Verifone’s end-to-end encryption and tokenization solution has been vetted against PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requirements. VeriShield Total Protect protects merchants, payment providers and consumers alike.
Coalfire Systems, a top Payment Card Industry Qualified Security Assessor (PCI QSA), has completed an evaluation of Verifone’s end-to-end encryption and tokenization solution against PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) requirements.
Coalfire says VeriShield Total Protect, secured by RSA, can nearly eliminate the current risk of payment card data compromise within a merchant’s retail environment and can dramatically reduce how many PCI DSS requirements need to be validated when properly deployed.
VeriShield Total Protect encrypts cardholder information from the moment it is captured at the terminal until it is securely accessed behind a processor’s firewall. It is used by more than 250 of the top merchants and nine of the top 10 payment processors in the U.S., and it is the most-widely adopted payment data encryption solution in the U.S.
VeriShield Total Protect Overview:
• Reduces the PCI DSS controls that merchants are responsible for validating in their retail and corporate environments
• Works with the widest range of payment technologies, including mag-stripe, contactless, NFC and EMV
• Easily integrates with retail systems and applications with little or no disruption and with minimal impact on point of sale (POS) systems
• Uses proven, random-number tokenization, allowing retailers to store substituted tokens, rather than actual card data, for safer analytics, chargeback processing, loss prevention and more.
Coalfire utilized industry best practices in its VeriShield Total Protect assessment and testing methodologies. Technical lab testing was conducted by Coalfire in both of its labs located in Louisville, Colo., and at Verifone’s labs in San Diego, Calif., and included complete POS installation, integration, transaction testing, device assessment, encryption evaluation and forensic analysis.
