Expedient is one of the very few PCI Level 1 certified collocation service providers.
PCI, as defined by the PCI Security Standards Council including American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB International, MasterCard Worldwide and Visa Inc. International, is a set of comprehensive requirements for enhancing payment account data security to help facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures on a global basis.
This group is focused on aligning the security initiatives of each member and ensuring a consistent 'standard of care' to protect card holder data. The result of this collaboration is the PCI Data Security Standard (DSS). PCI/DSS compliance requires security standards of any company processing, storing, or transmitting payment card data must be PCI/DSS compliant. Companies not adhering to the PCI/DSS compliance security standards risk losing their ability to process credit card payments and/or fines.
Expedient has invested significantly in the infrastructure, resources and operations to be one of the few PCI/DSS compliance certified collocation and managed service providers.
