credit card vaultingOne of the biggest barriers to PCI compliance for many businesses is simply storing credit card information. There are plenty of reasons to keep credit card info close to hand. For instance, you might offer recurring payments to your customers. You could need the data for record-keeping purposes. You might even want to store data for customers to use on an e-commerce site. In all of these cases, one of the best solutions for remaining compliant is credit card data vaulting.

Credit card vaulting is a straightforward and easy-to-implement solution for almost every business. What are the benefits of using TokenEx’s credit card vaulting over securing the data yourself? There are several, including:
