Thunderhead awarded another top security standard
Thunderhead shows continued commitment to its SaaS customers as it receives financial services validation
LONDON & NEW YORK – September 3, 2013 – Thunderhead, a leading provider of enterprise solutions for customer engagement, and the industry standard for automating trade documentation for capital markets, has achieved the proprietary information security award, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).
Defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), the award sets a high bar for security, rigorous operations and network design excellence across any industry, demonstrating Thunderhead’s commitment to its customers.
PCI SSC came into being to provide governance and security within the Payment Card Industry (PCI) to cover financial transactions and protection of customer data.
Thunderhead provides a PCI compliant Software as a Service (SaaS) solution to its customers such that if a customer wishes to handle cardholder data using Thunderhead’s infrastructure, the security of the environment and service will not have a negative impact on that client’s ability to maintain the security of the cardholder data entrusted to them.
Ian Pitt, CIO, Thunderhead said: “Thunderhead has always placed its customers at the centre of the organization, demonstrable in its actions to provide quality and security of services.”
“The PCI Security Standards Council requires that we not only look after our own customer data with the utmost respect and care, but having achieved it, we are now enabled to empower our customers to do the same, in turn, demonstrating our commitment to them.”
Thunderhead’s achievement of the PCI Data Security Standard sits alongside its recently awarded SOC 1 and 2 and adherence to the European Data Protection Standard 95/46/EC in all data centers – primarily for the customer data aspects including network security, separation of duties and over-arching security controls.
