PCI Compliant Vendors

You'll Pass 100% of Every Audit or Assessment or It's Free*

Our PCI compliant hosting options easily accommodate the most complex hosting requirements for PCI compliant vendors.

Responsibilities of PCI Compliant Vendors

PCI compliant vendors manage sensitive payment card data for other organizations. Examples of vendors include independent sales organizations (ISOs), banks, card brands, credit or risk management vendors, fraud detection specialists, payment processing agents or gateways, stored value cards, SaaS developers, data warehousing and reporting platforms, and online payment service providers.

PCI compliant vendors are required to achieve PCI compliance; however, completing the PCI validation process is required only for certain types of vendors. (For more specific information on the vendors that are required to complete compliance validation, consult the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council's web site.)

Merchants Working with PCI Compliant Vendors

If you are a merchant who handles sensitive cardholder data and works with one or more PCI compliant vendors, you must be extra diligent by doing the following:

  • Ensure that your organization is PCI compliant. The security of your clients' cardholder data is ultimately your responsibility, even if you are working with PCI compliant vendors.
  • Confirm that the vendor is PCI compliant. You need to research this carefully. PCI compliant vendors, depending on their size, might not be required to complete an annual compliance validation. However, all vendors that handle sensitive cardholder data must implement the PCI requirements.
