Kpay is a platform for multi-bank and multi-service electronic payments certified by PCI DSS and PA-DSS. The security of transactions is Kpay's fundamental characteristic, but it also stands out because it enables the retailer in the management of digital services that become an additional source of business: telephone top-ups, smart boxes, gift cards, and bill payment.

Kpay Project Manager


Advantio has worked with Konvergence to provide tailored education and training for staff to ensure they understand the requirements of the PA-DSS. This training allows for the continued development of the KPay application in line with Konvergence’s defined security principles to ensure validation to PA-DSS.

Advantio’s Qualified Security Assessors (QSA’s) provided Konvergence with an initial gap assessment against the PA-DSS. On completion of the gap assessment, Advantio’s QSAs worked with Konvergence staff to implement any strategies needs to mitigate the findings and ensure PA-DSS validation.

Strategies include the provision of any technical security advice needed from Advantio to ensure application development was in line with the payment security standard. Alongside professional consultancy, Advantio assisted Konvergence in the development of all documentation and resources required to attain PA-DSS compliance.

Advantio has provided year on year payment security consultancy to ensure that Konvergence staff are aware and trained in any changes to the payment security standard. Where required, Advantio has provided QSA consultancy to address any changes or new requirements. This has included consultancy to provide additional guidance on a valid copy of the PA-DSS Implementation Guide required for end-users of the payment application.

Advantio is proud to continue to work in partnership with Konvergence, providing yearly validation demonstrating the applications continued commitment and adherence to PA-DSS.
