Payment Tokenization

Citcon supports payment tokenization to keep customer data secure. Tokens are strings of random characters used to replace sensitive information, such as credit card numbers. Tokens are used during payment transactions so that no sensitive information is transmitted during the payment process. While a credit card number might be useful to a thief, a random token is not.

Payment with credit card Dots

Keep Sensitive Data Off Your Servers

Sensitive data gets passed to a secure off-site server, which returns a token to your system. That randomized token can then be stored in your system and re-used for customer purchases. 

Minimize Risk

Tokenization is a great solution if you want to keep sensitive data completely off your system. The less customer data stored in your system, the less data hackers can steal during a breach.

Reduce Your PCI Compliance Burden

Tokenization can reduce your PCI Compliance burden because no sensitive data is stored in your system. This minimizes the risk, and reduces the impact, of cyber attacks.


What is tokenization in payment gateway?

Tokenization is used to replace the 16-digit credit card number by a randomly generated string of characters, known as a token.

What is tokenization security?

Tokens are a string of random characters used to replace sensitive information, such as a credit card number. They are used during digital wallet payment transactions so that no sensitive information is transmitted during payment. A random string of characters is much more secure than a credit card number.

What is the difference between encryption and tokenization?

Encryption encrypts information such as a credit card number by using a cipher. The encrypted information can be turned back into a credit card number using the cipher. Tokenization generates a random string of numbers which replace a credit card number. The token cannot be converted back into a credit card number using a cipher.
