Keep your customers cards safe

PCI DSS stands for Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard. It is a set of standards set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council to enforce the protection of card payment information. Compliance with these standards is mandatory for all entities that process credit or debit card information.

Cloud Computer PCI Compliance Benefits

Administrative Safeguards

V2 Cloud admin dashboard controls ensure you always have strong administrative safeguards across your cloud network. Admins can enforce PCI compliance measures like password control, access permissions, and others.

Physical Safeguards

Since our desktops live in the cloud, physical breaches are virtually non-existent. Strong passwords and enforced access control will ensure all endpoints are secure.

Transmission Security

Moving data to or from a virtual machine does not require physical cables running through a router in your office. As such, you can easily enforce network and transmission security using PCI compliance software like a firewall or a secure VPN.

Access Controls

Meeting PCI compliance Objective 4 is made easier through cloud computers. You can easily enforce access controls across your entire cloud network from one centralized command center.

Audit Controls

Maintaining PCI compliance requires ongoing audits. Auditing cloud desktops is easy because they only have one access point – through the login window. As a virtualized endpoint, it is also easy to monitor all endpoint parameters for enhanced network security.

Integrity Controls

Data integrity is a crucial requirement for PCI compliance. V2 Cloud computers make it easy to secure data in the cloud by enforceable data security controls. You can also enhance data security through installed PCI compliance software.
