Thunderhead recertified for top financial services security award – Thunderhead demonstrates continued commitment to SaaS customers as the company is recertified by leading financial services body

LONDON & NEW YORK – October 1st, 2014 – Thunderhead, a leader in enterprise solutions for customer engagement, has been recertified for the proprietary information security award, Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS).

The recertification comes following continuous review and enhancement of internal safety controls within the SaaS environment.

Established by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC), the PCI DSS requires demonstration of stringent operations and best-in-class design excellence across any industry and validates 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.

Ian Pitt, CIO, Thunderhead said: “The customer is always central to what we do as a business, which we must demonstrate through our actions as an organization.

“This great achievement, as acknowledged by the PCI Security Standards Council, clearly shows that we are a company that can maintain the rigorous standards required in our quality and security of services to retain such a vital award as this, demonstrating our continued commitment to our customers.”

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.

Thunderhead’s recertification of the PCI DSS sits alongside the recent achievement of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance, an accreditation awarded based on strict adherence to the rigorous standards identified in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
