Retail Data Security Solutions

Retail Data Security Banner

The everyday consumer assumes that when they make a purchase, either online or in the checkout-line, their card data is handed off to a trusted source with proper security in place. They don’t see the complicated ecosystem that exists to process that transaction, nor fully understand the retail data security mechanisms that make up the foundation for protecting customer data.

The retail ecosystem is complex. One compliance standard doesn't cover all vulnerabilities points. In order to offset the chance of a breach, it is critical for retailers to understand the vulnerability points, and establish a plan of action to mitigate the risks.

PCI DSS Compliance

Customer Data Encryption and Tokenization 

Beyond cardholder data, retailers need to protect all sensitive data wherever it exists, and limit access to this data. Utilizing encryption and/or tokenization is the most effective way to secure data, even when a breach has occurred.

Securing the Point-of-Sale Devices and Applications Icon

Securing the Point-of-Sale Devices and Applications

Security needs to include the point-of-sale or point-of-interaction terminals, and the payment application software. These devices are more connected than ever before, and even more appealing target for an attacker. For this reason, code signing is used to issue unique identities, and securely push software updates to the devices in the field.

Point-to-Point Encryption Icon

Point-to-Point Encryption

Point-to-Point Encryption encrypts card data from the earliest possible moment of its capture, and ensures that data remains in a consistent encrypted state until it arrives at the payment gateway. This approach is the cleanest approach to transaction protection.

eCommerce Security Icon

eCommerce Security

eCommerce poses even different, but equally challenging issues, compared to the traditional retail environment. By creating an encrypted tunnel, through a secure socket layer (SSL), retailers are able to protect their online customers’ data from the earliest possible moment—establishing a secure, encrypted communication session to allow private information to be transmitted across open networks such as the Internet.
