NCR Retail Applications
Secure Pay is NCR’s credit card processing application that has your back covered with multiple layers of security. All credit card data is encrypted throughout the process creating peace of mind for you and your customers. With NCR Secure Pay credit card payments are processed in a PCI-DSS compliant manner outside of your local system through the NCR Secure Pay host. Point-to-point encryption is also used to reduce the likelihood of a security breech when the data is being transmitted to the host server. Rather than holding card data locally in your store a token version of the credit card information is held locally. This allows you to access the transactions while keeping all credit card information encrypted and secure.
