Security and Encryption Solutions

Ingenico works to find the right security solutions for your business.

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.

There are several threat vectors with implications to cardholder data. For example, sometimes data can be compromised while it is “in flight,” or being transmitted for processing. It is vital to protect data when it is vulnerable in this way. Without strong encryption to secure data transmission, a merchant could be exposing critical information that, if hacked, could result in the ultimate nightmare scenario described above.

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’s methodology is to provide our retail and merchant customers with choices. Through our proprietary P2PE solutions – Ingenico On-Guard (for customers in the U.S.) or Ingenico On-Guard KME (for customers in Canada) – 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.

If you are looking for a P2PE solution without key injection, we invite you consider our joint security offerings between Voltage Security, Inc. or First Data TransArmor. Or, if your business needs call for a P2PE with key injection, we invite you to choose from our own Ingenico On-Guard Element Payment Services.

If you are interested in Remote Key Injection (RKI) options, we offer those as well. For a low volume solution, we host our own application (TGKIT), where a single key set can be created and remotely accessed through our Terminal Management System. If you need a high volume solution, you can choose the FutureX RKMS system in either its online mode or offline. We can arrange to host the FutureX solution should you prefer that route.
