Sage Payment Solutions
The Sage Vault is a series of web services designed for merchants, software vendors and partners to securely store merchant credit card data in compliance with Payment Card Industry (PCI) standards. The PCI security standard, upheld by Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover, is a mandatory global standard to ensure the protection of cardholder data. It requires that merchants and processors make their physical and virtual environments secure. To verify that Sage Payment Solutions is compliant, click here.
Simplified Secure Payment Processing
Sage Vault performs two functions; secure processing of transactions behind our gateway firewall and encrypted data storage and maintenance. The vault assists merchants in being PCI compliant by providing a non-resident encrypted storage solution. The vault employs a Globally Unique Identifier (GUID) also known as an alias, which is stored on the merchant’s server or host software to represent the encrypted data securely stored behind our firewall. Transactions are processed using the GUID, their Sage Merchant_ID and Sage M_Key.
The patent pending technology used to create the vault offers a proven solution. Based on Sage Gateway XML Web services, the Sage Vault is an extension of services already in use by many merchant and application software providers. The combination of merchant services and gateway processing means truly integrated services with a single point of support contact. The vault has proven to be very beneficial to nonprofit software providers and value added resellers integrated with a payment gateway.
