Years in Business
The Shift4 gateway offers the highest level of transaction and financial data security, including certified compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). We have powerful tools in place to ensure that our merchant’s transaction processing systems do not store or process sensitive payment card data, providing the highest level of data security available.
Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE)
Shift4’s PCI-validated P2PE solution prevents cardholder data from entering your customers’ payment environment – limiting PCI scope and protecting you and your merchants from breaches. Many companies claim Point-to-Point Encryption but few are PCI validated and that makes the whole difference.
Shift4 tokenization replaces sensitive cardholder data with a random alphanumeric value, delivering the best solution for merchants who want to protect their sensitive data. Shift4 actually invented tokenization in 2005 and has processed billions of tokenized transactions since then.
Shift4 has had 100% system uptime since 2008 with fully redundant, geographically diverse data centers (hot, hot) powering our robust processing infrastructure. From hardware devices and data centers to processor connections and Internet Service Providers, everything is redundant – even down to the cooling systems that regulate the data centers. There is no single point of failure in our entire infrastructure.
Our gateway offers a complete enterprise solution, including credit, PIN debit, gift cards, signature capture, check verification, and EMV, all in one simple-to-use tool.
