EdgeShield is OpenEdge’s proprietary bundle of advanced security solutions designed to deliver industry-leading fraud-reduction services to merchants. And it is only available to OpenEdge merchants. EdgeShield allows for a multi-pronged approach to transaction security, combining features such as EMV compatibility, data encryption and advanced tokenization. EdgeShield protects credit card data while at rest as well as in transit when integrated into payment processing systems.

Merchant data breaches can be expensive, if not catastrophic. The price tag for a typical data breach can approach $50,000 or more, with lost business the most significant cost. And they happen virtually every day – thousands of data breaches have been reported in the last five years alone. As EMV technology has made card-present fraud less lucrative for fraudsters, they have increasingly focused on other targets – primarily small and medium businesses.

EMV Benefits


EMV chip-based card technology is the new credit card security standard worldwide. Available in Europe for many years, EMV is now well-established in the US with more merchants accepting EMV cards every day. Getting merchants up and running quickly and easily with EMV is a goal we specialize in at OpenEdge.

The OpenEdge EMV solution is sophisticated and feature-rich, incorporating growing technologies including Near Field Communication (NFC), Apple Pay™, Google Pay™, tokenization, end-to-end encryption and more. We can get you set up with EMV-capable devices that can support Point-of-Sale or mobile EMV transactions.

PCI compliance can be a difficult requirement to understand for merchants of all sizes. In response, OpenEdge developed PCI ASSURE®, our PCI compliance assistance program for merchants. PCI ASSURE offers all the resources and support you’ll need to understand PCI requirements and secure your processing environment. Components of the PCI ASSURE solution include:

  • ACCESS TO THE PCI ASSURE MERCHANT PORTAL — 24/7 access to our web-based portal that guides you through the Self-Assessment Questionnaire (SAQ) that applies to you.
  • QUARTERLY IP NETWORK VULNERABILITY SCANS — Administered by ControlScan, these comprehensive system scans are designed to locate problems in your environment before a compromise occurs
  • SECURITY POLICY BUILDER — This online tool creates a set of custom security policies that are automatically generated based on the way you process payment cards, making it easy to comply with the PCI DSS security policy requirements
  • TOLL FREE CUSTOMER SUPPORT — With PCI ASSURE, the OpenEdge PCI Service Team is available to you, offering live assistance whenever you need it. You’re always just a phone call away from help
  • SECURITY BREACH PROTECTION — The PCI ASSURE Program includes affordable breach reimbursement that covers a merchant for up to $100,000 ($0 deductible) to pay for audits, fines or other expenses associated with a processing breach. The breach reimbursement is applicable even to merchants who haven’t yet achieved PCI compliance but are signed up with the OpenEdge PCI ASSURE program. This is a truly unique benefit only available to OpenEdge merchants

One of our merchants had this to say...


“I am the Site Manager of a Mini Storage business and wanted to take a moment to let you know what incredible customer service I have received from everyone at OpenEdge in setting up a new account, installation/training and, most importantly, the process of tokenization to help us transition to a new property management software company. Anna has been a Godsend!”
