Your White-Label Solution

A technologically superior payments stack needs the best-of-breed across all its components.

Enhance your solution by adding a VGS Vault and offering VGS Collect and VGS Proxy to your merchants.

VGS Vault

VGS Vault is a payment acceptance and issuing enablement platform that protects sensitive information and offsets PCI compliance liability for merchants, merchant payment enablers, fintechs, and financial institutions.

VGS intercepts the sensitive data before it hits merchant servers and replaces it with aliased versions while securing the original data in their VGS Vault.

VGS Collect

VGS Collect enables merchants to obtain and operate on sensitive information without becoming liable.

It is a secure way to collect sensitive payment data from end users without touching merchant systems. Merchants can protect and secure their data in a tokenized form in their VGS Vault while controlling the user interface and input fields.

VGS Collect forms adhere to PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, and CCPA requirements to achieve customer compliance.

VGS Proxy

VGS Proxies provide a connectivity layer between a merchant's applications, servers, and third-party providers.

Proxies allow for tokenization, storage, and transformation of data in API payloads both before reaching merchant servers and after leaving them. This prevents the merchant environment from handling sensitive data and reduces PCI exposure.

Proxies maximize flexibility by supporting multiple protocols (HTTP, FTP, IVR, Email and TCP).

Faster Time to Market Across Card Networks and Payment Methods

Growth

  • Data Centralization - Merchants can grow more efficiently when they utilize a provider-agnostic third-party vault to centralize their data and have the flexibility of sending it to any PSP or processor without needing individual integrations
  • Faster Time to Market Across Card Networks and Payment Methods - Merchants can add on Value-Added Services to their VGS Vault such as VGS Network Tokens, Real-Time Account Updater, and Card Attributes to launch and grow sooner with a single provider
  • Minimize Technical Lift - Merchants eliminate the need for significant engineering resources to become PCI-compliant and embed new payment technologies sooner.

Scalability

  • Built for Scale - With a single universal vault, merchants can efficiently handle large data volumes and streamline transaction processing and routing.
  • Flexibility - VGS Network Tokens and Real-Time Account Updater are directly integrated with the Visa and Mastercard networks to optimize costs, minimize latency, and maximize revenue-generating features.
    • Our Network Tokens can manage all use cases (COF, MIT/CIT, Subscriptions) and come with individual sub-TRIDs to better track and manage their use.
    • Our Real-Time Account Updater utilizes direct network API-based integration instead of outdated file-based methods to get faster updates.
  • Network-Agnostic - Even if merchants could contract with each network, the process would be long and arduous. Instead, enable them to use a universal solution across networks.
  • One Solution Across Data Types - Merchants can consolidate with a single provider to replace a fragmented solution set for data types across PCI, PII, Bank Accounts, Pay by Bank, Mobile Wallets, and more.
