The Customer Vault was designed specifically for businesses of any size to address security concerns about handling customer payment information. Visa and MasterCard have instituted the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard to protect cardholder data–wherever it resides–ensuring that members, merchants, and service providers maintain the highest information security standard.
These associations have also deemed that merchants will be held liable for any breach of cardholder data. This has become a major concern for merchants who may handle credit card or electronic check payments, but are looking to avoid the tremendous costs and resources involved in becoming PCI compliant.
The Customer Vault allows merchants to transmit their payment information through a Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) connection for storage in our level 1 PCI certified facilities. Once the customer information has been securely transmitted to the Customer Vault, the merchant can then initiate transactions remotely without having to access cardholder information directly. This process is accomplished without the merchant storing the customer’s payment information in their local database or payment application.
Furthermore, using the Network Merchants Browser Redirect Method in conjunction with the Customer Vault allows merchants to process transactions without transmitting any payment information through their web application. This unique approach provides best of class application flexibility without any PCI compliance concerns. The Network Merchants Redirect API (Advanced Programmers Interface) is available by request of the project manager.
