Because we are experts in the technology required to become your PCI compliant host your organization can focus on their mission critical activities.

What is a PCI Compliant Host?

A PCI compliant host serves businesses that store, transmit, and process credit cards and other primary account information. All merchants that accept credit cards, as well as banks and processing organizations that handle credit card information, are required to protect consumer account data from security breaches and identity theft.

The alternative to using the services of a PCI compliant host is to deploy and manage the primary account data environment yourself. Given the costs and burdens of achieving and maintaining PCI compliance, the better option is to hire a PCI DSS hosting provider to do it on your behalf.

Why Hire a Managed Service Provider to be Your PCI Compliant Host?

When you select a managed service provider as your PCI compliant host, you can be assured that your sensitive account data will not fall into the hands of hackers and unauthorized users. These companies are PCI DSS compliant, which means that they follow a stringent set of requirements from the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to protect account data and to ensure that security processes and procedures are consistent. A PCI compliant host also has additional IT controls to further reduce risk.

A managed service provider can help you achieve and maintain PCI compliance by protecting your customers' account data with:

  • Firewalls that prevent unauthorized traffic
  • Encryption whenever account data is transmitted through open, public networks
  • Regular network tests to verify that rigid security controls are applied and working properly
  • Strong passwords and other network security protocols
  • Anti-virus software that provides protection from data corruption and destruction

Hiring a managed service provider as your PCI compliant host also allows you to focus on your core business instead of worrying about keeping up with the latest regulations. You can relax and deliver the high quality products your customers expect and deserve.
