POS Security Testing refers to POS Device and Application Security Testing that ascertains to the identification of possible/existing threats and security bugs that would compromise the system and would allow unauthorized persons or systems to access private information stored on the device.
POS Application Security testing is the process of testing, analysing, and reporting on the security level or the security posture of the device. It is conducted to identify the client-side security, Server-side security, file system, POS hardware and network security that can turn out to be vulnerabilities and cause an impact on the organization that could be imminent or soon.
As per requirements, QRC is capable of performing POS security testing both onsite as well as offsite.
In an Onsite assessment, a QRC Security operations team personnel will conduct the assessment where in the client needs to provide the POS device and connectivity to QRC system or provide a test system in which QRC Security Operations can install the testing tools required for the onsite assessment.
The offsite assessment would be conducted if the client is ready to provide the POS device to be tested to QRC.
During the entire POS Device and Software security assessment process, our clients are kept up to date with the ongoing progress by means reporting at each stage
Include Scope, Objective, Approach and Pre-requisites to be followed
Includes High-Level findings (Automated testing and Manual Testing) with visualization
Vulnerability reporting with CVE ratings
Final report disclosing the status with fixed or fail status.
Owing to the significant growth in the usage of payment cards in monetary transactions, POS devices play a fundamental role in the entire transaction cycles, managing card data and other sensitive details. Hence, it becomes vital for these devices to undergo thorough security assessments even on upgrades at the software level.
These testing assist developers in remediating the security bug from the POS Device and application and make the device safe from any unauthenticated or unauthorized actions which can cause an impact on the organization.
Regular assessments as such help safeguard both the hardware and the software application from any unauthorized access which can cost the organization both in reputation and resources.
