28 January 2016 – Compass Plus, an international provider of retail banking and electronic payments software to processors and financial institutions, has announced that its processing centre has been recognised as fully compliant with PCI DSS version 3.1.
The certification means that all services offered by Compass Plus Processing Centre are compliant with the latest version of the industry security standards originally founded by the major international payment networks. The audit procedure for PCI DSS compliance, developed by the Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), was performed by Trustwave Ltd, an industry leader in security services and a qualified security assessor.
Achieving certification in PCI DSS v3.1 demonstrates Compass Plus’ commitment to providing secure processing services for its customers, protecting their cardholder data and minimising risk.
“Compass Plus has always taken security very seriously, as one of the first companies to achieve PA DSS across our product suite back in 2009. At the beginning of 2016, we are proud to announce the certification of our processing centre with the latest industry standards, once again staying ahead of the majority in terms of security compliance to ensure our customers have the best possible protection available in the payments space,” said Maria Nottingham, Executive Vice President at Compass Plus.
