iomart, a managed cloud hosting and security service provider from the UK, has achieved Level 1 Payments Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) certification. iomart provides public, private and hybrid cloud solutions to a wide range of businesses and organizations that deal with sensitive cardholder data and where PCI DSS compliance is critical to their operations.
Compliance with PCI DSS Level 1 provides independent verification from a Qualified Security Assured Assessor that iomart’s proprietary secured cloud hosting services and data centers meet the highest levels of security and compliance for the processing, storage and transmission of cardholder data. iomart’s Level 1 certification would help its customers towards achieving their own PCI DSS compliance.
“Achieving the highest level of PCI DSS certification provides our customers with the reassurance that the security and governance of their data is our top priority,” said Reece Donovan, CEO of iomart. “They can focus on delivering their services knowing that we have got everything in place to keep their card payment data safe.”
Level 1 Certification
The Level 1 certification confirms that iomart’s private and shared hosting services and UK data centers have been verified to secure cardholder data for customers dealing with more than 300,000 card transactions a year. Level 1 is the most stringent of the PCI DSS levels and shows that iomart’s systems engineers maintain the highest security standards.
To achieve Level 1 certification, iomart underwent a thorough on-site audit by a Qualified Security Assessor from accredited security partner One Compliance.
“Our Level 1 PCI DSS certification is the result of a substantial team effort right across our business,” said Steve Flockhart, Compliance Manager for iomart. “We are proud of our compliance with the highest standards for the cloud computing industry and our continued commitment to data integrity and security on behalf of our customers.”
iomart is certified for ISO 27001, ISO 20000, ISO 9001, ISO 23001, ISO 14001, ISO 50001 and Cyber Essentials. The company is also approved as a supplier to the G-Cloud 12 and Digital Outcomes & Specialists 5 procurement frameworks by the Crown Commercial Service.
