ControlCase re-certifies Equinix with PCI-DSS for second year
ControlCase has re-certified the Equinix Dubai data center with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) certification. Equinix had secured the certification last year for its data center in Dubai and having secured it again this year only fortifies the company’s capability and commitment to providing the most advance security to the data of its clients.
ControlCase awarded Equinix with the certification after it found its Dubai data center followed the stringent requirements governing the housing of credit card transactions, similar to its other counterparts around the world.
“By achieving compliance with the standard, Equinix demonstrates its dedication to offer secure environment in line with international standards as set by the PCI Council,” said Afy Merchant, Director, International Sales and Delivery at ControlCase.
“As electronic payment traffic continues to grow rapidly, so too do risks such as credit card fraud, the most common form of identity theft, and the misuse of stolen credit card details. The security of business-critical information within an Equinix data center is absolutely essential to enable secure operations. With this compliance we enable our clients to easily meet the PCI-DSS requirements, allowing them to focus entirely on their core business,” said Karim Rizki, Operations Manager, Equinix MENA.
