End-to-End Encryption™ (E3)


Heartland’s E3 is backed by the Heartland Secure™ Comprehensive Breach Warranty, the only one of it’s kind on the industry.

Integrating Heartland’s End-to-End Encryption technology within your payment application can remove it from PA-DSS scope, and greatly reduce the scope of a merchant’s PCI requirements.

Devices which support Heartland E3 use a combination of symmetric and asymmetric cryptography to encrypt credit and debit card data from the moment of the swipe, dip, or keyed entry. Once transmitted to Heartland, the data remains encrypted throughout our networks. The payment application never sees unencrypted card data.

E3 provides the highest degree of card data security available – all for no extra fees.

Heartland Secure: Out-of-Scope devices are always protected by E3 encryption, and Heartland has partnered with terminal technology partners such as PAX and Ingenico to enable E3 through their solutions.
