Posted January 9, 2013

Motorola is bringing retail checkout scanning into the mobile age with its MP6000 multi-plane scanner/scale, an imaging-based bioptic solution developed to help customers quickly checkout at retail stores.

The MP6000 can scan traditional paper-based bar codes as well as mobile coupons and bar codes delivered on the screen of a mobile device. It offers a flexible design that can grow with a retailer’s needs and will include modules such as scale to weigh produce and expansion ports for connection to handheld scanners and electronic article surveillance (EAS) devices while providing expandability for future requirements like RFID.

To help move customers quickly through the checkout process and eliminate the challenge of trying to align the bar code, the MP6000 will provide full six-sided coverage with 100 percent imaging technology designed to offer excellent performance and better read rates than laser or hybrid bioptic scanners on damaged, poorly printed and overwrapped bar codes.

5 Ways To Improve Security In Your Point-of-Sale System

Posted January 2, 2013

Many business owners think that meeting the basic requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) protocols will keep their point-of-sale systems from being hacked. But here’s the truth: hacking into retailer POS systems is a recurring problem worldwide, even for retailers who meet PCI DSS standards.

In just the last couple of years, several high-profile cases have received media coverage:

  • In late 2011, a scheme was discovered that involved hackers from Romania stealing credit card data from hundreds of POS systems, including those from 150 Subway franchises. More than 146,000 cards were compromised, and losses have been estimated at up to $10 million.
  • In September 2012, hackers got into POS systems in 63 Barnes & Noble stores in nine states. The company removed POS card readers from all its stores while the incident was investigated.
  • In December 2012, an Israeli security firm found a strain of malware infecting hundreds of POS systems in 40 countries. By injecting malware into a system’s iexplore.exe file on Windows servers, the malware hijacked data that could be used for cloning credit cards.

Countless other cases of POS “hacking” come from insiders: your employees. Keeping on top of POS security is essential for every business. Here are 5 ways to improve your POS security.
