On Tokenization: Tokenization & Payment Channels
December 21, 2011 | POSTED BY ALEX PEZOLD IN PCI, TOKENIZATION
Implementing tokenization is much more about understanding how your organization interacts with payments than it is simply rolling out a device that will tokenize payment card data. Many tokenization solutions in the market today are a "silver bullet" and can remove your environment from PCI scope. Beware though, most solutions address only one piece of the tokenization puzzle. Whether it be token generation or storing the token/credit card association, make sure your solution provider has designed, or can develop, a solution to integrate with your payment channels.
