LinkPoint Choose Ingrian Networks DataSecure

Wednesday 16 June 2004 07:48 CET | News

LinkPoint, a First Data Merchant Services business unit, has selected Ingrian DataSecure Platforms as an additional layer of security for the privacy and protection of their customers credit card data. With Ingrian, LinkPoint adds failsafe redundancies and sophisticated cryptography management to ensure that critical customer data remains protected at every point of potential breach -- whether that data is in storage, in transit, or being used by a database or application. Companies that conduct credit card transactions, or in any way store or manage credit card information, must thwart increasingly sophisticated theft attempts. In addition to the potentially devastating consequences that such thefts pose, companies must also comply with more stringent security policies set forth by credit card issuers -- like Visas Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) -- and adhere to legislation like Californias Database Security Breach Notification Act, SB 1386. LinkPoints implementation of Ingrians solution is a clear indicator of the value that they place on meeting and exceeding industry standards for securing customer data. Their refined, real-time system is widely recognized by the electronic payments community as one of the most effective in use on the Internet today. Given the volume of data they process daily, LinkPoint continues to take every step necessary to ensure total security. They see their implementation of the Ingrian solution as the logical next step in their ongoing efforts to achieve the highest level of security. Ingrian provides capabilities for encrypting, integrity checking, fingerprinting, and digitally signing sensitive data -- and protecting it at all times, throughout the enterprise. DataSecure secures information in all these phases: -- Data in storage -- while it sits at rest in storage devices, whether they are directly attached to systems or in a SAN/NAS environment. -- Data in transit -- while information is moving between servers, databases, and storage devices. -- Data in use -- while it is being accessed or processed by applications and databases. All communication between servers and Ingrian platforms takes place over secure SSL connections and all cryptographic keys are stored securely and centrally on the DataSecure platform. As a result, sensitive data is never readable by unauthorized users, thus minimizing the risk of information theft from internal or external attacks.
