Stay safe and secure. Reducing vulnerable links in the payment processing chain shifts responsibility for security to the acquirer or processor.
Point-to-point encryption (P2PE) reduces PCI DSS scope for merchants, ISVs and VARs, lowering the cost and effort needed to achieve and maintain compliance.
Open up new and lucrative revenue streams. ISVs and VARs can benefit from accessing industries with tight security requirements such as healthcare.
According to a 2015 study released by IBM and the Ponemon Institute, the total average cost to a company involved in a data breach is $3.79 million US dollars.
FlexPoint’s certified P2PE solution ensures card data is encrypted immediately at the time of insertion, swipe or tap on the merchant’s point-of-sale device, reducing the risk of unauthorized interception as the data is transmitted from the POS terminal to the payment processor. With increasing incidences of payment fraud and data breaches, it's imperative for businesses to have the highest level of cardholder data protection available to them.
FlexPoint uses TLS (Transport Layer Security), a robust security protocol and the successor of SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). TLS is known to be significantly more secure and fixes many vulnerabilities present with SSL. Using TLS ensures that transactions are as secure as possible.
When properly deployed, FlexPoint can remove an ISV’s POS solution from the scope of the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS), reducing the resources necessary to manage their payment security infrastructure.
Protecting cardholder data is an important part of running any successful business. We're making it easier for developers, integrators and dealers to offer a certified solution to their merchant clients.

FlexPoint provides secure integration and offers the payment technology that keeps business owners and their customers' transactions safe, while maximizing flexibility at the point of sale.
With P2PE, cardholder data is scrambled in a way that renders it unusable without a special decryption key located safely with the processor. The encrypted data is sent to a point of secure decryption outside the merchant’s environment.
Bullet-proof security further reduces exposure to fraud, saving time and money by significantly limiting compliance requirements for PCI DSS. Contact us to learn more.
