The company was one of the first to become PA-DSS compliant in 2009, when only 11 per cent of vendors had achieved the standard, and the recent validation confirms Compass Plus’ continuous commitment to security in the payments industry. PA-DSS was developed by thePayment Card Industry Security Standards Council with the aim of ensuring software vendors are developing secure payment applications for third-parties, such as financial institutions and merchants, that do not store prohibited cardholder data, giving consumers confidence in the safety of their confidential information. PA-DSS applies to applications that store, process or transmit cardholder data as a part of authorisation and settlement.

“Security will always remain a key issue in the payments industry and as such Compass Plus is committed to making the security and reliability of our products our top priority,” said Maria Nottingham, Executive Vice President at Compass Plus. “By achieving the most recent and highest level of PA-DSS compliance across our entire offering, we are able to help facilitate our customers in becoming PCI DSS compliant, which not only minimises the potential for security breaches resulting in compromised consumer data, but is a requirement for all companies working with Visa and MasterCard.”
