Peer 1 Hosting Achieves The Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard
I got a press release in my inbox today announcing that hosting provider Peer 1 Hosting has achieved the Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification for its managed hosting and co-location data centres worldwide. As a result, clients can now rest assured that their applications are supported in a PCI compliant environment:
PCI DSS is a set of robust and comprehensive standards developed to increase payment data security and is endorsed by the major payment card brands: American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc.
If you’re a business who needs to ensure that anything that requires credit card transaction processing are in a secure environment, this is important. You really don’t have any excuse but to find the mot secure environment possible. Peer 1 makes the list of providers who can offer a high level of security very short.
