Authentication- The Basis of Trust - PN D998200530

If it can’t be authenticated, it can’t be trusted! In any financial transaction system, you want to know with a high degree of certainty who you’re dealing with, how your privacy is protected, where the money is coming from and going to, how much is at stake, and what’s your recourse if something unexpected occurs. In short, you want to trust the system. How can trust be established? At MagTek we believe its by a combination of things, including cryptography, tokenization, and authentication, which happens to be the strongest of them all.

The Heart of Magensa - PN D99875442

The Heart of Magensa’s Credential Authentication Service. MagnePrint®: A Real Time Risk Management Tool. There are several technologies that underlay all the fraud prevention, detection and advisory services offered by Magensa. When card credentials are involved, the first is cryptography and the second, but more important component, is MagnePrint. The MagnePrint risk management tool allows Magensa to provide the Payment Card Industry (PCI) with an additional layer of protection against fraud, in card-present credit, debit and ATM transactions. The purpose of this paper is to explain to a technically informed audience the tool, the technology and processes behind it, and the benefits that will accrue from the use of MagnePrint to issuers, processors, acquirers, merchants, brands and consumers.

White Paper: A Letter to the Industry - PN D99810031

At Magensa, we are at war with the terrorists who have targeted the payment card industry. With counterfeit card usage and “card not present” swindles, these criminals seek not only to steal vast sums of money to fund their illegal activities and lavish lifestyles, they also wish to disrupt the civility of our lives, and undermine confidence in our payment and financial systems.

White Paper: MagneSafe Security Architecture - PN D99875440

The payment industry is caught up in a security quandary. The PCI DSS has provided a set of rules in an attempt to shore up protection of cardholder data and improve the overall security of the payment system. But the new regulations, system changes, documentation, audit requirements, and threat of financial penalties have imposed new burdens on merchants and payment intermediaries prompting some to question whether the gain is worth the pain. Whereas convenience was once the hallmark of credit, debit and ATM card networks, these days regulatory issues, liability concerns, and financial costs that now extend well beyond interchange fees have dampened the mood of card accepting retailers to the point where cash and checks look more appealing. Now merchants and other payment system intermediaries are being asked to invest even greater sums in technology to further secure the cardholder. Will these investments payoff or invite more oversight, regulation and needless cost?

White Paper: The Story of Little Billy Waldron - PN D99875608

White paper outlining the issues with exposed cardholder data. Ladies and Gentlemen of the Jury, thank you for being here today to render your verdict on this important case before you. The question you must answer today, now that you have heard all the evidence is: Was Sincerra Payment Systems at fault for its handling of cardholder data? Surely, the personal data of nearly 100 million cardholders was exposed to criminals. We know these criminals have already used some of this information to make counterfeit cards and defraud countless victims and we do not yet know how many more victims will come forward as time goes on, as many of the real criminals remain un-apprehended. Yet, today you must judge Sincerra.
