Evaluating End-to-End Encryption: Decrypting Retail Card Data Security
Getting a driver's license doesn't mean one can't be sideswiped or get a speeding ticket. Similarly, being assessed as compliant with the PCI Data Security Standard one day doesn't necessarily insulate one from a data breach in the future. No retailer wants to be vulnerable to a security breach. But complying with security requirements imposed by card brands can be confusing and potentially costly. Because these requirements are constantly evolving, many retailers are hesitant to invest now at the risk that future mandates will require yet another retooling. An end-to-end solution using the format preserving encryption technology optimized in VeriShield Protect meets today's challenges and provides the flexibility to adapt without impacting the POS infrastructure.
