Protected Transaction Keypad (PTK)
A Virtual PIN Pad
PTK is an on-screen PIN pad in which users click on the numbers on their screen to key sensitive payment information instead of using their keyboard. This input mechanism bypasses the keyboard and mitigates screen grabbing malware because the numbers appear in random locations on the screen. By preventing malware scraping, this security method proves the presence of a human being at the PC and helps reduce many sophisticated fraudulent attacks on cardholders, businesses, and financial institutions. PTK technology saves merchants time and money by:
- Limiting PCI scope
- Reducing merchant risk
- Lowering compliance costs
