Callpay, a leading payment solutions provider, today announced that it has become the first Service Provider in Africa to achieve PCI DSS v3.2 compliance. The company recently underwent another rigorous audit by an independent Quality Security Assessor (QSA) to ensure that it meets the best practices and security controls needed to keep card data safe and secure from capture and transmit to processing.
Callpay provides a unique range of innovative payment technologies, from its patent pending cloud call centre solutions, Bank Transfer Switch including its mPOS and mPAY Applications. Being a Level 1 PCI DSS compliant Service Provider ensure Callpay’s partners and merchants that appropriate safeguards are in place for network security, firewall defence, process and coding controls, so that customer’s cardholder data remains protected and uncompromised.
“Callpay is on the cutting edge of payment innovation. It is important that we exceed the requirements put in place for our clients from any regulatory agency or standards body,” said Callpay CEO Jean-Pierre van der Spuy. “The successful completion of our yearly PCI DSS compliance and audits is yet another demonstration of our commitment to providing secure and leading payment solutions.”
The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) endorsed by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, Mastercard Worlwide and Visa Inc. requires merchants and service providers that store, process or transmit payment card data to adopt information security controls and processes to ensure data integrity.
Callpay also made headlines in 2015 when it became the first company globally to achieve PCI DSS v3.1 compliance. Callpay has committed itself to develop and maintain innovative payment offerings, evaluate the security of their systems and assist its partners and merchants in achieving compliance with PCI DSS.
