Adyen API: Easy Encryption Solution
The Easy Encryption Solution enables merchants to offer the highest end-to-end security for their customers worldwide while retaining complete control over the customer shopping experience. The solution can be used for payment checkout on all desktop and mobile devices, and caters to particular demand for encrypted payment capability over native mobile apps though a simple library integration.
Adyen Manages Cardholder Data | Reducing PCI DSS compliance impact for merchants
Adyen’s API encrypts the customer’s payment data in the web browser or app and the data remains encrypted until it reaches Adyen’s servers. Throughout this process, the customer’s data is immune to security threats. The Adyen solution takes on the burden of managing cardholder data and encryption, removing the need for the payment to be routed through the merchant’s server thus reducing the costs involved with meeting and monitoring Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance.
Accept in-App Card and Alternative Payments through one API
An increasing number of online merchants across sectors such as ticketing, travel, consumer services, retail and social networking are choosing to sell to customers via native apps because this offers an optimized checkout experience around the world. Adyen’s Easy Encryption Solution is the only solution of its kind available on an international scale. It enables merchants from all around the world to use their own payment pages to connect with Adyen’s Payment Platform and accept card payments in 187 currencies as well as a large number of alternative payment methods.
