Congratulations to our Cloud Tools Marketplace partner CloudPassage for achieving certification as a Level 1 Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) service provider!
CloudPassage’s Halo cloud security platform, hosted completely on the Rackspace public cloud, is now certified as a PCI-ready solution to automate PCI-DSS security controls for merchants and payment providers leveraging cloud infrastructure across public, private and hybrid clouds. These businesses can now far more quickly establish and maintain PCI compliance.
CloudPassage Halo automates major portions of the following PCI-DSS objectives and requirements for cloud infrastructure:
For many businesses, PCI compliance in the cloud has been a major challenge due to the shared responsibility model and automation of public cloud infrastructure.
