Charlotte, NC – January 31, 2024 – Emporos, the industry’s leading Pharmacy Commerce Solution, including Point of Sale, announced today that it is PCI certified on PCI DSS version 4.0 as a Level 1 Service Provider. This recognition ensures the highest level of security for Emporos customers, giving them peace of mind that the tools they’re using to conduct pharmacy transactions are safe and secure.

As an early adopter of PCI DSS version 4.0 status, Emporos understands the many security standards that are critical to patient safety and the pharmacy industry. Choosing non-compliance with PCI DSS version 4.0 by the deadline has an array of potential consequences from regulatory fines and penalties, loss of payment processing privileges, loss of patient trust, data breaches, increased security costs, and legal fees consequences for merchants.
