PCI Compliant Managed Hosts

As many of you know, for e-Commerce, whenever and wherever you touch credit cards, you must be PCI Compliant. But where do you start to find hosts, who have created an environment for you, and are willing to work with you. Besides Google, oops, I mean Scroogle, you can look at the list Visa provides.

I’ll be covering the ones mentioned for Managed Hosting in forthcoming reviews.

  1. Currently, there’s not a very long list of enterprise level managed hosting providers who are actually PCI DSS Certified. The long list Visa gives becomes very short when filtering out the hosts that support businesses on a high level. The bigger the company, the more difficult it is to make the changes neccessary to meet these requirements. INetU is set to be considered a PCI DSS Certified Provider by December 2008 or January 2009. This was a must for us because we just host businesses and a majority of them accept some form of credit card payment on their hosted sites. It’s not a simple task, but we’re working with a CSA to ensure everything gets done to Visa/Mastercard’s standards.

    PCI Compliancy has certainly gained traction and I expect to see even more emphasis put on it as more companies around the world start complying.
