Payment and Security are Priority #1
In addition, payment and security are top of mind issues with every retailer and they are also top of mind at Aptos. We employ proven end-to-end encryption (E2EE) to ensure that your cardholders data is never directly identified at any point during its journey to and from the bank. With our PA-DSS certified Aptos Secure Data Manager (SDM), or FiPay from our partner AJB, data is fully encrypted on the PIN pad (using VeriFone VeriShield) with bank-owned keys. It is then securely communicated to the point of sale, transmitted directly to the bank for authorization, and re-encrypted before being returned to your POS.
Retailing in a Zero-Strike World: Learn more about Payment and Security
Aptos Secure Data Manager is a cornerstone application that consolidates payment cardholder data and manages it in a secure manner. ESDM is a PA-DSS certified solution that supports and simplifies your PCI-DSS audit. Further streamline security through tokenization using Secure Data Manager. When an application using Secure Data Manager receives sensitive data such as cardholder data, it generates a token to represent this information. This token is then passed on to the application, limiting the exposure of the sensitive data itself. Tokenization helps to reduce the costs, resources, and risks associated with storing sensitive data. Payment authorization and settlement service is responsible for administering the sensitive data for authorization and settlement processing with the provider. This is executed by decrypting the necessary information in memory and formatting it appropriately for the specified provider.
