Simplified PCI DSS Compliance
Our client outsources their system support and hosting of its Payment Service to The Bunker. This service provides online authorisation and settlement functions to organisations accepting payment cards for purchase of goods and services.
In a typical configuration, our client’s software communicates with a merchant’s point of sale system and the card reader hardware to accept payment. The Payment System also processes fuel cards, electronic gift cards, (ETU, DCC) and other transaction types.
Ensuring PCI DSS Compliance, security and high availability are fundamental requirements.
The Bunker’s 12 point PCI DSS accreditation made them an obvious choice to partner with. The Partnership has helped our client with its QSA process and reduced the scope of its PCI DSS compliance.
By outsourcing to The Bunker, our client can concentrate on delivering high quality business services to its customers. The partnership allows our client to be more flexible in offering new business services to its customers and more agile in its continuously evolving marketplace.
