London (PRWEB UK) 5 December 2011
NetBenefit (http://www.netbenefit.com), one of the UK’s most experienced managed hosting providers and ExoIS, the developer of industry-leading PCI compliant SaaS solutions, have today announced a PCI compliance services partnership for Level 1 to Level 4 merchants through the ExoIS PeepSafe® offering. NetBenefit is one of a few experts in the secure hosting sector and is supplying the infrastructure layer for PeepSafe in the UK and Europe. PeepSafe is a fully managed, fully customisable, secure portal environment for safe processing of cardholder data with options for encrypted email, fax, voice messages and online storage.
Michael Green, Product Manager at NetBenefit said, “Merchants at this level are choosing to outsource the processing of cardholder data to businesses like NetBenefit, which are experienced in PCI compliance. ExoIS can benefit from our understanding of the standards, as well as data security, access control and network security issues. With NetBenefit support, all of our clients have the peace of mind that their data security and technology is being well managed, whilst they get on with the job of running their businesses.”
Ruth Xovox, Chief Compliance Strategist at ExoIS said, “Online merchants can find the prospect of PCI compliance very daunting, time-consuming and expensive. With the support of NetBenefit, the PeepSafe secure portal environment can now help Level 1 to Level 4 merchants to reduce their PCI DSS footprint and by extension, their initial AND ongoing PCI DSS compliance costs.”
PeepSafe supports multiple existing environments, is scalable, affordable, easy to implement and is almost transparent to the agent or end-user. PeepSafe also means that existing non-compliant business processes can be simply adapted and relocated into the compliant portal environment, while still allowing users to retain essential business practices and functionality.
The ExoIS and NetBenefit partnership is fully complementary with any services already offered by payment gateway or acquirer; it can de-scope all environments including voice, email, fax, storage or large application/ERP systems, including green screen terminals. PeepSafe protects cardholder data wherever it is stored, processed or transmitted and additional PeepSafe options can prohibit cardholder data from accidentally being re-introduced into the corporate network.
NetBenefit is a leading managed hosting provider whose clients include The National Archives, The New Statesman, Polar, The Hospital Club and Kiddicare.
NetBenefit is part of London listed Group NBT, which has over 290 employees worldwide with offices in London, Copenhagen, New York, Nice, Munich, Zurich, and Oslo.
Other Group NBT brands include NetNames, Easily.co.uk, Speednames, Ascio and Envisional. For more information, contact NetBenefit at agencylounge(at)netbenefit(dot)com or call on 0800 328 7477.

PeepSafe allows any organization that accepts credit cards to de-scope entire functions and network segments, including phone calls, e-mails, faxes, databases, applications, workstations and even employees.
