Cloud Software Passes Rigorous Updating Path for Payment Card Security Standards
PCI LONDON, LONDON UK – 22 JANUARY, 2015 – SOA Software, an API Management, API Security, and Cloud Integration leader that helps businesses accelerate their digital transformation by securely extending their reach across multiple channels, announced that its API Management solution and cloud offering have been validated for compliance with version 3.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Last year, SOA Software attained compliance with PCI DSS 2.0. To attain validation again, the company underwent a series of rigorous audits by an independent Quality Security Assessor (QSA) to ensure that it met best practices and security controls needed to keep sensitive data secure during transit, processing and storage.
“Going through the validation process for PCI DSS 3.0 compliance keeps us at the forefront of cloud-based providers who can handle credit card transactions that involve APIs and cloud integration,” said Alistair Farquharson, CTO of SOA Software. “We invested in this next round of compliance as part of our ongoing commitment to maintaining a well-governed, high-quality IT service environment.”
SOA Software is now recognized as an approved Level 2 Service Provider for major credit card brands with the latest version of PCC DSS. PCC DSS 3.0 includes expanded compliance requirements in areas such as software development reviews and testing procedures. As part of its standard security measures, the SOA Software PCI-Compliant Cloud employs multi-layer protection and data access limitations. It also monitors, defends against and mitigates cyber assaults and threats. Features include antivirus management, vulnerability scanning, a secure audit trail and resource tracking along with round-the-clock technical support by comprehensively trained SOA Software staff to maximize uptime and availability and enhance security.
PCI DSS is a proprietary information security standard for organizations that handle cardholder information for the major debit, credit, prepaid, e-purse, ATM and POS cards. SOA Software’s continuing engagement with PCI DSS certifications allows it to advise customers on the most appropriate security best practices, irrespective of their industry. SOA Software’s counsel can help ensure that APIs are built on a compliant platform and extended in a compliant fashion, required tasks are dealt with by the most appropriate parties and nothing gets overlooked as enterprises roll out their APIs.
