Paypoint has announced it has achieved PCI DSS compliance for its online payment platform for the tenth consecutive year.
PCI specialist and Qualified Security Assessor Nettitude has confirmed PayPoint’s PCI Level 1 compliance, endorsing its online payment platform for meeting even the most stringent global security standards.
“At PayPoint, PCI DSS has always been a fundamental part of our business and is deeply baked into our business processes,” said Dan Salmons, Managing Director, PayPoint Mobile and Online. “A decade ago, when we gained our first certification, the world of payments and mobile commerce was much less demanding. With PCI now absolutely essential, we are proud to have achieved compliance for the tenth year running. We feel it shows just how dedicated we are to creating a safe payment environment for our clients and their customers.”
Ben Densham, Head of Compliance at Nettitude, added: “The security criteria for achieving PCI compliance are pretty extensive and continue to get more comprehensive each year. They include a wide range of elements, from data encryption and network security to access to data and firewalls. We’re therefore happy to announce that, for the tenth year in a row, PayPoint’s online payments platform has achieved PCI compliance following a successful audit from the team at Nettitude.”
