MONTREAL – AnywhereCommerce, a global payments technology provider, today announced that Nomad 2.0, its newest and most innovative mobile point-of-sale (mPOS) appliance for chip-card and magnetic stripe card acceptance, has been certified PCI PTS 3.x and Secure Reading and Exchange of Data (SRED) compliant.

AnywhereCommerce is committed to delivering solutions that meet or exceed the most stringent security standards specified by the industry, and assist merchants in their ongoing efforts to prevent fraud.”
