CWCS Awarded PCI DSS Level 1 Service Provider Status – PCI Compliant Hosting

When it comes to data protection and specifically protection of cardholder data, you can never be too careful or too thorough in your processes, controls and overall security levels. CWCS Managed Hosting ensures on-going auditing of their security levels and has been awarded PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) Level 1 Service Provider status following a recent audit.

The auditors confirmed, “Ultima Risk Management ltd (URM) conducted an onsite audit of CompuWeb Communications Services Ltd (CWCS) and have found sufficient evidence and controls to find it compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) v3.1 as a Level 1 Service Provider (the highest level of validation).” The award is for CWCS’ primary data centre in Nottingham.

Commenting on the PCI DSS Compliance status, Karl Mendez Managing Director at CWCS explained, “Here at CWCS we take security very seriously. Not just at our data centres but also at our offices. You only have to come to our Beeston office to know how difficult it can be just getting in!”

Karl continues, “The PCI Level 1 status provides peace of mind for our clients that their data is in the safest of hands. In an era where data hacking and data breaches happen, clients can trust us with their data security. Our ISO 27001 certification further highlights our commitment to secure hosting and secure data.”
