PDCflow Announces Patent on Technology for Secure Payments

OGDEN, Utah — PDCflow announces partnership with US Patent owner Zukunftware, LLC for management and licensing of newly patented technology. The patent (US patent no. 9,799,029), specifically written with credit card payments in mind, allows companies using the technology to greatly reduce PCI compliance requirements by removing the credit card information from the company’s environment and storing and processing the card number through PDCflow.

“The patent award in the US has been a long time coming,” says Volker Neuwirth, inventor of the patent. “While the technology of using an inline frame (iframe) and tokenization of credit card numbers has proliferated over the past few years, this concept was brand new when the patent was filed in 2012.”

The patented technology allows companies to place a secure, PCI certified website, designed as a credit card entry field, on top of their own application. When a merchant processes a credit card payment, the card number is entered on PDCflow’s website, tokenized and the token is returned to the primary system. The token can safely be stored in the primary application and used for future payments. This allows PDCflow to provide processing services for any application while eliminating PCI requirements for that application.
