TAS Group is certified as PCI-DSS Level 1 Service Provider
TAS Group’s POS payment acceptance services have been successfully migrated to the Cloud, with no disruption to the live merchants. The new infrastructure is based on containers (Kubernetes) and makes extensive use of Amazon Web Services (AWS) PaaS services, including Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) and Amazon Aurora.
In addition to the proven advantages typical of the Cloud technology - such as scalability, simplification of Business Continuity, redundancy, the possibility of decreasing the effort dedicated to infrastructure management - the decision to migrate to AWS Cloud was driven by the PCI certification already obtained by this provider, a market leader in the Finance sector.
"AWS Italy has supported our team in a very effective way, both in the design and in the execution of the project," declared Andrea Paolini, IT Infrastructure Manager of TAS Group, "allowing us to obtain the PCI DSS compliance certification at the beginning of November, a few months after the launch of the initiative, and in time to face the hottest period of the year for e-commerce and in-store purchases."
The new service configuration offered by TAS Group is based on AWS regional infrastructures in Dublin, Frankfurt and Milan. The overall infrastructure is also integral part of TAS Global Payment Platform, the highly modular new enterprise payment processing architecture developed by TAS to serve both incumbents and new entrants in the Open Banking and Open Finance ecosystem.

The European collateral management system migration is approaching and its impacts may be wider than expected
SIBOS MEET THE EXPERTS SESSION
The Eurosystem Market infrastructure has recently gone through unprecedented changes: with T2S, TIPS, ESMIG and the Target2 Consolidation we are seeing quite a revolution, maybe for this reason the last step of the programme, ECMS, seems far from the industry spotlights.
The Migration to the European Collateral Management System will mandatory happen in November 2023, with consequences and impacts that may be wider than expected.
Based on ISO20022 standards, with ECMS the central banking collateral mobility takes a step forward, integrates with T2S and Triparty services, providing the opportunity of smoother funding across Europe but requiring higher cybersecurity standards from all participants, new billing standards (CMH-TF) to CSDs and Custodians and better visibility of available liquid assets across the bank’s different businesses.
Many banks have already completed their ECMS assessment: can they afford this evolution keeping manual activities and fragmented processes or does their collateral management need a digital acceleration?
