DATAMATX, a full-service provider of printed and electronic billing solutions, announced today it has received an “Attestation of Compliance” for the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard 2.0 (PCI DSS). The Attestation of Compliance was awarded as the result of an onsite assessment of DATAMATX’s security standards by the PCI Security Standards Council LLC, the official forum responsible for the development, management, education and awareness of the PCI Security Standards. By meeting the PCI DSS requirements, DATAMATX ensures that its clients’ customer data is protected at the highest level and saves its clients from having to undertake the costly and time consuming process of obtaining PCI DSS compliance themselves.
The PCI DSS is a globally instituted security standard for all merchants and service providers who accept credit card information and is designed to keep customer payment card data secure and prevent payment cardholder data fraud. The standard includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. To meet the rigorous requirements of PCI DSS, DATAMATX demonstrated full compliance with the standard in the payment processing cycle, including the storage, processing, and transmittal of data.
“Increasingly, consumers want to pay their bills electronically. It is incumbent on merchants and others who obtain payment card information to ensure that this sensitive customer data is secure,” said Harry Stephens, president and CEO of DATAMATX. “Because DATAMATX’s state of the art facilities, software and processes meet the stringent requirements of PCI DSS, our clients and their customers can rest assured that customer payment card information is protected.”
