Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) provides a combination of secure devices, applications and processes that encrypt data from the point of interaction (for example, at the point of card swipe) until the data reaches the solution provider’s secure decryption environment.

EMV Payments

EMV stands for “Europay, MasterCard, Visa” and was developed in 1993 as the first card-present chip-based smart card. EMV protects against the misuse of lost or stolen cards through cryptography and the use of a PIN (which a magnetic strip does not, making credit card replication more difficult and costlier for thieves). Chips are embedded in the card and contain encrypted data that is accessed by the reader in the point of service terminal. A code or “cryptogram” is sent to the processor during the transaction to validate the card and cardholder

Virtual Terminal

The Virtual Terminal is the web based application for processing card present, card not present and recurring payments. The Virtual Terminal can be integrated with EMV devices and utilized point to point encryption for data security and further reduction of PCI scope.
