PCI DSS is a global information security standard defined by the Payment Card Industry security standards council (PCI SSC) and is an acknowledgement that a server has been secured to the standards laid down by the organisation. The purpose is to reduce credit card fraud and applies to all organisations which process, store, or transmit cardholder information.
A PCI DSS compliant server is one that is regularly tested and constantly monitored to maintain the strictest security standards and regularly undergoes harsh tests to prove that these standards have been upheld; it is the ultimate confirmation that the server concerned is secure and capable of handling extremely sensitive personal information.
We are PCI DSS compliant company. And we can also provide you with your own independent certification to demonstrate that data you host on servers with us are also protected to this standard. Contact us to find out more.
