Softgate Systems, a leading provider of retail bill payment solutions, today announced that it has achieved PCI Compliance Level 1 of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) , the most rigorous industry-recognized payment-card security standard available.

To become PCI DSS-validated, Softgate underwent a comprehensive third-party examination of its policies, procedures, and technical systems by a Quality Security Assessor to ensure that it meets best practices and security controls needed to keep credit card data safe and secure.
“Data protection has always been a priority for Softgate Systems and it is essential that we offer the most secure environment for our customer’s personal information,” said Alex Peterhans, CTO, Softgate Systems. “Achieving PCI compliance demonstrates our ongoing commitment and investment in providing one of the most secure payment processing platforms in the industry.”
