Stress-free transport of sensitive payment data
Tokenization hides the original sensitive payment data so you're safe from breach. It also protects cardholder data, reduces risk and helps with PCI compliance.
End-to-end (point-to-point) encryption protects cardholder data from the swipe all the way to the processor. That's total payment assurance.
Our integrated Checkout solution allows customers to make online purchases, and it works seamlessly with our payment gateway. This ensures that every transaction is swift, smooth and secure as sensitive payment data is transmitted forward for processing.
After transactions are entered into the Virtual Terminal for processing and management, our payment gateway sends the encrypted payment data securely to all major CC processors.
