The recent news of the Vantiv-Mercury deal will keep the POS and payments channels buzzing for some time. It’s got us talking here at our office about all the implications. One of my colleagues asked the rhetorical question, “Do our retail and restaurant IT VAR subscribers realize how important they are to the payments industry?” Great question.  Do you?

By now, you’ve probably heard about the credit card data breach that occurred at Target and other retail chains over the holidays. While Target hasn’t released all the details of what happened, malware was supposedly involved and many believe the culprit was a nasty bit of software known as BlackPOS. Some are also speculating that malware similar to BlackPOS, called Reedum, was to blame.

Since the news of the breach hit, there have been many questions posed. How could this happen to Target, supposedly one of the most technically advanced retailers? Is encrypted data truly safe? Would EMV have prevented the breach? Does PCI compliance have any value?

Regardless of the questions being asked, let’s be clear about one thing: the Target breach could have been prevented and the data of your customers can be made safe. Today. With no chip-and-PIN or EMV.

As we wrap up our February issue, which includes a feature article on a NYC-based VAR doing quite well selling Harbortouch, I thought about how many resellers we've spoken with in the past couple years who've embraced the Harbortouch model of "free" POS. The booing still exists, primarily from companies in the channel that made their livings off of high margin sales, but I hear a lot more cheering than anything else nowadays.
