Shift4 introduced TrueTokenization, the first payment data tokenization solution, in 2005, helping to shape a new era in the payments industry. The company's commitment to providing best-in-class payment security solutions for retail, spa, hospitality, food and beverage, e-commerce merchants and more is underscored by a decade of 245 percent growth.
J.D. Oder II, CTO and SVP — R&D, Shift4, said:
"Shift4 created tokenization as a simple solution to a complex problem, where merchants were struggling to secure the sensitive card data they relied on to carry out their daily business. We took much of the burden of storing and securing that sensitive payment data off merchants' shoulders and placed it squarely on our own. With hackers' tactics growing more advanced, our tokenization solution, which replaces payment card data (instead of just disguising it), is all the more important."
Dave Oder, CEO, Shift4, said:
"Seven (billion) might be a lucky number, but when it comes to our customers, we'd never take a gamble. Shift4's priority has always been to develop payment solutions that not only meet merchants' short-term needs (like defending against the latest security threat), but that empower them to optimize their operations for the long-term. Tokenization was invented out of this commitment, and we are thrilled with the impact that it has had on the industry. We look forward to achieving more milestones as we continue to develop and provide the fastest, most secure and reliable payment solutions in the industry. You can bet on that."
