Celerant Technology Achieves Visa and PCI Certification
December 18, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsStaten Island, NY (December 18, 2008) – Celerant Technology, a leader in the retail software industry, received confirmation that the company has been named as a Visa and PCI Certified vendor and is now included in Visa's list of Validated Payment Applications.
"We are very proud to be recognized as a PCI Certified vendor," stated Ian Goldman, Celerant President and CEO. "Our software has been tested and re-tested to confirm adherence to the regulations required by the PCI Council. We consider it is important to provide our clients with peace of mind and security by ensuring that sensitive card holder information is kept private and have worked diligently to achieve this certification."
The PCI Security Standards Council has a set of standard regulations that vary, depending on the size of the merchant. Before a merchant or vendor can be Visa certified, the PCI Council verifies that these regulations are met by reviewing the results of independent, third party tests of payment processing applications. After the testing is complete, the vendor or merchant may be qualified for certification.
According to the Overview of PCI Requirements, "PCI security standards are technical and operational requirements set by the PCI Security Standards Council (PCI SSC) to protect cardholder data." It goes on to say, "The standards apply to all organizations that store, process or transmit cardholder data-with the guidance for software developers and manufacturers of applications and devices used in those transactions."
As a certified provider of payment processing software, Celerant Technology is now able to present an even more advanced solution to its clients. By providing a payment module that has been empirically tested by third parties, Celerant ensures that merchants are receiving software that meets the standards of the PCI Council.
