The Redwood Technologies Group Achieves PCI DSS Version 3.1 Certification

PRESS RELEASE: Redwood Technologies and Content Guru are delighted to have achieved the highest level of PCI DSS compliance – Version 3.1 – as members of the Redwood Technologies Group. Recognised by global forum the PCI Security Standards Council, this sees both companies building on their existing Level 1 PCI compliance certifications.

The latest iteration of the global PCI standard accredits companies which exhibit the highest standards of security across the transmission, storage and processing of payment card data on all card-based payment channels, including telephone, online and point-of-sale transactions.

Recipients go through a rigorous accreditation process which assesses every aspect of organisations’ payment mechanisms, aiming to ensure the ultimate safety of customer and end user data during sensitive transactions.

Redwood Technologies and Content Guru initially achieved PCI compliance in 2012, and process huge volumes of financial transactions for clients through the mass automated payment solution, storm® LOCK®, and its extension PADLOCK™, which delivers agent-assisted payments while ensuring that no sensitive data is kept on the platform.

Sean Taylor, CEO of the Redwood Technologies Group, commented:

“With this latest certification to version 3.1, we are extremely proud to have secured the highest possible level of PCI compliance. Increasing numbers of our clients are now choosing to run mission-critical payment services through our storm platform, and it is essential that we can continue to demonstrate that our processes conform to the foremost standards of industry recognition.”
