How it works

There is a common misconception that EMV is the armored car of payment security, when it’s more like the counterfeit pens used to authenticate paper currency.  Although EMV is an important layer of security to help protect against card-present fraud, it requires encryption and tokenization to offer the proper defense against card fraud and data breaches.
