Infor Announces New Partnership with Merchant Link
Jul 8 14
Infor has announced a new partnership with Merchant Link to offer hoteliers added security through tokenization and point-to-point encryption, or P2PE, for credit card swipes on the HMS Mobile Check in application. Through this integration, Infor Hospitality Management System (HMS) customers are expected to have more confidence that their systems are protected and guest data is safe from potential security threats and data breaches. Starting at the point of sale, the Merchant Link infrastructure was designed so that Infor HMS never sees or stores sensitive credit card information. Cardholder data is captured and replaced with tokens that safely live inside the Infor HMS system, CRM records, etc. In all subsequent communications, the credit card is referenced using the token. This helps ensure that the primary account number is never exposed in the system. By removing Cardholder data from the hotelier's system and storing it in a secure, hosted vault, the data is able to reside away from the business and from hackers. This should reduce the risk of a breach and directly address the third requirement in the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, "Protect Stored Data".
iTesso Enhances Data Security with Merchant Link Interface
Dec 3 13
iTesso announced a new interface between the iTesso Enterprise Lodging System and Merchant Link. By teaming with Merchant Link, the iTesso solution is not subject to Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements, but actually exceeds the standard by completely eliminating the storage of cardholder data in the iTesso database. With the new interface, Merchant Link's secure Payment Gateway, TransactionVault and TransactionShield products deliver robust point-to-point encryption and strong tokenization. By deploying encrypting devices on premise, credit card information is first sent to Merchant Link for tokenization. The token is then sent to iTesso, where it is saved on the reservation. This way, hotels using the iTesso Enterprise Lodging System never see sensitive credit card data in their user interface or database. The iTesso Enterprise Lodging System (ELS) is uniquely suitable for hotel groups and branded chains looking for technology to power their brand. Built from the ground up to take full advantage of what the cloud has to offer, iTesso ELS provides High Availability High Performance (HA HP) and virtually unlimited scalability to the hospitality industry.
