Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) December 08, 2016 -- SkyWire, a Las Vegas based hospitality technology provider, announced today that it has completed the Freeway Commerce Connect (FCC) Certification enabling seamless connectivity to FreedomPay’s Commerce Platform with its point of sale software. FreedomPay’s Commerce Platform is certified for EMV, meaning that with the use of a supported payment device, hospitality merchants will be able to deploy a cost effective PCI-validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) payment solution with tokenization that accepts chip card and mobile wallet payments. FreedomPay’s platform delivers three layers of security making it increasingly more difficult for customers and merchants alike to be breached.
With security breaches occurring at every step of the credit card transaction process, encryption at the payment terminal level is vital. SkyWire POS provides customers the ultimate reassurance and protection against fraud as cardholder information is never stored on the application. Additionally, with the FreedomPay integration, sensitive cardholder data is completely encrypted and replaced with surrogate values throughout the approval process, virtually eliminating the risk of having a customer’s credit card information finding its way into the wrong hands.
“FreedomPay’s Commerce Platform provides the industry’s highest level of payment security with PCI-validated P2PE, tokenization and EMV support. Our validated P2PE solution significantly reduces the scope of PCI compliance for merchants and eliminates the costs and risks associated with data breaches,” said Christopher Kronenthal, the Chief Technology Officer at FreedomPay. “Our integration with SkyWire reinforces our position as the premier provider of commerce solutions for the hospitality industry and we are excited to help their customers deploy a PCI validated solution that will truly secure cardholder information.”
FreedomPay’s Commerce Platform offers merchants a validated solution that adheres to the rigorous P2PE certification requirements established by the PCI Security Standards Council. SkyWire Chief Operating Officer Dennis Montellano says, “We are excited to be able to offer our customers a choice when it comes to protecting their credit card data. Offering integration with FreedomPay allows our clients to make their own choices regarding their security needs and protecting their company’s interests.”
