No cardholder data is entered or stored in the merchant’s environment, thus no capability of a compromise or breach.
All existing channels of payment acceptance remain in tact – internet, phone, mail, terminal, POS, etc.
Your brand remains in tact, your customers maintain the same experience.
We make the process easy and efficient.
Every merchant is required annual to complete an SAQ (Self Assessment Questionaire) attesting to their compliance. Fees for this service are all over the board. HOWEVER, we take the approach that if you use us as a provider and store all your information with us then we take care of all this for you.
There are four self assessment questionnaires (SAQ) to help businesses match their level of complexity to the standards. The SAQ A is the shortest version with the least amount of items to address. With Corduro, merchants qualify for the SAQ A. We even help our merchants complete the surveys.
Corduro makes virtually all of your PCI Compliance concerns go away. Our approach to eliminating your problems is to eliminate card data from your environment. This still gives your customers the desired experience while giving you control over the desired information. With Corduro, the scope of PCI Compliance is significantly reduced and no credit card data is maintained on your systems.
All sensitive data transmitted to Corduro is encrypted and stored on secured servers.
With the Corduro safe and secure seal, your customers have confidence that their transactions are protected to the highest level of security standards. Place the “Safe & Secure” seal on your website and customers can click on it for more detail on the standards that are being met during every transaction.
When using Corduro to vault your sensitive data, you’re provided a token that allow you access to charge a vaulted card by presenting the valid token. The sensitive credit card data is never on your system. Think of it as the safe deposit boxes at your bank. Each box represents the card data, and you have to present a valid key (token) to open the box.
We work directly with you to create your own token or we can generate one for you. The capability exists for multiple credit card storage per customer in the vault. During the initial scope of the process we work with you to determine any other information for us to vault in addition to sensitive card data. This includes customized fields.
