Gift card programs
Increase sales, improve cash flow, and project your brand with our affordable gift card program. Our offering enables multiple transaction types, flexible program controls, and cardholder and merchant support features to ensure you get the most out of your gift card program.
Data security programs
Take the complexity out of payment security with our advanced security suite. Cutting-edge security tools give you the confidence you need to safely accept payments and help reduce your fraud liability and breach vulnerability. Our extensive security suite includes:
- PCI Assist – Achieve and maintain PCI compliance with ease. Assistance with vulnerability scans, self-assessments, and checklists help you avoid the devastating loss of consumer trust and the financial impact associated with a data breach.
- Breach Assist - Limit your financial liability in the event of a data breach. Our breach protection service provides reimbursement for certain breach-related costs and includes funds for related hardware and software upgrades that may be required post-breach.
- Encryption - Add a solid layer of protection by encrypting data the moment it enters your system and throughout the entire transaction. Card data encryption removes card data from your network; reducing your risk of data compromise and helping you reduce the scope of your PCI compliance requirements.
- Tokenization - Protect card data at rest. Tokenization replaces card data with a substitute value—a token—that is useless to criminals, while enabling functions like recurring payments and tip adjustment.
