Auto-Star Implements Mercury E2E Encryption and Tokenization Technology to Increase Payment Processing Security and Reduce Retailers’ PCI Scope
MEDICINE HAT, AB and ORLANDO, FL – Auto-Star Compusystems Inc. is pleased to announce at RetailNOW 2014 the integration and successful implementation of the Star-Plus point of sale solution and Mercury Payment Systems’ E2EE (End-to-End encryption) and Tokenization technologies. Star-Plus Version 8.1 combined with Mercury’s E2E™ encryption and MToken™ makes it easier for merchants to achieve PCI compliance and maintain a more secure payment processing environment.
“Retailers across America need to be focused on reducing their PCI compliance scope,” said Ivan Long, Vice President of Operations at Auto-Star. “There is simply too much risk and cost right now to consider any other alternative. Our new E2E integration with Mercury is the best way for retailers to reduce their PCI scope and risk since it means that card data is never transmitted or stored on the point of sale system.”
With E2E™ encryption, cardholder data is encrypted the moment the card is swiped and throughout the transaction. MToken™ replaces card data with non-sensitive reference data or token for long-term storage at the point of sale. This significantly reduces the risk of a card data theft and security breaches for retailers, since cardholder data is not being processed, transmitted or stored in Star-Plus.
Attendees at RetailNOW 2014, can visit Auto-Star in booth #806 on August 5th and 6th, to learn more about E2E encryption and Auto-Star’s innovative software solutions.
