Galitt KaNest®-ICC Terminal Test Suite, a card simulator enabling the execution of functional tests and End-to-End tests, has just received the Visa confirmation for the implementation of the Visa VCPS v2.2c Test Plan. An acknowledgement of Galitt test tools quality and efficiency.

Galitt KaNest®-ICC Terminal Test Suites enable performing reference test plans defined by payment brands, in order to qualify payment terminals for use with cards and devices. With the qualification of the KaNest®-ICC VCPS-ART Terminal Test Suite (implementing the Visa VCPS v2.2c Test Plan), KaNest®-ICC is now confirmed to execute the Visa reference test plan, in order to certify payment terminals for use with cards and handsets.


Galitt KaNest®-ICC Terminal Test Suites are the perfect tools for certification laboratories, payment terminal vendors and systems integrators alike, as they allow to complete the needed evaluations to ensure card acceptance devices comply with the specifications issued by all leading payment brands. Galitt long-standing presence on the test tool market and its ubiquitous offer has garnered the company a high level of recognition throughout the secure transactions industry.

Thanks to their automation features, complemented by those brought by the VCPS Device Testing Automation Program, Galitt test tools automatically execute the required test plans as many times as needed. In addition, they automatically generate test reports in multiple formats, allowing an increased productivity and freeing the operator from the burden.
François Inglebert, Marketing Director, Testing Solutions, at Galitt declares: “The Visa confirmation once again demonstrates that our long-lasting involvements in terminal testing automation are recognized by major payment schemes. Galitt is the only test tool vendor able to support the terminal test plans specified by all major payment brands (American Express, Discover, Mastercard, Visa…) and consequently used by the major accredited laboratories, such as Applus+ IT laboratory China in the present case.”
