PCI Compliance

NetSource is PCI Compliant for Secure Hosting

Today, all ecommerce merchants are required to use a PCI-DSS compliant web host for their ecommerce applications. PCI-DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard and is required by all the major credit card companies. NetSource is a PCI compliant host. As a PCI compliant service provider, NetSource qualifies using the SAQ-D questionnaire, the most difficult assessment for PCI compliance. NetSource can provide our certification of compliance to any customer that requests it to prove they are using a PCI compliant host. NetSource certifies every 90 days. Do NOT host your ecommerce application with any provider that can't produce the compliance certificate.

With NetSource, you can be sure that you are getting the highest level of security to host your ecommerce system or web application. Many merchants, however, are confused by the PCI requirements. With over 14 years of experience with ecommerce applications, NetSource has the experience to help you understand these difficult requirements.

It is important for merchants to note that using PCI compliant service providers for hosting, credit card processing, and payment gateways is just one requirement of the PCI standard. Merchants are required to meet other requirements, based on certain criteria, to avoid security problems and possible fines from the credit card companies. Those requirements can range from being simple to extremely difficult to meet. Do not assume that you are compliant even when hosting in a PCI compliant data center. NetSource can advise you about the best approaches for merchants to get and stay compliant, appropriate for your business.
