Promise Pay offers a number of important security features to give their customers a peace of mind that their funds and accounts and being protected against potential theft and fraud. One great feature in particular is two factor authentication. For any action taken place on the Promise pay platform, users will need to enter a unique authentication code delivered directly to their mobile device. This important security feature is implemented on all transactions regardless of size.

Promise Pay has also protected all client information in a PCI DSS compliant vault. This means that in the event that Promise Pay is compromised by cyber criminals, sensitive consumer information is kept protected from thieves that could cause serious financial problems. This proactive security measure means users can store their information on Promise Pay servers with confidence that their data will not be compromised.

Instead, Promise Pay uses partner banks Bank of America in the United States and National Australia Bank in Australia. Through the use of partner banks, Promise Pay customers will still be able to access their funds in the event that Promise Pay is not available for assistance in the future.

In online transactions, identity verification is incredibly important. Promise Pay utilizes 2048 Bit SSL asymmetric encryption to make sure that sensitive data is viewed only by those for whom it was intended. 2048 Bit SSL certificates are industry standard and used in every service that Promise Pay offers.

Of course, security is an ongoing process. Encryption alone is not sufficient to prevent cyber crime. Promise Pay routinely conducts both internal and external security audits to ensure that any potential bugs that could serve as points of weakness.

Promise Pay even goes the extra mile to conduct background tests on all employees to ensure that each individual working with the company can be trusted with conducting daily activities that involve sensitive consumer data. Promise Pay is committed to consumer safety and creating a safe platform for online transactions.
