DataSpace data center has been awarded the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) v. 3.1. which was developed by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), founded by the world’s major payment systems.
PCI DSS compliance is mandatory for any company working with major payment systems (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, etc.) This standard protects against theft of customer information and other types of transactional fraud. The infrastructure analysis, performed during the certification, reflects the level of security for the system that stores, processes and transmits cardholder data.
Kirill Pavelev, VP of Technology, DataSpace: «PCI DSS v. 3.1. certificate plays a the major role when selecting a data center for banking institutions, large retailers or any company that either handles card payments or processes personal data. It guarantees reliability and high levels of physical security of a data center. When financial institutions choose our data center, this certificate enables us to guarantee physical security of customer’s servers under our SLA, leading to significant time and budget savings for our customers, due to effectively skipping this step during their own certification process.»
Arsen Kondakhchan, Head of IT Dept, BPC Banking Technologies: «We were happy to learn that DataSpace1 data center was recently re-certified for full compliance with PCI DSS v. 3.1 requirements. It simplifies the certification process for us, as a processing center, and this is certainly important.
