Minimise the risk and liability to your business from storing sensitive online card payment details with Wirecard’s Payment Vault and Tokenisation Solution.

The risks, costs and challenges associated with storing credit card data within your environment are well known. Online credit card data encryption was cited as the single greatest challenge merchants face when achieving PCI Compliance.

The problem is that credit card details need to be stored for easy-payment options like 1Click Payments, Batch Payments and Recurring Payments.

“Hackers can’t take what you don’t have.”

Fortunately, Wirecard’s Payment Vault and Tokenisation Solution takes the risk out of recurring payments and 1Click payments for merchants by replacing cardholder details with a dynamically generated token. This token can then be re-used for future credit card payments without the need to store sensitive cardholder details, making it the best solution out there.

Rather than encrypting sensitive data, it is better to keep it out of the database and replace the credit card information with a random token that then links back to a Wirecard’s database, which will be used for transaction processing. If your servers were to be compromised you are safe, because the tokens can only be used with your payment gateway and merchant account.

The benefits of tokenisation are far reaching, including the reduction of PCI Compliance scope and increased security as no sensitive card data is present in a merchant environment – even in the case of a breach.
