Q&A on the Optional P2PE Solution Inventory Template


Point-to-Point Encryption (P2PE) technology makes data unreadable so it has no value to criminals even if stolen in a breach. Merchants can take advantage of this technology with a P2PE solution, a combination of secure devices, applications, and processes that encrypt payment card data from the point it is used at a payment terminal until it reaches a secure point of decryption. PCI P2PE Solutions are those that have been validated as meeting the rigorous security requirements of the PCI P2PE Standard and are listed on the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) website. PCI P2PE Solutions provide the strongest protection for payment card data and can simplify merchant efforts to comply with the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
