ZZ Servers Achieves PCI DSS 3.2 Level 1 Service Provider Certification

For the fifth consecutive year IT solutions firm ZZ Servers has earned Level 1 Service Provider compliance through the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) version 3.2. Aimed at keeping credit card data secure, the credit card companies American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard and Visa administer the standards through the PCI (Payment Card Industry) Security Standards Council.

As a Level 1 compliant service provider, ZZ Servers has been validated that their data-center, PCI shared hosting and managed services used by customers to store, process or transmit card holder data are secure and meet the controls required by PCI. But maintaining PCI compliance isn't just about securing their own credit card systems, says ZZ Servers Co-Founder and Managing Partner David M. Zendzian, it's also about demonstrating for its customers the company's ability to create and manage a PCI compliant environment that will meet the security standards.

"We've built a company based on being audited for PCI compliance," says Zendzian. "It's easy to show the relationship between our policies and their implementation."

The key to successfully achieving and maintaining PCI compliance, Zendzian says, is having daily processes in place that continually assure the company is meeting PCI DSS. "Whether an auditor came in six weeks or six months, we do everything everyday – all the scans, the change logs, all the things we do are documented in a repeatable process so we can easily validate our data security," he says.

That level of transparency is how ZZ Servers approaches building server and business hosting environments for its clients. ZZ Servers' data security and PCI compliant solutions – whether for a Level 1 merchant doing more than 6 million online transactions a year or a Level 4 business with less than 20,000 online transactions a year – include a built in auditable process that provides evidence that the right controls and pieces are in place.

"What we do for ourselves is what we do for our customer," Zendzian says. "It doesn't matter what size your business is, it's one set of procedures that you do day in and day out that ensures your customers' data is secure."
