TransArmorSM Solution

Protect your customers’ valuable payment card data and reduce your liability with a comprehensive security solution that enhances your peace of mind.

The Challenge

Small businesses are prime targets for sophisticated, relentless cybercriminals. A Visa analysis has found that small merchants accounted for more than 80 percent of the data security breaches. And every compromised record can cost your business more than $200, exposing you to liability for chargebacks, legal issues and fines from banks or regulators — and robbing you of your customers’ trust.

The challenge is to find an easy-to-implement and cost-effective solution that improves security at every transaction stage—for you and your customers—while it provides the added benefit of simplifying your compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The Solution

The Same Level of Security as the “Big Guys”—without paying the “Big Guy” price.

The TransArmor Solution, developed in partnership with RSA, a global leader in information security, is an easy-to-implement, service-based solution that encrypts sensitive cardholder data and then removes it completely from your environment, protecting your customers’ sensitive information and limiting your liability.

The solution protects vulnerable data in transit with state-of-the-art encryption and removes the need for you to store card data by replacing it with a randomly generated number, called a token, which can be used for other business processes such as returns, chargebacks, recurring payments, sales reports, analytics or marketing programs. However, the token cannot be used by an unauthorized party to conduct a fraudulent transaction.

Benefits to Your Business

  • Protect your customers’ sensitive data from theft and protect your business from direct losses, damage to your reputation and lost customer loyalty
  • Reduce the risk and worry of storing cardholder data while using the token number to manage chargebacks, returns, recurring payments, sales and marketing reports, etc. (all terminals automatically store data until batching out)
  • A limited warranty protects your business from the risks of financial liability and certain fines associated with a data breach
  • An easy-to-implement, hands-off service-based solution that is adaptable to the changing security environment—so you can focus on running your business
