Centralised and Secure Data Management
Data is hosted in VeriSign's high-security, fully redundant, risk-free data center. All transactions between consumers and VeriSign occur over secure SSL connections.
How secure is the VeriSign payment platform?
A critical concern for electronic commerce is the secure transmission of data. To protect consumer data during transmission, VeriSign uses the latest SSL encryption technology that securely passes transaction data to the VeriSign gateway. However, an even bigger security threat to electronic commerce is the storage of sensitive data. To prevent data compromise in the storage server, VeriSign stores sensitive transaction information on secure systems that cannot be accessed through the Internet. Furthermore, VeriSign uses hardware and software firewall technology and additional encryption technology to eliminate all opportunity for intruders to break into a server and compromise information.
