Basis Theory is a third-party, processor-agnostic token vault and encryption management system. It allows companies to think more strategically about their payments stack and the associated sensitive data – without adding compliance and/or data liabilities. Whether it’s a new payment process to increase acceptance or to decrease costs, a backup system that does not require reauthorization of a customer’s card, or tokenizing bank account and billing data, the Basis Theory platform can help.

“Basis Theory is the world’s first payments infrastructure company built from the ground up with a data security and usability mindset. It is our belief that companies should control their customer’s payments,” said Colin Luce, Co-Founder & CEO, Basis Theory. “We are excited to join other Nacha Preferred Partners focused on data security and usability as keys to protecting and improving the ACH Network.”
