Provider of premium eCommerce hosting services, Nexcess, announced that its sustained PCI-compliant web hosting environment will become PCI certified in the near future. This relates directly to the ability of an eCommerce web site to accept credit card payments.
To provide PCI certified web hosting, organizations must meet 12 distinct requirements for compliance, which should then be certified and approved by a third party. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) is a governing standard for information security as it relates to the handling of consumer cardholder information for payments made using major credit, debit, prepaid, ATM, and POS cards.
“Anyone can say they are ‘PCI Compliant’, but very few folks take the next step to have this independently audited,” commented Nexcess President and CEO, Chris Wells. “We feel that this certification falls right in line with Nexcess’ foundation of providing our clients with unparalleled service and support. Now, more than ever, people want to know that their sensitive information is safe when they’re doing business online. We want to provide our valued clients with that added level of confidence and security.”
The Magento SIP’s provided by Nexcess offer secure, high performance and scalable hosting solutions for Magento eCommerce platforms. BrightLine conducted the Nexcess PCI DS audit, a trusted third party which also handled the company’s Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) No 16 audit earlier in the year.
Nexcess is based out of Ann Arbor, Michigan and was founded in 2000. It has data centers in Dearborn and Southfield, Michigan. The company offers a variety of hosting services ranging from entry level packages to custom configurations for eCommerce businesses.
