PCI Compliant Hosting
A recent analysis of annual PCI compliance assessments on more than 500 large organizations showed that only 11.1% of enterprises maintained their compliance status between assessments. With more than 400 controls and sub-controls that must be implemented correctly as part of PCI DSS 3.0 compliance, many companies often view PCI compliance as a one-off activity, rather than a year-round risk mitigation initiative.
By leveraging compliance-as-a service, organizations can create effective PCI compliance programs based on clearly defined systems, processes and personnel that store, process or access card holder data (CHD). Advance monitoring tools ensure that compliance is proactively maintained on an ongoing basis.
Dynamic, Measurable Compliance Through The Hosting PCI Compliance Dashboard
The HOSTING PCI Compliance Dashboard is a simple, secure and cost-effective means for organizations to implement, monitor and manage compliance activities across multiple departments. Organizations can move away from traditional paper documentation and manual processes to create a comprehensive, electronic audit trail. Automated alerts and email notifications allow them to stay ahead of the compliance curve while proactively addressing any incidents that could put their compliance standing at risk.
Risk Analysis And Gap Mitigation
Organizations are often sidelined by the lack of knowledge and expertise needed to understand which PCI regulations apply to their specific business. Without this operational intelligence, they unknowingly find themselves at risk and out of compliance. This can lead to significant fines, revenue loss and irreparable harm to their brand and reputation.
The HOSTING Compliance Risk Assessment™ provides clarity into an organization’s current compliance posture. Led by HOSTING’s Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), our team of compliant cloud experts assess an organization’s existing cloud environment against PCI DSS regulations including the following areas:
- Perimeter Layer
- Application Layer
- Network Layer
- Physical Layer
- Server Layer
- Administrative Controls
Industry-leading Compliance And Security Expertise
Via monthly, one-on-one consultations, the HOSTING compliance experts provide clear, unbiased insights into every compliance requirement including secure infrastructure, gap analysis, remediation audit, ongoing security and compliance monitoring, and incident and response forensics. They regularly review an organization’s environment to ensure proper actions are being taken to mitigate risk and secure critical applications, sensitive information and regulated data.

PCI Compliant Hosting: Fully Backed by 100% Audit Assurance
PCI SSC standards continue to evolve as merchants and hosting providers actively process, store and transfer credit card information in the cloud. However, a recent analysis of annual PCI compliance assessments undertaken on more than 500 large organizations showed that only one out of ten of enterprises actually maintained their PCI compliance status between assessments.
With more than 400 controls and sub-controls that must be implemented correctly as part of PCI DSS 3.0, many resource-constrained companies view PCI compliance as a one-off activity instead of year-round risk mitigation initiative. It is clear that the need for a strong cloud partner is needed to not just achieve PCI compliant hosting, but also to maintain it.
Led by our in-house, dedicated Chief Information Security Officer (CISO), the PCI HOSTING team helps organizations create and maintain effective PCI compliant hosting programs based on clearly defined systems, processes and personnel.
HOSTING PCI compliance experts scope the environment that needs to be validated by identifying data required to be protected, as well as keeping the spread of card holder data (CHD) across an organization to a minimum. Our controlled, methodical approach enables organizations to reduce their workload, mitigate their risk, control operating costs – and, of course, meet the necessary compliance standards.
As a testament to our expertise in PCI DSS compliance, HOSTING assisted in the development of a recent version of the PCI DSS, focusing on the virtualization and cloud components. We have been recognized as a Level 1 service provider since 2005 and have provided managed PCI compliance solutions for organizations ranging from Level 1 service providers to Level 4 merchants.
