CDNetworks Achieves Third Year of PCI-DSS Certification
Certification by PCI Qualified Security Assessor, Tevora, ensures compliance with data security standards
SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- CDNetworks has achieved PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard) Certification for the third year in a row. PCI DSS Certification by a PCI Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), Tevora, ensures that customers can trust CDNetworks with their sensitive data including payment card information.
"We are proud that our security procedures and infrastructure meet the standards of PCI-DSS," said Jeff Kim, President & COO, CDNetworks. "It's important to state the difference between being PCI compliant and being PCI-DSS Certified by a PCI QSA. The first could mean just doing a self assessment test; the latter is a rigorous evaluation by a testing agent, qualified by the PCI Council to assess compliance with the PCI DSS standard."
The PCI security standard dictates a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security. It was developed by the founding members of the PCI Security Standards Council, including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa Inc., to help facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis.
CDNetworks' Dynamic Acceleration solutions adhere to the requirements of the PCI standards regarding system- and application-level policies that include log data centralization, monitoring, and reporting for security and audit purposes.
"As a PCI DSS Certified solution, CDNetworks has met the comprehensive data security standards set by the PCI Security Council," said Ray Zadjmool, President of PCI QSA Company, Tevora. "Only companies approved by the PCI Security Council, such as Tevora, can provide testing and certification."
