    “The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) was developed to encourage and enhance cardholder data security and facilitate the broad adoption of consistent data security measures globally.”

    From: Requirements and Security Assessment Procedures, Version 1.2, October 2008

    Shortly after the DSS document was published, a national payment processor responsible for over 100 million transactions per month was compromised, exposing potentially millions of customers to financial loss and identity theft. Texas DataVault’s managed remote backup solutions help payment processors isolate confidential customer data.

    "Texas DataVault helps payment processors maintain compliance by meeting or exceeding the following PCI requirements"


    • The Challenge: A formalized process to manage network firewalls must be implemented, including personnel, network diagrams, testing, and validation.

    • The Solution: Texas DataVault’s data protection services are based on industry standards for secure network management process.

    • The Challenge: Limit vulnerabilities by narrowly defining the functionality of all systems

    • The Solution: Texas DataVault utilizes a dedicated infrastructure to perform online backups

    • The Challenge: Use strong cryptography and security protocols such as SSL/TLS or IPSEC to safeguard sensitive cardholder data during transmission over open, public networks.

    • The Solution: All data is fully encrypted when backing up online to Texas DataVault. Our AES encryption technology is certified by the National Institute of Standards and Technology, and meets or exceeds all PCI compliance requirements

    • The Challenge: Develop a data retention and disposal policy

    • The Solution: We can assist with the correct retention policies to protect your critical original documents and required customer data. In addition, Texas DataVault offers policy-based DataVaulting, allowing for older files to be moved off production servers and safely maintained at redundant offsite locations.

    • The Challenge: Limit access to system components and cardholder data to only those individuals whose job requires such access

    • The Solution: Only authorized individuals from within your organization have access to the remote data-not even Texas DataVault can view your files

    • The Challenge: Use appropriate facility entry controls to limit and monitor physical access to systems AND Store media back-ups in a secure location, preferably an off-site facility, such as an alternate or back-up site, or a commercial storage facility. Review the location’s security at least annually.

    • The Solution: Texas DataVault’s online storage solutions eliminate potential for tape theft, loss, or damage. Our data centers utilize multiple physical and electronic security measures to barricade your critical data away from potential threats. In addition, electronic backups reside at a minimum of two data centers, creating additional assurance through multiple levels of redundancy.

    • The Challenge: Render cardholder data on electronic media unrecoverable so that cardholder data cannot be reconstructed

    • The Solution: Without an encryption key, data is useless and unrecoverable. Not even Texas DataVault can retrieve data without the key issued to you.
