Consider your PCI compliance covered.

To keep your customers’ data safe from hackers, credit and debit card issuers require UK businesses to follow a series of security guidelines called PCI compliance. Square products are compliant so you don’t have to pay extra for your data security.

  • No stress of maintaining and updating your compliance each year.
  • No expensive audits, assessments or non-compliance fees.

Data encryption and monitoring that runs 24/7.

Your data – and your customers’ data – is safeguarded from the start. Payments are encrypted with proprietary software, which ensures unencrypted payment data never touches your device or application.

  • In-house teams constantly monitor our server security.
  • All security tools are designed and maintained by Square, so you don’t need to work with anyone else.
