Burden Of PCI Compliance Lifted By MPP Global Cloud Payment Services

Posted by MPP Global on Wednesday, 12 January 2011

MPP Global’s blue chip clients inherit the highest level of compulsory PCI compliance, after the company achieved the top tier of the tough security standard.

The leading advanced eCommerce service provider is Level 1 compliant to the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) which enable its customers to drastically reduce the overheads of becoming compliant themselves.

By leveraging MPP Global’s cloud-based payment systems, its clients also automatically meet many of the compulsory standards required by the leading card schemes Visa and MasterCard.

The advanced eCommerce service provider completes rigorous annual assessments with qualified security assessors who look at network security, firewall and anti-virus configuration, storage and encryption of data, data access, maintaining security policies and testing systems.

Chris Cheney, MPP Global’s Chief Technology Officer, said: “At MPP Global, we are PCI-DSS compliant so our clients remove many of the rigorous burdens which compliance brings whilst benefitting from constant security upgrades as well as the very latest in secure online payment platforms.

“By choosing our advanced eCommerce services our clients can provide the highest levels of security and protection for processing cardholder data without having to invest further to meet compliance standards themselves.

“Meeting the PCI-DSS is not an option, it’s compulsory. Failure to meet the tough standards when dealing with credit card processing can lead to hefty fines, legal action, unpleasant forensic investigations, insurance claims and possible irreparable reputational damage.”

MPP Global’s PCI-DSS compliance of its cloud-based secure online payment platform allows companies to have full online security protection without investing large outlays on servers and other operational costs.

Chris added: “Our cloud-based payment platforms are particularly popular in the media industry as companies can easily integrate our payments technology and begin processing one-off payments, subscriptions and micropayments swiftly and securely, whether it be over the Internet, Mobile, Call Centre or even Connected-TV.

“eCommerce services continue to evolve and PCI-DSS compliance ensures companies keep pace with these changes and online payment platforms continue to be safe and secure 24/7.”

By achieving Level 1 PCI-DSS, MPP Global can help companies secure credit card processing against cybercrime, identify theft, ghost attacks, viruses and internet shutdowns.
