Node4 achieves PCI compliance certification for physical controls at its data centres

Managed service provider successfully attains PCI compliance for ensuring a continually high standard of physical security at three data centre locations.

Node4 has completed its Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance for physical controls 9 and 12, across its three data centres. PCI DSS is the worldwide Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard that was set up to help businesses process card payments securely and reduce card fraud. This is achieved through enforcing tight controls surrounding the storage, transmission and processing of cardholder data that businesses handle. Node4 confirms to Control 9, which shows a high standard of physical access restriction to the workplace and cardholder data, as well as physical control 12, showing exemplary documentation and risk assessment processes.

The process of reaching PCI compliance is a huge achievement for Node4 and a great assurance to its customers. This third party assessment of all of Node4’s data centre locations across the UK is a continuation of its ISO27001 and ISO9001 accreditations, adding an external affirmation to the company’s commitment to security around customer data, on top of its already proven exceptional service and customer-focused credentials.

“We are immensely proud to be awarded PCI compliance at all three of our data centre locations,” commented Vicky Withey, Compliance Manager at Node4. “This certification upholds our customers’ deep level of trust by demonstrating evidence that our compliance and security is of the highest standards. At Node4 we pride ourselves on the length we go to ensure our data centres are physically protected 24/7, and achieving this accolade from a third-party assessment is a great acknowledgement of our continued commitment to providing exceptional service and security for our customers."
