We don't store raw magnetic stripe, card validation code, or PIN block data.
The Basics: PCI Compliance
Cardholder data is managed in the Braintree Vault, using multiple encryption keys with split knowledge and dual control. For example, we use multiple encryption keys with split knowledge and dual control. A data thief would not be able to make use of information stolen from a database without also having the key. This data store cannot be connected to via the internet. We also offer secure data migration to the Braintree Vault.
We require users to authenticate every time they log into the Control Panel. Passwords are never stored directly in the database, and all API and Control Panel communication between merchants and Braintree is conducted using TLS (Transport Layer Security).
We review and observe employee, customer, and vendor activity to guard against suspicious or unauthorized activities. We conduct automated vulnerability scans at least quarterly, and at least once a year we have extended penetration testing conducted by outside sources.
