Global Payments Inc. Launches EdgeShield

Global Payments Inc. announced the launch of EdgeShield, an advanced security services bundle designed to protect credit card data, prevent counterfeit fraud and enhance payment processing security. EdgeShield, through a unique collection of complementary solutions, delivers a more secure payments platform while preparing point-of-sale developers and merchants for the upcoming EMV mandates. Delivered through the OpenEdge integrated payments division of Global Payments, EdgeShield is a collection of security-related components designed to eliminate existing vulnerabilities within the payments chain. When integrated into systems that accept payments, the bundle is intended to protect credit card data while at rest and in transit. EdgeShield includes: EMV. This fraud-reduction technology seeks to protect card issuers, merchants and consumers from losses due to the use of counterfeit and stolen payment cards at the point-of-sale. EMV Smart Cards are embedded with a chip that interacts with a merchant’s point-of-sale device, helping to ensure the card is valid and belongs to the user. This chip technology is virtually impossible to duplicate. The technology also assists in insulating developers from complex device driving and card brand certifications. P2P Encryption. OpenEdge’s proprietary encryption is designed to render cardholder data virtually unreadable, encrypted at the device. Merchants are unable to view card numbers after the swipe or hand-key. Token Vault. Cardholder data is replaced by digital ‘tokens’ based on this technology. Sensitive data is stored in the more secure OpenEdge vault rather than in the merchant environment. PCI 3.0. Payment applications are rendered out-of-scope with EdgeShield, eliminating cumbersome PCI validation requirements.
