Security and PCI Compliance

Payments Security Solutions

Elavon helps ensure your payments data is secure. Our payments security solutions can help defend your sensitive card payment information with triple layers – EMV, encryption and tokenization – that authenticate cardholder identity and make data virtually useless to fraudsters. And if you want to reduce time spent on Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance, we’ll assist with that too.

Secure Payments Data Protected with Elavon's Security and PCI Compliance

Protect cardholder data

Verifying that your customer is the actual cardholder is a critical first step in fraud mitigation. Elavon was among the first processors to launch EMV (chip) card authentication when it was introduced in 2015, and this card-present technique remains an essential part of our secure approach to payments.

Credit Card Chip Supported by Elavon's Chip Card Acceptance

Counterfeit prevention from the start

According to a 2018 Visa report, U.S. merchants who accept chip cards saw a 75% reduction in counterfeit fraud.2 We support chip card acceptance, your first layer of security, so you can authenticate cards at the point-of-sale and reduce chargebacks.

Elavon's Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) Protecting Payments Data

In-transit protection

Protect card data as it moves across your business to our secure data center. Our point-to-point encryption (P2PE) technology masks the data to minimize exposure in the event of a breach.

Encryption and tokenization image

Nothing to find, nothing to steal.

Our payments security solutions include encryption and tokenization to protect card data both “in transit” and “at rest.” Our point-of-sale terminals feature hardware-based, tamper resistant security modules. When a payment card is swiped or inserted (dipped), encryption protects the card data as it travels across various systems and networks until it is decrypted at our secure data center. Tokenization replaces cardholder data with a unique token ID – that removes it from the processing environment – for use in subsequent transactions. Sensitive information is inaccessible should a breach occur.
