Gartner releases tokenization report featuring CardConnect


Gartner, Inc., a renowned information technology research and advisory company, recently released the report, Market Guide for Merchant/Acquirer Tokenization of Payment Card Data. One of the featured vendors? CardConnect.

The gist of Gartner’s report is rather simple: tokenizing sensitive data is a key element in ensuring payment system security. Gartner elaborated further and encouraged businesses adhere to a certain set of tokenization standards with the goal of eliminating all stored cardholder data (CHD).

Why tokenize?

Gartner dives into the key advantages of implementing tokenization. You’ll have to access the report to learn the full details, but they boil down to three main areas:

  1. Simplification of Compliance Monitoring
  2. PCI DSS Compliance Scope Reduction
  3. End-to-End Data Security

In their report, Gartner highlights CardConnect as a representative tokenization vendor. Our solution, CardSecure, provides both on-premise and off-premise tokenization, delivering protection for CHD and personally identifiable information (PII).
