FAS is one of the very few systems in the floral industry to have ever
been certified for PCI compliance. FAS was originally certified for
PCI compliance back in 2009. FAS's PCI compliance was recertified in 2015
by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council.
More recently, FAS has raised its own security standards by incorporating the
latest EMV chip card credit card security technology into its systems. Secure credit
card devices facilitate end-to-end encryption which guarantees that credit card
data is instantly encrypted when the card data is swiped, dipped (chip),
tapped (smart phone), or keyed, and that the data remains encrypted. Tokenization
is a process that involves substituting a token--a string of letters and
numbers--that represents the actual credit card data. These technologies
remove virtually any possibility of a data breach in your shop because text
credit card data never exists in the memory or on the hard disk drive of your
server or workstations. The secure chip card reader allows you to process the
chip on a credit card, swipe the magnetic strip on an older legacy card, and accept
contactless payments from customers' smart phones using Apple Pay and Android Pay.
This new technology represents the highest level of data security and functionality
available in the credit card industry, and these benefits are available at low,
fair, transparent pricing.
