Norwalk, CT (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Ventus Wireless, the industry leader in primary wireless and wireless backup technology, has announced its successful completion of Visa Level 1, PCI DSS recertification. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a comprehensive set of international security requirements which ensure the protection of cardholder data at every step.
“Ventus values our customers’ trust in our ability to keep their data secure and safe,” said Ventus Director of Security, Anthony Simon Charles. He continued, “Working hard to maintain PCI certification year after year demonstrates our firm commitment to network security, industry compliance, and most importantly, our customers.”
The PCI Security Standards Council offers robust and comprehensive standards and supporting materials to enhance payment card data security. These materials include a framework of specifications, tools, measurements and support resources to help organizations ensure the safe handling of cardholder information. Separate from the mandate to comply with PCI DSS is the validation of compliance. Validation identifies vulnerabilities and ensures that appropriate levels of cardholder information security are maintained. Visa has prioritized and defined validation levels based on the volume of transactions and the potential risk and exposure introduced into the payment card industry.
About PCI DSS
The PCI DSS were developed by Visa and the founding payment brands of the PCI Security Standards Council to help facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis. These 12 requirements are the foundation of Visa’s data security compliance program known as the Account Information Security (AIS) Program. This program was formerly known as the Cardholder Information Security Program (CISP) in the U.S.
