TRUSTCOMMERCE PARTNERS WITH ID TECH FOR POINT-TO-POINT ENCRYPTION SOLUTIONS
Reduce risk and liability by preventing unencrypted card holder data from entering your environment.
IRVINE, California, July 2, 2013 — TrustCommerce, leading provider of secure payment solutions, is pleased to partner with device manufacturer ID TECH on our Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) offerings serving a variety of environments such as call center, retail, mail order, kiosk, mobile, and others.
“ID TECH is a wonderful partner of TrustCommerce. Their extensive line of encrypting payment devices allows us to provide our merchants with even greater flexibility and payment security,” said Rob Caulfield, Chief Executive Officer, TrustCommerce.
P2PE secures sensitive payment data in flight. Using an encrypting swipe or keypad device, data is protected at the point of entry. The encrypted payment data is passed to TrustCommerce for secure processing. By using encryption at the point of entry, these solutions prevent payment data from being compromised in the merchant environment or during transmission. Merchants can experience increased security while reducing risk and compliance overhead.
TrustCommerce offers an additional layer of security by not only encrypting at the point of sale, but also tokenizing for subsequent transactions and recurring payments. Tokenization secures payment data at rest by replacing the sensitive card holder data with a unique, randomly generated alphanumeric identifier, called a Billing ID, that resides on the merchant’s system and can be used for future transactions. There is no direct relationship between a credit card number and the associated token. Used in combination with encryption, tokenization offers a powerful method for reducing PCI scope, protecting cardholder data, and removing it from the merchant environment.
"The partnership between ID TECH and TrustCommerce has connected two organizations that value secure payment transactions. TrustCommerce is one of the pioneers in the encryption of card holder data and tokenization. A partnership between TrustCommerce and ID TECH equips merchants with industry leading payment security solutions. We look forward to continuing our long-standing partnership with TrustCommerce," said George Jiang, CTO, ID TECH.
P2PE with tokenization is easy to set up and use. TrustCommerce has successfully integrated the following ID TECH payment devices to provide P2PE with tokenization solutions to its partners: SecureMag, SecureKey M100 and M130, Sign&Pay, UniMag Pro and others.
Headquartered in Irvine, California, TrustCommerce provides secure payment processing for companies of all sizes—from start-ups processing 100 transactions a month, mid-size companies processing 25,000 transactions a month, to Fortune 500 businesses processing millions of transactions per month from multiple locations. We safeguard the merchant-customer relationship by providing speed, security, reliability and a commitment to earn and keep merchant’s valued trust. To learn more, visit www.TrustCommerce.com.
