k-eCommerce is pleased to announce that we have met the new requirements in full and our certification as a PCI DSS 3.2 Level 1 Service Provider was re-validated for 2018. This means that you and your customers can rest assured that all credit card data is handled with the absolute highest degree of security when doing business with any k-eCommerce web store.
Here’s what you need to know.
What Is PCI DSS?
To eliminate the risks of data theft and identity fraud, the major credit card companies established a set of requirements and guidelines to ensure the security of credit card holders online. Known as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), these guidelines regulate every aspect of cardholder security, from software design and network architecture to workplace policies for offices housing servers that handle transactions.
The PCI DSS is updated every year to stay ahead of the latest threats, which is why k-eCommerce re-validates our certification annually to ensure maximum protection for your customers’ data at all times.
What’s New in 2018?
TLS 1.2 Update: For improved security, all payment gateways will be updating to version 1.2 of the TLS security protocol. We have made all the required modifications to our PCI Environment. The changes will take effect automatically and require no action on your part. However, older versions of certain Internet browsers are not supported by TLS 1.2. You can get the list of minimum version requirements here.
Test Payment Sandbox URL: You may now process test payments for certain payment gateways using a sandbox environment. (Note that this feature is not available for all payment gateways.)
Payment Profiles Support: Payment profiles have been added for the CyberSource and Beanstream payment gateways.
Our PCI Environment guarantees the protection of your customers’ credit card data, but if you would like to tighten your company’s security even further, familiarize yourself with the latest PCI DSS protocols and make sure your business is fully compliant.
And we fully encourage it! Your PCI-compliant web store business, coupled with our certified PCI Environment, is the ultimate combination for preventing cybercrime and maximizing customer security.
