Our clients at Alfatek have very strict data transmission standards, which is why we chose to partner with Merchant Link. They offer the highest level of payment data security that even exceeds PCI requirements that most reputable corporation’s demand.

Merchant Link, a leading payment gateway offering cloud-based cardholder data security solutions, today announced that it has completed integration with Alfatek’s parking garage security management gate systems. Alfatek customers now have access to both, tokenization of credit card data and Point-to-Point Encryption [P2PE] through Merchant Link’s suite of security products.

“Our clients at Alfatek have very strict data transmission standards, which is why we chose to partner with Merchant Link. They offer the highest level of payment data security that even exceeds PCI requirements that most reputable corporation’s demand” said Enrique Alfaro, President of Alfatek.

TransactionVault® is a proven, cost-effective tokenization solution that removes cardholder data from a merchant’s system and stores it in a secure, hosted “vault” – away from the business and safe from hackers. TransactionShield® encrypts cardholder data using industry-recognized standards and methods, rendering data unreadable and unusable to cyber criminals. It utilizes cloud-based decryption, which prevents decrypted data from entering in your environment, and it integrates with any encrypting device, offering you flexibility in your hardware solutions.

Properly deployed, implementation of these solutions can help remove merchant parking garage security management gate systems from the scope of PCI DSS, easing compliance efforts and cost. In addition, Merchant Link’s processor-neutral gateway offers the flexibility to switch amongst processors quickly and efficiently, keeping merchants in control of their payment partners and rates.

“Alfatek’s desire to provide security of payments through their systems, to their customers, is commendable. With all of the breaches we hear in today’s news, it is refreshing to see an integrated solution provider share in the concern for their client’s on-going security. Alfatek was easy to work with and certify to. We look forward to our relationship” shared Laura Meck, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Merchant Link.

The integration and certification is complete and the first pilot site, Delta Montreal Hotel, will go live October 2014.
