PayPoint.net has announced that PCI specialist and Qualified Security Assessor, Nettitude, has confirmed PayPoint’s PCI Level One compliance status to the PCI Standards Council after the required on-site audit and security testing were finalised last month. Compliance ensures that PayPoint.net’s online payment platform continues to remain secured to global standards.
Dan Salmons, Managing Director E&M Commerce, PayPoint, commented: “PCI Compliance is not for the faint-hearted these days. With the standards being updated regularly in accordance with new security measures, it is a technically complex, challenging and resource intensive task, even for the most experienced organisations.
“As a partner in their PCI strategy, we can safeguard our clients from further changes to the rules, and they also benefit from our platform’s additional capabilities, such as our tokenisation functionality.”
