EMV chip technology is now available to consumers and merchants in the United States. These chip cards protect in-store payments by generating a unique, one-time code needed for the transaction to be approved. This feature makes it virtually impossible to counterfeit cards, helping to eliminate in-store fraud. As of October 1, 2015, if a chip card is used at a traditional magnetic stripe-only terminal and the purchase is a counterfeit transaction, the merchant generally holds the liability since the card issuer has made the investment in chip technology to make transactions more secure. If the merchant utilizes a chip enabled terminal, the merchant will not be held liable for this type of counterfeit transaction. Most, if not all POS and ECR OEMs have elected to remain "Out of Scope" which means that a peripheral terminal is required with every system to accept EMV/chip cards.

Equinox developed the merchant-facing Apollo MFD device and paired it with our new highly-secure consumer-facing Apollo CFD. Because no card data passes through the MFD, no extra security hardware or software are required on the device. This means that the Apollo CFD handles all sensitive cardholder data and communications, while the MFD acts as a merchant interface, enabling the Apollo platform to provide merchants with a feature-rich robust consumer-facing solution.
