Hatboro, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) November 06, 2014
Constellation Payments, a leading gateway provider for credit card and ACH transaction processing for software companies, direct sales and marketing organizations, and merchants, today announced that it has been re-validated as a Level One PCI-compliant Service Provider under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Level One is the most rigorous industry-recognized payment card security standard available.
“Data security is the backbone of our business,” said Steven Pinado, CEO of Constellation Payments. “It’s critical for our merchants to know that we are committed to providing the most secure environment to protect their customers’ data.”
All merchants and service providers that process, store and transmit credit card information are required to comply with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) requirements to protect cardholder data and prevent theft. Compliance requirements are divided into three levels based on transaction volume. Level One carries the most stringent certification requirements.
As a payment processing provider, Constellation Payments had to demonstrate compliance through a comprehensive on-site audit of the company’s headquarters and an offsite audit of its production environment hosted by Xand.
The audit includes recurring network security scans, system penetration testing, and a full review of the company’s systems, processes, and documented policies and procedures.
Trustwave, the leading provider of on-demand security and payment card industry compliance, and a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) registered with the PCI Security Standards Council, performed the PCI-DSS review and awarded Level One PCI compliance to Constellation Payments.
