Next generation MSI products increase security by using TransactionVault® and TransactionShield®

Merchant Link, a leading provider of payment gateway and data security solutions, is pleased to announce that MSI’s next generation products and solutions are now even more secure with the integration of Merchant Link’s tokenization product, TransactionVault and Point-to-Point solution TransactionShield to MSI CloudPM.

“We value the experience Merchant Link brings to the relationship with regards to the implementation of multi-layered lodging data security solutions,” shared Rick Munson, President & CEO, MSI. “The company’s comprehensive security products provide the flexibility to protect both our premise based and cloud based products.”

MSI Solutions has been rolling out MSI CloudPM with Merchant Link’s TransactionVault and TransactionShield solutions, along with the BizPortalTM reporting solution for corporate accounting and on-property financial professionals. TransactionVault removes guest credit card data from hoteliers’ systems and stores it in a secure, hosted “vault” – away from the business and safe from hackers. TransactionShield encrypts data at the point of interaction and protects it as it travels through the hotel’s IT environment.

“Merchant Link is delighted to advance our relationship with MSI Solutions on this security initiative. Our security solutions provide an exceptional opportunity for MSI’s clients to enhance their payment card security capabilities,” stated Laura Kirby-Meck, EVP Sales & Marketing, Merchant Link.
