Robust, Reliable, Safe, and Secure

Technology and security go hand in hand at eWAY. From maintaining legal compliance to ensuring that our global infrastructure processes millions of payments without fail, eWAY systems are designed to meet expectations. Of course, behind all that hardware and software are helpful humans dedicated to exceed them.


True infrastructure redundancy

Thanks to eWAY’s redundant data centres in multiple cities, we process online payments 24/7—even in the case of local blackouts or other network disruptions. Data is replicated across all sites, ensuring that customer information is never lost.

Clustered web architecture

eWAY’s mission-critical architecture—supported by backups of backups—drives industry leading uptime. And, with duplicates of every device within our environment, our datacenter teams can instantly divert traffic should any system fail.

Akamai assured routing

When it comes to Internet integrity, eWAY and Akamai are on the same page. Our partnership with the global leader in DNS assurance guarantees that traffic passing to the eWAY gateway is routed to the correct location within our environment.


Military grade protection

Between the hackers and the predators, modern threats demand serious deterrents. That’s why eWAY secures all your customer and credit-card data with military-grade software and servers, and the highest level of encryption available.

PCI DSS compliance

Security compliance matters to your customers and it should matter to your business. eWAY is tier-one PCI DSS compliant—as externally audited by Stratsec (QSA)—ensuring the highest security standards set by Visa and MasterCard.

Cheap SSL certification

Protect customer data and gain consumer trust by adding world-class SSL certification to your site. Platinum Partnerships with the leading SSL brands allow us to integrate globally-recognised certificates across your platform at a fraction of the retail cost.

The PCI DSS is a set of rules created by the PCI Security Standards Council, which consists of the biggest players in the payment card industry, in order to facilitate the adoption of a consistent set of standards for the processing, handling and storing of sensitive credit card information. 

Sound complicated? There’s no need to worry - when you power your site with a third party payment provider, such as eWAY, you can significantly reduce the scope of your compliance requirements. When you use eWAY’s RAPID API, Transparent Redirect, ​Client Side Encryption or Responsive Shared payment solution, you don’t touch your customers’ credit card data: it’s processed directly from their browser to eWAY’s secure payment gateway. eWAY is certified as meeting Tier 1 of the PCI DSS compliance criteria, which is the highest level of compliance available and is the same levels of data security of  the biggest banks in the world.
