The largest home improvement and garden centre retailer in the UK is B&Q. Employing more than 30,000 people nationwide, it currently has 350 stores in the UK and eight stores in Ireland.
In order to conform to PCI P2PE in store, B&Q was required to update its entire PIN pad estate to a solution with PTS 3.x approval and SRED capability. This would make B&Q the first major high street retailer to implement a total PCI P2PE solution in the UK.
To achieve this, it needed a trusted provider who could offer a complete omnichannel, PaaS solution, with the capability and expertise to implement a PCI P2PE validated solution, for a high-volume retail business on this scale.
