Parking Technology Leader ParkingSoft Taps Layered Tech for PCI Compliant Cloud Hosting

May 21, 2014

Plano, Texas – Layered Tech, a leading global secure cloud and hosting services provider, is now the PCI compliant hosting partner for ParkingSoft, the leading provider of hardware and software services for public and private parking facilities throughout North America.

ParkingSoft’s SaaS application allows parking facility operators to manage locations from anywhere in the world through cloud-hosted portals. Its clients range from hospitals and parking garages to off-airport facilities, hotels and more.

Partnering with Layered Tech allows ParkingSoft to transition away from their previous colocation hosting model, which created complexity and required investment in dedicated staff to manage PCI DSS compliance, after years of rapid growth. Rather than investing heavily in new colocation infrastructure and staff, ParkingSoft selected Layered Tech to manage the majority of PCI IT controls and IT infrastructure, with a focus on security and compliance.

“Rather than growing a complete systems team internally, we wanted to be able to leverage a new partnership, allowing us to turn our focus away from systems and towards our customers,” said Dennis Owens, ParkingSoft Director of Support and IT Services.

ParkingSoft is using “Layered Tech’s Layer 4: Compliance Management” service, which provides the industry’s only compliance guarantee, assuring clients that their hosted systems will pass every security or PCI compliance audit. Layered Tech offers similar services for HIPAA compliance and FISMA compliance.

“It became clear that very few hosting providers offered the breadth and depth of assistance with our IT controls and PCI DSS compliance, and only Layered Tech offered any type of compliance SLA or audit guarantee,” Owens said. “It became an easy choice.”

In addition to Layer 4 management, ParkingSoft will also benefit from Layered Tech’s Application Performance Management (APM), a service designed to support clients with complex web applications. Layered Tech APM will help ParkingSoft understand its application’s scalability and stress areas, allowing it to deliver faster, more reliable products to its customers throughout North America.

“We are pleased that ParkingSoft selected us to help them achieve their long-term business growth objectives,” said Layered Tech Regional Sales Manager, Jeff Chester. “Our consultative approach and third-party audit support will help them expand into a virtual environment while ensuring continuity of critical applications.” Chester added, “Demonstrating that we could help them achieve compliance in a shared cloud gave them peace of mind in knowing that they could stay focused on their core business and get to market faster. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
