivity for external printers and enhanced scanning capabilities that can be used for QR code payments as well as scanning barcodes, for initiating a sale or carrying out stock checks. Both N910 and N700 benefit from Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and 4G communication options and support all major international contact and contactless payment cards and NFC wallets, and multiple local payment methods.
The Common.SECC approval process for Newland's N910 and N700 devices was fulfill by SGS Brightsight, the number one security lab in the world with over 35 years of experience in the security evaluation of electronic payment-related products and many other types of evaluation.
According to Ernest Shen, Executive VP & CTO at Newland: "Europe is one of the most important markets for Newland, experiencing steady growth over recent years. We are thrilled to see that our high-performance Android payment devices will be deployed in markets like Germany and the UK with this latest security approval. Newland has been a leading player in the payment industry for decades, providing high-quality payment devices and related services. We will continue to focus our efforts on achieving local market certifications for our products and ensuring that customers and partners receive first-class support for their payment solution deployments” .

We lookforward to contunue our parrtnership andwe hope that many more security approvals, including IOS, will follow", says Thomas Jorgensen (Chief Commericial Officer) at SGS Brightsight.
