ePLDT's Vitro Data Center garners PCI DSS Certification

Makati City -- Vitro Data Center, the country's first commercial data center facility which is owned and operated by ePLDT, the digital enterprise enabler of PLDT, recently acquired its newest international certification -- Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard or PCI DSS. According to ControlCase, LLC, a US-based external Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) for PCI compliance, Vitro is the first and only data center facility in the Philippines that they have certified for ​​
PCI DSS version 3.1 -- the latest version of this international standard.

"This is one of Vitro's many firsts over the years", says ePLDT Group Chief Technology Officer Dwight David M. Simon. "Being the pioneer in digital infrastructure and enablement, we at ePLDT ensure that we set the pace and the bar for technological advancements, and compliance to global best practices, for the benefit of Filipino businesses."

PCI DSS is an information security standard for companies that process credit card transactions via major providers including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, JCB, etc. The standard is mandated by card brands and was created to increase controls around cardholder data with the intention of reducing credit card fraud.

With this certification, Vitro Data Center garners the confidence of the business sector, particularly financially-sensitive organizations such as banks, for the co-location of IT infrastructure used for storing, processing and transmitting cardholder data in a highly secure and private environment.

"We recognize the critical role of data security in the financial services industry and this certification provides Vitro with a tremendous edge in terms of providing peace of mind to our customers in this sector," adds Simon.

Compliance validation is performed annually by external QSAs that create a Report on Compliance (ROC) for organizations handling large volumes of transactions. In the case of Vitro Data Center, the ROC was issued on October 3, 2015 as a result of a recent audit performed by ControlCase, which operates in more than 20 countries spanning North America, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Middle East.

ePLDT is a wholly-owned subsidiary of PLDT and is engaged in providing businesses with digital solutions utilizing disruptive solutions such as data center, security, cloud and big data analytics.
