Merchant Link to Introduce CNP Data Security Solution

April 17, 2012

Merchant Link, a provider of payment gateway and data security solutions, says it is developing an e-commerce solution for merchants to process payments securely in card-not-present environments. The Silver Springs, Md.-based company says it will offer a hosted solution that will enable a secure process to route sensitive cardholder data directly from the checkout page to the Merchant Link gateway while preserving the look and feel of the merchant Website and an encrypted solution that will encrypt sensitive data at the moment of capture and prevent such data from being available to the e-commerce application or merchant.

Merchant Link says both options will significantly improve data security while reducing PCI scope and costs by removing cardholder data from the merchant’s environment. The company expects the new solution to be available by the end of this year.
