VeriFone Announces Full-Function Vx Solutions PIN Entry System

Ergonomic, Fully Loaded Vx 810 Features Future-Proof Design with Multiple Connectivity Options and Expansion Port for Contactless or Other Add-Ons

PARIS, France (Cartes, Stand #3 G 031) – November 13, 2007 – VeriFone Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: PAY) today announced the Vx 810, a full-function PIN entry system based on the architecture of the popular Vx Solutions family. The Vx Solutions line is one of the most widely certified and adopted payment solutions with more than 2 million systems sold worldwide.

The Vx 810 provides merchants and banks with a future-proof design accommodating multiple connectivity options and a Secure Digital Input Output (SDIO) port to support add-on components, including an option for contactless payments and those initiated from mobile phones using the emerging Near Field Communications, or NFC, standard.

“The Vx 810 is VeriFone’s top-of-the-line, programmable PIN entry solution based on the proven and popular Verix architecture,” said Paul Rasori, VeriFone vice president of global product marketing. “This feature-rich system provides all you could want in a PIN entry system, with a full array of connectivity options and a future-proof, modular design to support additional options that banks and merchants may want to subsequently deploy.”

Utilizing VeriFone’s patent-pending MAXui design, the ultra-sleek Vx 810 combines the smallest footprint with the largest user interface in an ergonomic design with ATM-style interface, large keypad and high resolution, 16-line white backlit display for ease of use.

A high-speed processor, large memory, multiple connectivity options and modular expansion capabilities ensure that the Vx 810 will be a viable payment solution for years to come. The system supports a broad range of payment and value-added applications and meets the latest security standards, including PCI PED as well as EMV Level 1 and 2. A single port supports multiple connectivity options including RS-232, USB Client, USB Host, Ethernet, and power over Ethernet.

The Vx 810 is available now. An option scheduled for availability during the first half of 2008 will include a base unit with a thermal printer, modem, Ethernet, USB and serial ports to provide all the features needed for a complete payment solution. A contactless payment module will also be available in the first half of 2008 to provide merchants and banks an extremely cost-effective means to support any form of contactless payment whether presented via card, fob or NFC enabled mobile device.
