Company milestone attaining PCI DSS compliance
Since joining Soha Systems, some 9 months back, it was very evident that the common theme across the organization was TRUST. Trust in leadership to set the course; trust in employees to innovate; and most important, gaining the trust of customers for the Soha Cloud service. This last item, while hopefully the top priority for every “service provider”, is easier said than done.
For those familiar with the product management processes, managing disparate customer requirements can often be challenging; maintaining a set of common security requirements is no different. Requirements can differ between customers and can vary depending on industry, geography, or even internal corporate policies. On the other side of the coin, the same is true for enterprises that are looking to evaluate service providers (particularly those providing security functions). What are service provider’s risk postures? Do they align with current regulatory requirements? How do service provider’s environments affect corporate compliance? Can they be trusted with corporate/customer data?
I’m pleased to announce that Soha has reached a very important milestone in our effort to gain customer trust by achieving Payment Card Industry, Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance. This means the Soha Cloud service been measured against one of the most rigorous security assessments in the industry and has been deemed acceptable for use with payment-card relevant processes. For those unfamiliar, PCI DSS is made up of an association of credit card providers and security experts who publish security standards for parties who store, process, or transmit credit card information.
So what does this mean for customers? It essentially means that customers can leverage their PCI-compliant Soha deployment to support payment card-related applications while maintaining their own PCI compliance. Keeping our customers secure and successful is the number one priority for Soha. We dedicate extensive resources to make sure customer information is secure and we’ve built a company culture that reinforces TRUST at every opportunity.
