Common PCI Compliance Challenges

PCI DSS compliance is a complicated issue, but one that all businesses involved in storing, processing or transmitting cardholder data must address. And when the 12 separate PCI requirements with more than 200 security controls are dropped into the laps of your IT staff, the road to achieving PCI compliance certification can appear to be a truly daunting responsibility. Therefore, enlisting assistance from a PCI compliant managed services provider makes more sense than ever.

The rewards from seeking PCI compliance help from an expert managed hosting provider are clear and valuable.
