HOLLYWOOD, Florida, September 13, 2016—WHOA.com, a global leader in secure cloud services, compliance and disaster recovery, announced today that its data centers and cloud infrastructure have been validated for PCI DSS 3.1 compliance. The company recently underwent a rigorous audit by an independent Quality Security Assessor (QSA) to ensure that it meets the best practices and security controls needed to keep credit card data safe and secure during transit, processing, and storage.
Being PCI DSS-compliant ensures WHOA.com customers that appropriate safeguards are in place for network security, firewall defense, and process & coding controls so critical customer cardholder data remains protected and uncompromised.
As a company on the cutting-edge of security, this certification enables WHOA to help organizations protect and harden their networks from advanced threats.
“WHOA is dedicated to providing the best security, availability, and resiliency to all of our clients,” said Tim Varma, WHOA’s Chief Operating Officer. “The successful completion of PCI DSS is yet another demonstration of our commitment to providing independent compliance verification of our Cloud platform for customers with sensitive workloads.”
The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS)—endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc.—requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit customer payment card data to adopt information security controls and processes to ensure data integrity.
WHOA.com will continue to help customers manage data security risks on the WHOA.com Secure Cloud, evaluate the security of their systems that store payment account data, and assist them in achieving compliance with PCI DSS.
