Transaction Network Services Unveils New Suite of Point-To-Point Encryption Solutions to Help Merchants Protect Sensitive Cardholder Data
Sep 16 14
Transaction Network Services has unveiled a new suite of point-to-point encryption solutions to help merchants protect sensitive cardholder data. TNS' Managed POS Encryption includes support for the VeriShield Protect end-to-end encryption solution from VeriFone and Trustwave's hardware-agnostic point-to-point encryption. Point-to-point encryption technology, combined with tokenization, has garnered a lot of attention in recent months in the wake of a number of high profile data breach cases. To help combat these attacks and protect merchants against this danger, TNS' diverse portfolio has been designed to allow customers to eliminate the transmission of 'clear' cardholder data from the merchant environment. Offering support for a range of popular VeriFone terminals as well as the device neutral option with Trustwave, TNS' solutions protect data from the point-of-sale terminal through to the payment acquirer or processor. Merchants can benefit from limited up-front capital expense and can also eliminate the need to commit to any ongoing personnel, management or maintenance resources. For both solutions TNS uses multiple high-capacity decryption gateways located within geographically diverse data centers, supported by dynamic alternate routing capabilities, to process transactions securely and efficiently. TNS is offering merchants the opportunity to diversify their risk by using a third party provider for encryption services, while at the same time giving acquirers the opportunity to provide this capacity to their customer base.
