Since its inception in 2006, CardConnect has been developing advanced payment solutions backed by patented, PCI- validated point-to-point encryption (P2PE) and tokenization. Today, more than 230,000 businesses, ranging from Fortune 500 companies to youthful startups, use CardConnect to process, manage and secure their transactions. Our small-to-midsize business offering, CardPointe, is a comprehensive platform that includes a robust reporting and transaction management portal that extends to a native mobile app. For software vendors, our cloud-based Bolt P2PE solution brings the power of point-to-point encryption to any software application, with the option to integrate EMV-ready terminals for secure chip card acceptance. CardConnect has grown steadily over the years and eventually in 2017 was purchased by First Data, the world's largest electronic payment processor for continued business growth.
