Introducing POS Hardware Monitor

First Data and Termtegrity bring you POS Hardware Monitor, the industry's only visual point-of-sale monitoring solution. It allows merchants to inventory, examine, and verify that their terminals and point-of-sale systems have not been modified or tampered with. POS Hardware Monitor simplifies and automates the inspection process with familiar, user-friendly smartphone technology, making it easy for merchants to quickly perform this essential security activity and get right back to work.


POS Hardware Monitor allows merchants to keep a visual inventory of their POS equipment. Merchants store photographs of their devices in a "known good" state, along with location and other identifying information. Barcodes are used to simplify subsequent identification of devices.


POS Hardware Monitor drives the POS inspection process. Users are guided to periodically photograph each POS device in inventory and compare the latest images to the "known good" reference images to detect differences that may be potential indicators of compromise.


POS Hardware Monitor allows merchants to instantly produce reports showing the status of each device in inventory along with its inspection history. These reports provide proof for internal or external auditors that inspection is occurring according to policy


POS Hardware Monitor is delivered in a software-as-a-service model. Users access the application through an attractive, responsive, browser-based interface.

POS Hardware Monitor leverages mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets to capture visual images of the POS. Images and data are stored securely on Termtegrity's servers, separating the chain-of-custody for visual evidence. Workflow features ensure that all devices are examined according to the merchant defined schedule.


Software-as-Service Model: No on-premise hardware or software to install or maintain.

  • Works with popular smartphones: Familiar, user-friendly, guided iOS or Android apps record images of the POS.
  • Easy-to-use: Takes less than a minute per device to inventory and examine.
  • Automates workflow: Makes sure that inspections are done on schedule.
