    WATERLOO, ON, Feb. 26 /CNW/ - RDM Corporation (TSX: RC), a leading
developer of specialized software and hardware products for electronic payment
processing and Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) solutions, announced today that
the RDM SYNERGY II is the first All-in-One payment terminal to achieve
application validation with Payment Card Industry Standard Security Council's
(PCI SSC) Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) program
(previously called the Visa Payment Application Best Practice (PABP) Program).
    "Validation with Payment Card Industry Standard Security Council's
Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) program demonstrates RDM's
commitment to maintaining a secure and reliable platform that assists
merchants in protecting themselves against unscrupulous hackers intending to
steal valuable information", said Douglas Newman, President and CEO. "RDM
Corporation is pleased to offer the first all-in-one payment terminal to
receive the PA-DSS validation designation further underscoring the strong
foundation of the RDM SYNERGY II product."

solution. Utilizing RDM's industry leading and proprietary Progressive MICR
Method and imaging technology, RDM SYNERGY II is ideal for Electronic Check
Conversion (ECC), Check 21 transactions, as well as credit, debit, EBT and
loyalty cards. Standard on RDM SYNERGY II is a magnetic stripe reader, graphic
display, 20-key pad, franking acknowledgement, multiple application support,
thermal printer, Ethernet and modem communication options and a powerful

    The PCI SSC developed the PA-DSS based upon the Visa Payment Application
Best Practices (PABP) to direct software vendors to create and maintain secure
payment applications to reduce vulnerability of merchants and minimize data
breaches. Compliance with the PA-DSS is determined based upon data and
information developed by an evaluation of the application by a Payment
Application Qualified Security Assessor approved by the PCI SSC. Today the
adherence to PCI DSS is mandatory for banks, processing centers, financial
organizations and merchants working with payment brands.
