The Secure Sockets Layer protects data transferred over the Internet using
encryption enabled by a server’s SSL Certificate. When you checkout and the
servers utilize SSL, the data is encrypted on your computer and can only be
unencrypted by our servers, not 3rd party hackers. Point&Shop utilizes
Verisign for SSL encryption, the encryption leader. 47 of the top 50 e-commerce
websites utilize Verisign.
To ensure that the SSL encryption is functioning properly and that hackers
cannot gain access to the Point&Shop secure servers, two security auditing
services constantly monitor our servers: Hacker Safe and Square Trade.
ScanAlert's HACKER SAFE certification is the only security scanning technology
recognized to meet both the U.S. government's benchmark FBI/SANS security test
and the security standards of all major credit card companies - including Visa™
CISP and AIS, MasterCard™ SDP, American Express™ CID, and Discover Card™ DISC
security audits. For additional security, Point&Shop is also scanned by Square
Trade for security compliance.
