London (PRWEB UK) 22 February 2012
NetBenefit, one of the UK’s most experienced managed hosting providers will be enabling m-commerce payment business Mocharge, to meet the stringent requirements of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS). PCI compliance involves meeting 12 requirements, which can be costly for new businesses. By partnering with NetBenefit, Mocharge can take advantage of NetBenefit’s pre-approved services to create a Level 1 PCI compliant solution and reduce the amount of work to be done in-house.
Michael Green, Product Manager at NetBenefit said, “PCI compliance is crucial to Mocharge’s business, but partnering with NetBenefit means the company can profit from our in-depth understanding and experience of PCI standards and count on our 24/7 support and reliable infrastructure. Mocharge, as with all of our clients, will have the peace of mind that their data security and technology is being well managed, whilst they get on with growing their business.”
Mocharge is an independent provider of white-label, turn-key mobile commerce & payment services for payment service providers (PSPs) and acquiring banks. Established two years ago in London, Mocharge is ready to help established payment brands sell secure card payment services to merchants using popular smart phone and tablet devices. Mocharge must therefore meet the same high level of payment card industry DSS (PCI DSS) compliance as the banks themselves.
Hans Johansson, Managing Director at Mocharge explained, “ Our mobile commerce & payment services must be delivered using the highest level of operational excellence, so we decided to partner up with a strong hosting provider, which could deliver on our key requirements: predictable costs, operational resilience, PCI expertise, and banking experience”. He continued, “We chose NetBenefit because they fulfilled these criteria. The company was able to explain and attribute its costs to specific events, it has experience of working with some of the UK’s largest banks and it has a complete understanding of PCI DSS requirements. Compliance is crucial to the success of Mocharge's business, so we want to be in safe and reliable hands”.
