Chantilly, VA, December 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- 3Delta Systems, Inc. (3DSI), a leader in online credit card payment and business-to-business (B2B) data tokenization solutions, announced today that Ohio-based industrial software vendor Tribute Inc. will integrate 3DSI's CardVault tokenization service into its enterprise software applications. As a result, Tribute's customers will be able to reduce their cost and scope of complying with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) security requirements and better protect their credit card data from a possible breach. The company provides enterprise-wide software to distributors and fabricators in the fluid power, fluid handling, hose, sealing, belting, automation, motion control and related industries at more than 600 locations throughout North America.
Under the agreement, CardVault will be embedded into Tribute's Windows-based TrulinX distribution software and its Unix-based Tribute software systems. With CardVault, Tribute's customers will be able to exchange real credit card numbers with reference values called tokens, a process that renders card data useless to criminals in the event of a breach. CardVault will also store Tribute customers' sensitive credit card and payment data off-site at 3DSI's secure, PCI-certified processing centers.
Tribute's customers have been using 3Delta Systems' EC-Linx real-time, Level-3 payment processing interface since 2005 to capture and pass through detailed, invoice-like purchase information with their credit card transactions. Merchants who include Level-3 data, ranging from unit price to item description when processing B2B purchase card transactions, can realize significant card interchange fee savings.
"CardVault was the clear choice for delivering world-class card security to our industrial distributors and complements 3Delta Systems' EC-Linx capabilities beautifully," said Susie Hopper, vice president at Tribute Inc. "3DSI provides the most sophisticated tokenization and payment processing solutions on the market today, coupled with state-of-the-art 'Software as a Service' technologies, flexible network platform, industry expertise and extensive customer support."
"Enterprises that share business-critical credit card data across applications and face PCI compliance mandates often find that outsourcing payment acceptance, storage and tokenization to 3Delta Systems significantly decreases their customers' PCI audit scope while protecting sensitive information from cybercriminals," said Aaron Bills, chief operating officer and founder of 3Delta Systems.
In addition to secure card data storage, CardVault also features real-time and file-based Level-3 transaction processing with every major U.S. card processor. Real-time transactions support e-commerce and customer service systems in which a customer waits for their card to be authorized, while file-based processing supports invoicing systems and circumstances where real-time authorization is not critical.
3Delta Systems' suite of services and technologies meet the most rigorous PCI DSS requirements for safeguarding cardholder data against fraud and data security breaches. The PCI DSS standards are the payment industry's foremost benchmark for cardholder account security. 3Delta Systems has maintained third-party PCI DSS certification since 2004 and is a participating organization in the PCI Security Standards Council.
