Overview of PCI DSS
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) was developed by the major credit card companies to assist merchants in preventing credit card fraud and to improve security around processing and storing credit card details.
PCI DSS compliance is an important standard for any organisation storing, processing or transmitting credit card data to have and maintain. It ensures that sensitive customer data and the security of all systems that have access to this sensitive information is maintained and secured at all times.
eWAY and PCI DSS
As a Level 1 service provider eWAY is required to remain PCI DSS compliant at all times, undertaking yearly audits and quarterly network scans from an external Qualified Security Assessor to ensure compliance is maintained.
eCommerce merchants whose systems store, process or transmit credit card data must be PCI DSS compliant depending on the number of eCommerce transactions processed annually. The processes eWAY goes through to maintain compliance include a Self-Assessment Questionnaire, an External Vulnerability Assessment and an onsite review by an external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA).
eWAY values its merchants sensitive customer data and strives to ensure that it always remains up to date for any relevant standards. PCI DSS compliancy is extremely important for any payment gateway and eWAY provides all merchants and their customers with the confidence they need to shop safely online.
eWAY utilises McAfeeSecure for its quarterly vulnerability scans and Securus Global to undertake its yearly audit.
