Transaction Network Services and Verifone Form New Agreement to Help Merchants Enhance Payment Data Security
Jul 7 15
A new agreement between Transaction Network Services (TNS) and Verifone has been established to help merchants enhance payment data security with streamlined, expedient point-to-point encryption (P2PE) technology deployment. The two companies, which began working together more than six years ago, are integrating their complementary payment security solutions to provide complete end-to-end protection for in-store payment transactions. Managed POS Encryption from TNS and Verifone’s end-to-end encryption solution, VeriShield Protect, will be combined into a single interface, enabling merchants to deploy P2PE through a faster, more efficient process. VeriShield Protect from Verifone enhances TNS’ Managed POS Encryption solution by encrypting cardholder information from the moment it is captured at the terminal and keeping it encrypted until it is securely accessed behind TNS’ firewall. Used by more than 250 of the top merchants and nine of the top 10 payment processors in the US, VeriShield Protect is the most widely adopted end-to-end encryption solution in the US. VeriShield Protect encrypted more than 1.5 billion transactions in 2014 and, so far, has already encrypted more than 1.2 billion transactions this year. Managed POS Encryption and VeriShield Protect can be reinforced with tokenization to further strengthen the merchant payments infrastructure. Tokenization replaces cardholder data in the merchant environment with a token that can be regularly submitted to TNS when payments are due. TNS stores the cardholder information on behalf of the merchant within its secure, PCI-compliant environment. TNS’ tokenization solution is ideally suited for merchants that take recurring payments or need to store cardholder data for chargeback, or reversal and marketing analytics. It is a robust solution that is suitable for card present and card-not-present payments.
