Reliability and performance are the foundation for a successful online infrastructure and we're pleased to be able to provide a Tier 1 PCI environment for DotCom Your Event
Toronto, ON (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
Fusepoint Managed Services, a leading provider of outsourced IT services and infrastructure, today announced it has been selected by DotCom Your Event Inc. to manage and host the company's customizable online event registration solutions across North America.
Growing in tandem with an upswing in online credit card transactions and DotCom's site traffic was the company's need for a secure and scalable solution that would protect private data against unmitigated risk. In addition, having previously worked with a solution provider in the U.S., DotCom experienced frequent service issues and was falling short of its goal to ensure 24x7 availability of its mission-critical applications.
Increase demands from credit card companies, such as Visa, MasterCard, and American Express, for compliance with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) also placed additional pressure on Software as a Service provider like DotCom, to demonstrate low-risk audit results. Sticking to its core business strength in custom online event registration and development, DotCom chose to outsource its IT infrastructure to Fusepoint.
"With online transactions on the rise, protecting our client's private data from malicious activity is critical and we must meet the demands of credit card companies for Tier I PCI compliance," said Mark Turner, CEO, DotCom Your Event. " Fusepoint was the only provider in Canada that could meet the stringent standards we required to get us on the path to better security, availability, and compliance."
The Fusepoint hosting environment provides DotCom with access to higher-end technology that delivers data at three times the speed of the company's previous solution; scalability for rapid growth as its customer base increases; and a competitive advantage over other web registration companies with regards to security and PCI audit compliance standards.
"Reliability and performance are the foundation for a successful online infrastructure and we're pleased to be able to provide a Tier 1 PCI environment for DotCom Your Event," said George Kerns, President and CEO, Fusepoint Managed Services. "Increasingly, online companies like DotCom are outsourcing critical IT solutions to create highly stable and scalable environments so they can focus on exceeding the demands of a growing customer base."
Fusepoint's certified technical support team will manage critical elements of the DotCom data environment and provide services including enhanced colocation, intrusion detection, firewall security, bandwidth, data back-up, and end-to-end monitoring and reporting.
