Payment gateway is a technology which enables the customers to make payment through their credit card or debit cards without making the sensitive information public. A payment gateway implements a high level of security which encrypts sensitive data and ensures that information is passed securely from the customer to the acquiring bank, via the merchant.
So in other words, the Payment gateway works in the middle between the customer and the service provider hence ensuring that payment is completed securely and seamlessly.
To deploy the payment gateway on a Cloud server, the prerequisite for the same is security as in a payment transaction sensitive information like card details are used to make the payment and to protect this sensitive information is the basic requirement for the payment gateway.
E2E Cloud can be chosen to run your payment gateway. The following features of E2E Cloud help you to decide which vendor to choose.
DDOS Protection – E2E Networks all the cloud machines are protected from the DDOS( Distributed Denial of Services) attack at the network level and E2E Networks ensures that clean traffic reaches the server and it stops all the suspicious traffic at the network level and hence creates the first line of defence from such attacks for the payment gateway server.
Tier3+ Certified Data Centre – E2E Networks have co-located all the servers in tier3+ certified data centre which comes with a very high degree of security along with a robust platform with N+1 redundancy.
Helps to make customer’s environment PCI DSS Compliant – PCI DSS is the information security standard for organizations that ensure that all the companies that processes, stores and transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. Many of the fintech companies like Instant Pay, SRS live and Verifone etc are using E2E Cloud services for running their payment gateway.
CDP Backup and Security – E2E Networks provides an automated backup solution for all of its cloud machines. The backup agent will give customers an option to take backup as per their convenience and can choose the backup frequency. By default, a backup agent takes backup every 6 hours and hence 4 times in 24 hours but customers can reduce the frequency if it is required at his end. Also, backup restoration is quite easy and in a single click, the backup can be restored in the same server or at different servers altogether.
BitNinja and Imunifi 360 Security shields – E2E Cloud also provides BitNinja and Imunifi 360 security shields to provide an additional layer of security to its servers. These security shields protect the servers from unwanted access through any port using honey trap techniques.
Dedicated Firewall – A firewall is a dedicated hardware that decides what services you want to expose publicly/Internet-facing and the rest can be hidden behind the firewall. E2E Cloud’s dedicated firewall makes sure that any kind of access to your servers is restricted to the outside world and applications that require access publicly can be exposed publicly and the rest of the servers can be restricted.
Enabling best practices at the customer’s end – E2E Cloud recommends to implement best practices to improve the security of the customer’s environment. For example, Always use SSH-based access to the server and remove password-based access altogether. Patches and upgrades come under the customer’s responsibility hence server admin makes sure that they regularly upgrade the server patches to avoid any kind of vulnerability.
These features on E2E Cloud along with best practices at the customer’s end makes it an ideal platform to run your mission-critical payment gateway on E2E Cloud.
