Achieving PCI Compliance with The Evolve IP Compliance Cloud
The Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) created the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) as a worldwide information security standard for protecting credit card data, and agreed to incorporate the PCI DSS as part of the technical requirements for each of their data security compliance programs. The PCI DSS also applies to all other covered entities that store, process, or transmit cardholder data and/or sensitive authentication data, or provide services to those covered entities, since they provide services that control or could impact the security of cardholder data.
Evolve IP is a nationally recognized cloud-based technology provider that designs, hosts, manages and supports enterprise-class integrated hosted technology solutions. These technology solutions can be managed services or hosted environments for customers directly involved in PCI services; therefore, Evolve IP is considered a service provider and needs to have a secure and certified environment that protects these PCI customers. In addition, shared hosting providers (or those providing PCI services for hosted PCI environments) are required to meet additional specific controls for their service environments.
Evolve IP engaged an approved PCI QSA and is now certified as a Level 1 PCI Service Provider in all 12 PCI version 3.1 categories, and has PCI offerings of Managed Firewall, Managed Virtual Data Center (VDC), Customer Managed Virtual Data Center, Co- Location, Hosted Private Branch Exchange (PBX), Backup as a Service, and Hosted Exchange.
