The banks selection of SWITCHWARE® G4 was made after identifying it as the most cost effective and reliable solution for its long planned migration to an EMV compliant payment processing platform.

For nearly a decade, CSFi has offered a proven integrated solution for EMV acquiring, issuing, and issuer-processing support with SWITCHWARE®. Our solution maintains the integrity of the payment transaction and takes full advantage of how EMV technology provides a secure way to handle card creation and cardholder authentication. Once deployed, liability can be shifted away to those who cannot support EMV chip cards, which means EMV compliant issuers and acquirers are absolved of any loss.


SWITCHWARE’s EMV support functions will provide Prosperity Bank with an “end-to-end” EMV solution for both ATM acquiring and smart card issuance, enabling conformance to current and future EMV standards for payment processing of smart card transactions and include:

  • Offline PIN verification
  • Application cryptograms (ARQC/ARPC validation)
  • Card risk management (offline risk parameters and authorization controls)
  • Card security code (CSC, CVV, CVV2), Chip card security Code (iCVV or Chip CVC)
  • Card verification results (CVR) support
  • Cardholder Verification Methods (offline, fallback, online, signature, no CVM)
  • All chip cards (ICC, contact or contactless, dual interface)
