PXP Solutions has received Point 2 Point Encryption (P2PE) accreditation from the Payments Card Industry Standards Council for its ANYpay P2PE solution.
PXP has been successfully providing secure card processing to customers globally for 30 years and is proud to offer the added benefits that P2PE accreditation brings.
PXP operate P2PE as a managed service whereby customer card data is encrypted directly on the PIN entry device (usually the PIN pad). Each device has a secure encryption key within it which is managed via the PXP secure datacentre and deployed via remote key injection. The key encrypts data on the device before sending it to PXP’s systems where it remains encrypted until reaching the secure processing environment. Merchants systems then receive an encrypted token as a substitute for the customer data. This way, the point-of-sale terminals and systems never see any sensitive data in the clear, minimising the impact of a data security compromise. It sits alongside the PXP tokenisation service, which also helps protect sensitive data.
Mike Day, CEO, PXP commented: ‘We are extremely proud of this accreditation. It further cements PXP’s commitment to offer merchants the highest level of security with our leading omni-channel payment solutions.’
