PAYware Mobile Security Features
By Emily Shap
Protecting customer’s sensitive cardholder data is of paramount concern to merchants today. Recent data breeches have made everyone handling credit card information start to question their own security measures. Mobile merchants looking at accepting credit cards through their iPhone equipped with the PAYware mobile application can rest assured. VeriFone states that their PAYware application will protect cardholder data and lower liability of risk from fraud. Here are PAYware mobile security features.
Card Encryption Sleeve
PAYware mobile card encryption sleeve provides, “end-to-end” security. Security begins the moment the credit or debit card is swiped into the reader. Cardholder data is instantly encrypted preventing sensitive information from ever entering the iPhone, or being intercepted in transit. Credit card data remains secure through the whole transaction process.
No Data Storage
PAYware mobile security conforms to the same stringent encryption protection used in ATM’s and retail point-of-sale devices. This ensures that sensitive data is never stored on the iPhone, where it could possibly be stolen. Customer’s account information is truncated on all data fields and reports.
PAYware mobile application is PA DSS 1.2 approved by the PCI SSC (Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council). All VeriFone products are 3rd party tested and validated against PCI SSC’s strict regulations.
Protecting cardholder’s sensitive data in the mobile credit card processing arena is easy with the PCI compliant PAYware mobile application and card encryption sleeve. Credit and debit card information is protected from the moment the card is swiped, all the way to the processor, and back. Important data is never stored on the iPhone, where it could be compromised, lowering the liability of risk from fraud.
