PCI Compliance

In October 2008, all major credit card issuers, including VISA, MasterCard, American Express, etc., jointly developed the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) which outlines best practices for credit card data that is stored, processed, and/or transmitted. Alpha Technology Solutions commends the joint decision as this supersedes the requirements that were previously developed by VISA Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) and MasterCard Site Data Protection (SDP).

Although well versed in both CISP and SDP, Alpha Technology Solutions currently provides services in all four levels of PCI compliance. By mid November 2008, all our credit card honoring clients were migrated to full PCI compliance.

Because encryption is a vital part of PCI compliance, Alpha Technology Solutions provides the knowhow, design and tools to setup end-to-end encryption securing transmission of sensitive data. Whether being sent to third-party networks for continuous data replication or electronic archival we apply the same amount of security measure as data must be secured when traveling to offsite storage and processing sites.

Our solutions make it easy to protect a single link or your entire infrastructure eliminating the complexity of encrypting networks that are both wired and wireless. Our PCI compliance specialists are waiting to tell you just how easy it can be to comply with PCI Data Security Standard.
