Centershift, Inc., a provider of self storage management software solutions, announced today that it has successfully achieved Level 1 Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) certification for Service Providers. Centershift is the only management software service provider in the self storage industry to achieve this distinguished status.
Centershift’s PCI-DSS Compliance affirms that Centershift Store solutions provide for consistent, secure and reliable applications that meet the highest standards of controls, security, and compliance for credit card data.
“Our PCI Compliance provides our clients with the assurance that we take our overall security and protection of our clients tenant’s credit card information very seriously” stated Terry Bagley, President and CEO of Centershift. “We have made significant investments in compliance, hardware and software solutions to meet the rigorous standards of PCI Compliance. Our clients continue to have the benefit of using a software solution that is PCI-DSS Compliant”.
“This success is a result of significant efforts by our Operations and Compliance teams to meet PCI Standards” emphasized Philip Twede, Vice President of Finance and Administration for Centershift.
“Anyone looking at a software vendor for self storage should ask if that vendor stores credit card data, if they do, they have to be PCI-DSS compliant - no other standard applies.” Stated Brandon Wright, Manager of Compliance for Centershift.
Centershift continues to go above and beyond what is required to assure our clients that we are providing the most secure, robust and reliable infrastructure in the self storage industry.
The PCI Standard is the result of a collaborative effort of the PCI Security Standards Council whose members include American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International. The council developed the Standard as an efficient approach to safeguarding sensitive data, including customers’ credit card, account and transaction data, and for the prevention of credit card fraud, hacking and various other security concerns. PA-DSS was developed for those that do not store cardholder Data, but are connected to the internet.
