The Benefits of Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) Solutions

In today’s technologically advanced world, where personal information is virtually everywhere, fraud and data breaches are an all too common occurrence. Considering the financial impact a single incident can have, merchants must do everything they can to prevent it. So, how do you protect your business, brand, and cardholder data while reducing compliance measures? The answer: PCI P2PE.  

What is PCI P2PE?

When it comes to payment processing, P2PE is the highest standard of data encryption and the best option for merchants. Using a PCI P2PE device not only protects sensitive customer data, but it also tightens payment security, making compliance easier for your business.

Payment solutions encrypt data in many ways, but only PCI P2PE devices are reviewed, approved and certified by the PCI Security Standards Council.

How does it work?

With P2PE, cardholder data is secure. From the first time a customer uses their card to when it hits the point of sale, the payment data is encrypted. The encrypted data moves from the processor to the acquirer, then back to the point of sale as a secure token, ensuring cardholder data never touches your system.

The Major Benefits of PCI P2PE

Here’s how PCI P2PE makes processing payments easier for your business:

Maximize data security

Cardholder data is encrypted, so it's nearly impossible to steal or intercept it. 

Simplify PCI compliance efforts

Make annual, or semi-annual compliance audits easier for your business.

Minimize liability

Lower your fraud liability by following all instructions in the P2PE manual.

Reduce PCI questionnaire

Cut the PCI self-assessment questionnaire sections from 12 to 4 during an audit.

Decrease PCI control questions

Reduce control questions during PCI audits from 329 to 35.
