Protect and adhere to PCI standards with us.

PCI compliance is about adhering to a set of security related standards which are designed to protect sensitive data on credit/debit cards while a financial transaction is underway and after its completion. It extends to other kinds of data transmission too, for example, giving credit card data to a merchant on the phone. If you store, process, or transmit cardholder data, or provide services to merchants that do any of this, you need to ensure you are PCI-DSS compliant. The data security standard is for any organization that handles cardholder data for Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and JCB.

So, whether you are a running a small internet business or a large corporation, if you are accepting payment through cards, whether online or offline, you have to comply with PCI security standards.

What is PCI compliance hosting?

Financial transactions on the internet run on trust. Customer should be convinced that they can enter their data on your website without the risk of loopholes in security measures. If it weren’t so, e-commerce would not have become the phenomenon that it has.

On the other hand, server breaches can compromise the safety of such data. It is vital that you host this information with a company that has a secure network and is capable of keeping the cardholder data safe. We help businesses ensure that their customers can make non-cash purchases confidently

The approach we take in helping you go through PCI compliance from a technology standpoint:

Assess – We review your hosting environment and recommend what PCI compliance standards and security requirements you need.

Implement – If you decide to act on our recommendations, we go through the recommendations we’ve made and implement the necessary PCI compliance.

Review – After your PCI compliance suite is online and running, we perform checks to monitor the controls and the hosted environment.
