ITCARD cooperates with VISA and MasterCard in several areas, including card issuing and acceptance, ATMs and cash in machines, recyclers, EFT POS, and customer and helpdesk services on behalf of several banks.

Due to its rapidly growing business, ITCARD needed to find a new PKI solution at short notice that could handle a large-scale environment with more than 18,900 ATMs and POS devices. PrimeKey was one of the competitors that replied to ITCARD’s RFP. The main reasons for shortlisting PrimeKey were the EJBCA technology and the ability to give correct and reliable answers.
PrimeKey met all the requirements: delivery at very short notice (two months), optimisation of all costs, separation of duties, dual control and other rules required by PCI/DSS.
PrimeKey’s PKI Appliance offered ITCARD a complete feature set that operates a full service PKI with high availability using EJBCA, which has been certified in accordance with the Common Criteria. This is the easiest and most efficient way to deploy an enterprise PKI system without the challenges of complex installation and integration procedures.
