Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) October 02, 2012
3Cinteractive, (3Ci) a leading cloud-based mobile software company, announced it has achieved certification of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) 2.0 as a Level 1 Service Provider, which is the most rigorous industry recognized payment card security standard available.
This certification is part of a series of innovation enhancements for 3Ci’s flagship, cloud-based, mobile platform – Switchblade™ – as the company prepares for the platform’s next generation software release early next year. This certification also establishes Switchblade as one of the only mobile platforms to meet Payment Card Industry Data Security Specification (PCI DSS). To achieve PCI certification, 3Ci went through an arduous third-party review of its security policies and procedures as well as the platform’s physical security environment.
Some of the world’s largest companies rely on the Switchblade platform to deploy mobile applications that better engage their customers and drive commerce and payment transactions. 3Ci understands the tremendous value of these transactions and continues to stay laser-focused on ensuring the privacy and security of its platform. This year alone 3Ci will process almost a million mobile commerce and payment transactions through Switchblade driving nearly $1 billion in revenue for its clients. Those figures will keep increasing rapidly as businesses continue to move more “high-value” transactions to the mobile device.
"The PCI certification further exemplifies 3Cinteractive’s steadfast commitment to providing our enterprise clients with the most secure mobile platform in the industry,” said John Ceraolo, Chief Security Officer at 3Cinteractive. “Our clients demand that the sensitive financial data of their customers is being handled by a provider who has been thoroughly assessed against this well known standard."
Ceraolo also added, “There is a lot of focus on the security of mobile devices, as there should be. However, it's also critical for a company to know that their mobile solutions provider is treating their consumer’s data with the utmost care and security. We continue to invest in procedures, policies and controls to ensure the safeguarding of our clients’ and their customers’ data.”
