The company is now a PCI recognised laboratory authorised by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (PCI SCC) to perform security evaluations to help protect the people, processes and technologies across the payment ecosystem to help secure payments and data worldwide.

Julien Pottiez, vice president of security services, said: "As a trusted partner to the global gaming industry, we recognise the critical importance of maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance. Achieving accreditation to perform audits and tests against the PCI-DSS demonstrates our ongoing commitment to delivering unparalleled testing services that meet the evolving needs of our clients.

“Today, the PCI-DSS standard is not only applicable to regulatory requirements, but is also proving essential in enhancing your security posture, maintaining your customers’ trust and confidence, and reducing the risk of costly data breaches.”

PCI-DSS is a set of security standards designed to ensure that all companies that accept, process, store, or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. PCI-DSS compliance is especially important for igaming operators and suppliers, point-of-sale systems and retailers and any organisation that processes payments to protect the integrity of the transaction and the consumer’s financial data.
