In conjunction with the National Retail Federation’s Big Show, we are excited to announce that Merchant Link, along with our partners Equinox Payments and Voltage Security, has implemented a cutting-edge, reliable, cloud-based solution to protect sensitive payment data.

Columbia Sportswear, which is best known for its outdoor apparel and accessories, was motivated by the desire to reduce its PCI scope across its retail locations.  Columbia was facing an issue that many retailers face and needed to minimize storage of payment data on its network environment.  By implementing proven solutions that were integrated specifically to meet the needs of this major retailer, Columbia will not only reduce PCI scope but will have a scalable solution as their payment needs evolve when contactless, electronic wallets and EMV become more mainstream.

This is certainly big news for us at the NRF show, as it reinforces how cutting-edge security payments solutions are moving to the cloud.  In support of this announcement, we have also developed a unique microsite called “Protect All Points,” which highlights all the information you need about this new implementation.  And, be sure to stay tuned for video from the NRF show.

In addition, we are sponsoring the 2012 Tech Global Partners’ Annual Cocktail Reception at the Marriott Marquee Sunday night.  We look forward to seeing all of our customers, partners and friends in the media next week at the NRF show.  New York City, here we come!
