ProtectPay is a secure data repository
ProPay, a provider of merchant payment solutions, has announced the integration of its ProtectPay services with MicroSecure Card Reader.
The company has said that ProtectPay is a secure data repository where merchants and service providers can store sensitive customer payment information and receive back a unique customer identification number which they use to access the payment information for repeat billing or ongoing business transactions. It is fully compliant with PCI DSS security standards.
ProPay’s MicroSecure Card Reader encrypts cardholder information at swipe, stores the data if needed and/or transmits the data for processing when connected to an internet-enabled personal computer. The integration of these two offerings gives merchants a secure service that provides the ability to securely process and then store with ProPay, any payment card swiped through the Card Reader for repeat or future billing, added ProPay.
Greg Pesci, executive vice president of business strategy at ProPay, said: Business owners and merchants want to focus their time and resources on building their core businesses, not on PCI compliance and payment data security issues. With ProPay these merchants can finally reduce or even eliminate the potential of a hack or breach of customer payment data simply because the data is no longer in their systems.
