SOA Software, an API and SOA management tools provider, announced that its API Management solution and cloud offering have been validated for compliance with version 2.0 of the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). SOA Software recently underwent a series of audits by an independent Quality Security Assessor (QSA) to ensure that it met best practices and security controls needed to keep sensitive data secure during transit, processing and storage.
PCI DSS is a proprietary information security standard for organizations that handle cardholder information for the major debit, credit, prepaid, e-purse, ATM and POS cards.
"Validation of our PCI DSS compliance ensures that our API Management customers can leverage our enterprise-class cloud platform to ensure the security and availability of their applications and data, as well as help meet their own requirements for PCI compliance in their API Programs," said Alistair Farquharson, CTO of SOA Software.
SOA Software is now an 'Approved Service Provider' for major credit card brands. As part of its standard security measures, the SOA Software PCI-Compliant Cloud employs multi-layer protection and data access limitations. It also monitors, defends against and mitigates cyber assaults and threats. Features include antivirus management, vulnerability scanning, a secure audit trail and resource tracking. Technical support is also available from SOA staff.
