Nowadays, more and more people rely on the Web for many day-to-day transactions that once required their physical presence. These include e-banking and online shopping. However, as technology becomes more sophisticated, fraud also becomes more prevalent. These occurrences generate billion-dollar losses and bring distress most especially to the banking sector. APG8201 PINhandy smart card reader addresses this problem.

APG8201 PINhandy is a handheld smart card device featuring a keypad and an LCD screen. It operates as a USB smart card reader with PINpad. It has Secure PIN Entry (SPE) feature to protect every PIN code from attacks, such as viruses or USB sniffers. It performs secure authentication for log-in before the user can perform transactions like online transactions and banking log-ons. A cost-efficient response to man-in-the-middle attacks, APG8201 may be delivered in bulk by banks to individual customers, to aid them in handling sensitive data.


APG8201 is compliant with major banking, computing and safety standards such as Mastercard® Chip Authentication Program (CAP), VISA Dynamic Passcode Authentication (DPA) and EMV Level 1 Certification.
