Finding a PCI Compliant Hosting Provider
Do you own a business or e-commerce website that processes credit card transactions on a regular basis? If so, finding a PCI compliant hosting provider is of the utmost importance to protect your business against the ever increasing number of cyber attacks and security breaches that businesses face.
* PCI DSS Sets the Security Standards
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a set of required standards that were designed to make sure that all companies that handle any type of credit card information or consumer data maintain a safe, secure environment.
But becoming PCI compliant is more than just following the PCI DSS. It contains a multifaceted set of security standards, which covers everything from configuration and management of your computers and devices to how well your staff is managed and trained.
One of the best ways to protect your business's reputation and the privacy of your customers’ information is without a doubt finding a PCI compliant hosting provider that can safely and securely host your business's website.
* What to Look For in a PCI Compliant Hosting Provider
When looking for a compliant hosting provider, you need to make sure that provider has the tools and services necessary that will continually safeguard your business against attacks and keep you up-to-date with PCI DSS.
Security services include security scans, which scan your business's complete payment-processing infrastructure for security vulnerabilities. These scans need to take place at least once every 90 days, but the more scans done, the better.
If you utilize a dedicated PCI compliant hosting provider, you can rest easy knowing that your website, credit card payment processing data and consumer data is 100 percent secure. This is because your site will have its own dedicated server and administrators who work with your hosting provider will be able to give you the time and service you require to make sure your business runs smoothly.
Look for a hosting provider that will give you the option of having your site hosted on a dedicated PCI compliant server. While shared servers may simply "get the job done," you don't just want to do the bare minimum. PCI is about helping your business protect your customers, so the bare minimum just won't cut it. You need to focus on customer safety for less chance of danger and better business practices.
