How secure is Web-Merchant?

Security is the most significant concern for shopper and retailer


All our accredited banks use state of the art security tools and techniques, both proprietary and unique, to ensure that you and your shopper are protected against what is nowadays a virtually nonexistent risk. The systems also have inbuilt system redundancy and fault tolerance, to provide you with a virtually uninterrupted service 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The systems have evolved over many years and gained full bank approval.



The Web-Merchant payment systems that we provide all use a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data.

Furthermore, public web servers are certified by Thawte, a public Certificate Authority, ensuring that both the shopper and retailer can have confidence that nobody can impersonate the banking networks to obtain confidential information.

 


Inbuilt system redundancy and fault tolerance, to provide you with an uninterrupted service


The payment systems that we provide all use a combination of both established and innovative techniques to ensure the security and integrity of all sensitive data. In reality an online transaction is probably more secure than a card transaction in a shop as the information transmitted online is highly encrypted using complicated logarithm combinations.



If the shopper keys in their card details are they encrypted?

Using industry standard SSL and Thawte unique encryption systems, this is exactly the case. When the shopper fills in the payment form and clicks the submit button, their details are not sent straight away. A a secure link is set up between the shopper's browser and the payment system and an encryption code is requested and received, which then wraps the order and transaction details before leaving the shoppers premises. read more >>>

If a web browser does not display the padlock icon on the payment page, do not proceed with the transaction and contact the online store immediately.


Transaction Encryption

No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to your servers from us are secure and tamper-proof via SSL. The transfer of the purchase details from the retailers site to the secure banking networks are encapsulated using their own encrypted and digitally-signed protocol. This uses a combination of standard methods such as PGP, RSA and MD5 to ensure that the information passed is secure and tamper-proof.

Current encryption technology completely eliminates credit card fraud on the Internet. There are no cases of Web-Merchant security EVER being breached.


What level of encryption do you have?

Thawte 2048 bit encryption systems. At the browser 128 Bit SSL is used and Information passed between your computer and the secure payment pages cannot be intercepted by any third party.


Data Storage

Data storage on our systems, and the communication between the merchant accounts that we provide and the worldwide banking networks, is regularly audited by the banking authorities to ensure a secure transaction environment. Once on our systems, all sensitive data is secured using the same internationally recognised 256-bit encryption standards. We also ensure that we stay up-to-date with the latest versions of any third-party code we use, and continually review our own proprietary code. We are also fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).


Can anybody FTP to the secure server?

No, never! All FTP (or any kind of upload/download functionality) is strictly prohibited on any of the secure servers used during a transaction and at any other time.
