How OpenWater and Payment Gateways Work Together

How OpenWater and Payment Gateways Work Together


OpenWater has retained a security firm to independently validate our PCI compliance efforts. We do the heavy lifting so that you can safely use many popular payment gateways. Read on to learn more about how we work with a variety of popular gateways. If you are a prospective customer, your sales representative can provide you our compliance materials. If you are a current customer you can reach out to your support rep to request our PCI Compliance documentation, Recent Scan Results, and Quarterly PEN Test results.

 


Client-Side Encryption and Tokenization for all Gateways
To ensure maximum security, no credit card data passes through the main OpenWater Platform. When a user enters their credit card number, we encrypt the data before the web browser can pass it along.
  • We take extra precautions to make sure the non-encrypted card number cannot be captured in transit.
  • This tokenized information along with other Credit Card information such as first name and last name are then sent via a second layer of encrypted transit using TLS 1.2.
  • A very narrow portion of code which is reviewed by a third party security firm then decrypts the payload and process the card information.
  • This portion of code uses a PA-DSS certified payment processing component.
  • No credit card information is ever stored
