Jan 28, 2008 (10:01 AM EST)
NORCROSS, Ga. and LONDON, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Postilion, a leading global provider of integrated solutions for self-service banking and payment processing and a division of S1 Corporation , today announced that the Postilion Data Center in Norcross, Georgia, has received certification of compliance with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). The PCI DSS, officially announced in January 2005, is a global standard promoted by the payment card associations to safeguard cardholder information.
The PCI DSS, a multi-faceted security standard, includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design, and other critical protective measures. Card associations maintain and enforce compliance programs for member organizations that store, process, or transmit cardholder data. This comprehensive standard is intended to help organizations, such as acquirers and processors, proactively protect customer account data and limit the ability to compromise payment systems.
Dean Jordaan, Postilion's Senior Vice President of Global Product Strategy, commented, "Not only have Postilion solutions been validated by Visa as compliant with payment application best practices (PABP), but we also host these solutions in a PCI DSS compliant data center. As the cost of running security compliant IT operations increases, our customers look to our hosted services to relieve a significant pain point in their businesses."
