EFTPOS security & fraud prevention

More payment security features to protect you

At Tyro, your security is our number one priority. That’s why we’ve built EFTPOS features that work to make your business safe.

Increased privacy

Number pad shields on each EFTPOS machine provide the privacy that cardholders are looking for.

Secure PIN entry

Every cardholder PIN entered into a Tyro EFTPOS machine is encrypted, meaning we never store the information on the device.

Secure systems & applications

Tyro develops and maintains secure systems and applications.

Regular vulnerability scans

We perform regular scans on our systems to ensure we can detect and prevent future threats from occurring.

Certified under IRAP

Certified under the Information Security Registered Assessor Program (IRAP) of the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) for our Medicare Easyclaim solution.

PIN Transaction Security (PCI-PTS) certified

Tyro’s EFTPOS machines are Payment Card Industry – PIN Transaction Security (PCI-PTS) certified. This validates that the hardware, firmware, mechanical and manufacturing designs have met sufficient standard to ensure that PIN data and other cardholder data (e.g. track data) cannot be compromised.

APN and CECS approved devices

Tyro EFTPOS machines have been approved by the Australian Payments Network (APN) and Consumer Electronic Clearing System (CECS) which ensures cardholder and PIN information is protected in line with industry best practice.
