Advanced Risk Tools for PCI Compliance
When you’re a merchant who accepts credit cards and debit cards for business, it’s your responsibility to make sure your customers and your business are protected by complying with PCI DSS standards. PCI compliance isn’t just a precaution – it’s a requirement. If data is compromised and your business isn’t secure, you could face law suits and hefty fines, in addition to possibly losing your business. BluePay’s full suite of credit card processing products complies with PCI standards, and we offer advanced risk tools that protect your business even further.
What Is Tokenization for PCI Compliance?
One of the most common PCI violations is storing card holder’s credit card information, increasing the risk of your database getting hacked and sensitive credit card data stolen. Tokenization helps merchants reduce their PCI scope by using “tokens” otherwise useless to thieves. With tokenization, real credit card numbers never get stored.
What Is E2EE for PCI Compliance?
E2EE stands for End-to-End Encryption, which protects credit card data during the transaction process. Because many thieves try to steal data once a credit card is swiped and the data is in transit, E2EE encrypts the data before the transaction to keep sensitive information secure from point of swipe to authorization – and every point in between.
What Is a Hosted Form for PCI Compliance?
BluePay’s secure hosted payment form is ideal for e-commerce merchants and non-profit organizations that want to add a page on their site for customers and donors to enter their credit card information securely. The form is designed to match the look and feel of the website, but is hosted on BluePay’s secure servers to keep data safe from risk.
What Is AVS for PCI Compliance?
AVS stands for Address Verification System, a security method that helps merchants verify the card holder by asking for customers’ address or ZIP code at the point of purchase. AVS helps ensure the merchant is not accepting a stolen credit card, whether during card-present or online transactions.
What Is CVV2/CVC for PCI Compliance?
The CVV2 or CVC refers to the credit card security code, which is a three- or four-digit number located on either the front or back of the card, depending on the credit card. Card holders are prompted for the code during card-not-present sales, such as online or over the phone, to verify the customer is in fact the true card holder and not making purchases using stolen data.
At BluePay, we are committed to providing payment processing solutions that help you achieve PCI compliance and protect your business.
