"We are responding to the market's growing demand for a suite of security options to eliminate exposure and risk throughout the payments value chain."
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) May 11, 2011
TGate Payments today announced a series of enhancements to its SecureLINKsm solution suite. As an SecureLINK protects card holder data from the point of capture all the way through storage and token management. It is a complete secure solution for merchants, ISVs, and processors who are seeking to close the security gaps that begin at the customer's premise.
SecureLINK's new Card Based Tokenization service is a secure technology where card based tokens are generated for each card number as a secondary PAN in place of the primary PAN. In this approach, the same token is generated every time for that card number in a one-way encrypted T-Gate proprietary algorithm, preserving the length, bin range, and last four digits of the primary PAN.
SecureLINK Card Based Tokenization and Decryption services are now available in a standalone environment for Service Providers to leverage in conjunction with their services. Since it eliminates localized handling and storage of actual card holder data, SecureLINK reduces the scope for PCI PA-DSS compliance for payment applications while offering merchants peace of mind and a new level of insight into the purchasing decisions of their customers.
"These enhancements offer ISVs, service providers and merchants a new range of advanced security technologies and cost savings," explains Tracy Metzger, TGate's president. "In offering SecureLINK as a standalone service, we are responding to the market's growing demand for a suite of security options to eliminate exposure and risk throughout the payments value chain."
