PED Patrol

PED Patrol is an easy-to-use PED device management solution for tracking, monitoring and auditing retail estates of Chip & PIN devices. PED Patrol protects devices that capture payment card data, via physical interaction with the card, from tampering and substitution.

The solution automates the capture of device serial numbers and deployment locations and provides regular monitoring and audit services. It removes the challenge of knowing where individual devices are deployed, how they are performing and if a potentially rogue unit has been introduced into a retail estate. Once deployed, PED Patrol always knows where PED devices are in a retail estate. Alerts are generated if a device goes missing, is tampered with, or a substitute device is added. Once configured, PED Patrol can be left to communicate with specified support personnel via email updates and alerts or via the application’s management console.
