ATLANTA, Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Payments Inc. (NYSE: GPN), a leader in electronic transaction payment processing, and CRE Secure, the industry's leading cloud-based, secure payment solution for merchants, today announce an agreement to incorporate CRE Secure's HTML Clone® technology within Global Payments' award-winning Global Transport® Secure eCommerce solution. The solution addresses the small to mid-sized business (SMB) eCommerce segment.

Global Payments' merchants will be able to implement CRE Secure's HTML Clone payment technology through Global Transport in North America later this year. With HTML Clone, merchants can outsource PCI-sensitive parts of the checkout process. As a result, the merchant's systems are no longer within the scope of their PCI DSS compliance obligations, allowing a significant reduction in ongoing costs and providing a seamless checkout experience for their consumers..

"Using HTML Clone technology will not only decrease the drop rate, or shopping cart abandonment, caused by other hosted payment pages, it will seamlessly integrate with multiple shopping carts in a completely PCI-compliant environment, increasing eCommerce conversion significantly," said Sid Singh, senior vice president and global head of product for Global Payments.

Gary Austin, owner/operator of Gary Austin Advertising and an existing customer of CRE Secure utilizing the HTML Clone technology said, "This product gives me the peace of mind that my websites are compliant, secure and customer friendly in a cost-effective environment, while being simple to maintain. The shopping cart integration modules within this solution, such as Magento, X-Cart and OS Commerce, made implementation fast and easy, allowing me to focus on the strategic initiatives of my business."

"Merchants who process their payments through Global Payments will never need to house or process sensitive credit card data on their servers, yet they can enjoy the same features and functionality found on larger competitors' websites," said Kevin Lee, CEO of CRE Secure. "They now have the capability to meaningfully reduce the scope of PCI compliance without expensive upgrades to the network or data center hosting costs."
