PCI-Assessed with Bank Attestations of Card Security

Under the PCI DSS, card data needs 12 main requirements with 281 subset ones. CloudDefense is Bank and PCI attested for this.

PCI DSS stands for ‘Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard.’ Backed by all the major payment processing and credit card companies, the cybersecurity standard aims to protect credit and debit card numbers.

Strong and Assessed Cyber-Security is a Must for  PCI DSS Compliance
PCI-DSS penalties are built into a contract between payment processors/vendors. Violation penalties include losing card processing rights. This can occur without criminal court standards of evidence.

To avoid PCI DSS-related impacts from low third-party risk management (TPRM), we need well-audited and informed AppSec solutions. With CloudDefense, confidently cover critical risks at-a-glance:
