Cardholder data security is a chief concern among retailers of all sizes. Every merchant knows that protecting cardholder data is critical to ensuring the success of their business and brand. The economic impact from a data breach can be astronomical and potentially reach millions in financial losses, threatening even large merchants with the prospect of bankruptcy for a breach involving large crops of data.
You must consider all points of exposure when working to protect cardholder data. Still, the same approach might not work for all retail environments. Ingenico is an advocate of secure transaction processing, point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization solutions, and we want to help you find the solution that is right for your business.
When it comes to security solutions such as point-to-point encryption (P2PE) or Remote Key Injection (RKI), Ingenico Group’s methodology is to provide our retail and merchant customers with choices. Through our proprietary P2PE solutions - Ingenico On-Guard KME– as well as through our partnerships with the leading security providers in the industry, we bring options to customers in order to help them select the right technology for their individual needs.
Ingenico’s On-Guard P2P KME solution gives your business total point-to-point protection at no additional cost. From the moment a transaction is initiated at a secure POS terminal through its “in-flight” transmission to your acquirer for authorization, Ingenico’s On-Guard P2P KME (Point-to-Point Key for Message Encryption) provides comprehensive, proven protection.
Because On-Guard’s streamlined solution is embedded in our POS terminals, it needs no extra supporting hardware or overhead.
