Portland, ME, United States, 2011/07/27 - OrderLogix™, the leading provider of order management solutions for direct response and e-commerce merchants, today announced that it has received it’s annual renewal certification of Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS).
PCI-DSS is the most rigorous industry-recognized payment-card security standard available globally. OrderLogix adheres to rigorous security standards, which include maintaining the proper security policies, procedures, and regulations to reduce credit card theft and fraud.
“Data protection and secure payment solutions has always been a top priority at OrderLogix for more than 14 years. Our clients trust us with their customers’ most vulnerable data, their personal credit card information,” said Sotero Giftos, President of OrderLogix. Keeping that data secure is serious business for this industry leader in order management solutions. “We have always worked hard to insure data security because our clients and their customers need to know that their data is safe and secure with us,” Giftos continued.
A PCI certified order management software solution will soon be required by all merchant account providers to obtain a merchant account for processing customer payments. Compliance with PCI DSS version 2.0 will become mandatory after January 1, 2012 according to the PCI Security Standards Council.
Businesses don’t need to wait to protect their customers’ data. OrderLogix’s order management solution makes it easy for merchants to adhere to rigorous security stands, regardless of their merchant account providers, when they use OrderLogix’s affordable hosted services.
About PCI DSS
PCI DSS originally began as five different programs: Visa Card Information Security Program, MasterCard Site Data Protection, American Express Data Security Operating Policy, Discover Information and Compliance, and the JCB Data Security Program. Each company’s intentions were roughly similar: to create an additional level of protection for card issuers by ensuring that merchants meet minimum levels of security when they store, process and transmit cardholder data. The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) was formed, and on 15 December 2004, these companies aligned their individual policies and released the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS), developed by the founding payment brands of the PCI Security Standards Council, helps facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally. Intended to help organizations proactively protect customer account data, the PCI DSS is a multifaceted security standard that includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures.
