Pay-Ease Lowers PCI Compliance Costs With Online Tech: The Chicago electronic financial process software developer Pay-Ease has chosen Online Tech’s OT private cloud computing platform for secure hosting of their eCommerce SaaS applications. The private cloud computing platform is hosted in Online Tech’s SAS 70 certified data centers to meet PCI compliant hosting requirements. Along with other companies that accept credit card payments, Pay-Ease is required to be PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) compliant. Being PCI compliant verifies that a merchant or payment processor has conformed to the security standards set by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SSC). This standard protects cardholder data (CHD) through an approach that covers every aspect of a technology-based solution including documented policies, stringent physical security measures, encryption, firewall settings, regular detailed audits, and everything in between. Collaborating with Online Tech’s technical team, Pay-Ease was able to develop a scalable, flexible, and secure virtual server and storage environment for both their production and backup environments. Online Tech’s OT Private Cloud computing platform offers Pay-Ease a fully managed private cloud with 24X7 monitoring, management, electronic offsite backup, and IT disaster recovery. With the fully redundant private cloud encompassing both servers and storage, Pay-Ease enjoys seamless failover and the ability to add, reconfigure or delete servers, hardware, or software with zero downtime at any time of the day without impacting customers. Because Pay-ease can quickly add resources to their private cloud, they have positioned their IT infrastructure to keep up with their accelerating business growth in eCommerce SaaS services.
