Ratingen, Germany, August 19, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- German payment service provider easycash GmbH has been certified for its compliance with the leading European Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for its web-based payment software “Paymaster”.
“Paymaster“ guarantees top security in handling credit card data.
By meeting the PCI DSS standard, easycash offers the greatest level of security in the area of e-payments. The highest safety criteria must be met when handling sensitive data that are collected when conducting credit card transactions. PCI DSS licensing covers technical and organisational security when processing and transferring card data.
Online shop customers using Paymaster can pay by direct debit or credit card. The easycash online payment software Paymaster guarantees maximum security and fulfils the strict requirements of the PCI Security Standards Council. This is certified annually by accredited auditors.
“With the commitment to have these high standards supervised by accredited auditors from leading international companies, easycash is setting the tone on the web and in e-commerce”, says Marcus W. Mosen, CEO of the easycash Holding Gmbh in Ratingen, Germany. “The PCI DSS certification is one data security measure by which we can strengthen our position as a national and leading international service provider in the area of cashless systems.“
easycash guarantees top security: SSL communication and back-ups by means of replicated data in two data processing centres.
The Paymaster system is hosted centrally. Transaction data from the relevant online shop is transferred from the customer’s server to two data processing centres, whereby easycash will ensure data back-up. All data will be stored separately in two unconnected data processing centres, as with POS payments through the easycash network. In the event of a system going down in one of the data processing centres, easycash’s customers will still be guaranteed complete access to data. Data transfer is encrypted using the leading SSL security standard (Secure Socket Layer Standard).
Successful market expansion
“We are very satisfied with the completely positive reaction of the market to easycash’s e-payment system Paymaster“, Mosen emphasised. “We look upon the expansion of our market share on the web as a natural development of our successful portfolio in the field of POS transactions. On the way to becoming a full-service provider for card-based payments at a national and international level, the Paymaster product has already proved to be a further milestone”.
