The importance of debit card security for businesses

Business owners who want a better way to manage their expenses might be considering getting business debit cards. Some may be hesitant to do so because of fears about security. When businesses are thinking about debit cards for their employees, it is important that they select cards that have great security features so that the business owners may have peace of mind. Bento for Business offers innovative business debit cards that can help business owners to prevent fraud and control expenses while using the highest level of encryption technology available.

Why debit card security matters

Debit card security is important to prevent would-be thieves from accessing your money and your financial information. In today’s world, purchases can be made online using credit and debit card numbers. Thieves try to steal card information so that they can make purchases and take money from around the world. Bento for Business was started by professionals with financial backgrounds who understand the importance of debit and credit card security. The debit card security features at Bento for Business includes 256-bit SSL Encryption, which is the highest level of security that is available for cards and is the level that is used by banks.

FDIC insurance for peace of mind

When you choose Bento for Business, you make a deposit into your account. From your deposit, you can choose how much money with which to fund each of your debit cards. Funds held within Bento are FDIC insured to at least $250,000 through The Bancorp Bank; Member FDIC. If the worst-case scenario happens, you can feel confident in knowing that your money will be safe. In addition, you are able to set daily or weekly spending limits for your individual employees on their cards. The cards allow you to limit the types of spending that can be completed by each employee according to the purchases that his or her job demands. For instance, if you have an employee whose job requires him or her to drive, you can limit his or her card to gasoline purchases only. If your employee attempts to purchase anything else, the transaction attempt will be denied. You will be able to see exactly how your money is being spent by logging into your secure dashboard.
