PCI Compliance - The credit card industry's standard for security
PCI compliance is a must for any organization that wants to accept credit card payments online. Our security is comprehensive enough to be certified as PCI compliant. Our site and servers are scanned and audited daily to insure this compliance.
SSL Encryption of Data
We employ appropriate site security measures to protect the loss, misuse and alteration of information under our control. For our web site, we employ 256-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input, as an additional security measure. Encryption is the process of transforming data into a coded form that only we can read. That means your details are safe before they even leave your computer or web browser.
Data Center Security
All hardware and services are located in a secure world-class data center (an ISO 9001:2000-certified provider) that is monitored onsite 24x7x365. Multiple security checkpoints must be cleared to gain access to the data center. Biometric handscanners and key cards track and provide access to all areas of the data center providing us with N+3 (Necessary + 3) onsite security. Closed-circuit television cameras and key cards record all data center activity. Data center network infrastructure provides multiple security layers to safeguard against unauthorized access.
