DataBank, a Dallas-based provider of data center colocation, cloud hosting and managed services, has announced the completion of their annual PCI-DSS RoC (Payment Card Industry – Data Security Standard – Report on Compliance), for all its U.S. data center locations. DataBank is headquartered in downtown Dallas, TX and has additional data centers in Dallas, Minneapolis and Kansas City.
PCI-DSS was developed in 2004 by the founding payment brands of MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and JCB International. Because of the nature of the transactions and sensitive data that resides on servers conducting financial transactions, the PCI-DSS is one of the strictest set of audit guidelines conducted in the MTDC (Multi-Tenant Data Center) industry.
DataBank’s PCI-DSS RoC means that businesses processing credit card transactions through deployed servers in any one of the company’s data centers are compliant with the required security standards.
The annual audit process involves an in-depth review of data center operations, logging, monitoring, intrusion detection, security procedures, and staff training. The resulting environment enables DataBank to enforce best practices and security and to augment risk management to further protect client IT assets.
“The PCI RoC framework consists of the highest standards for data-security in our industry,” said Tim Moore, CEO of DataBank. “By extending this rigorous compliance standard into all of our facilities, we ensure DataBank clients are receiving the most secure data center environment available.”
