Hybrid IT solutions provider OneNeck IT Solutions LLC (OneNeck
) has secured PCI DSS validation for its colocation services. OneNeck has headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona, United States and is a subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems Inc. (TDS). Besides collocation its offerings extend to managed services, cloud and hosting solutions and ERP application management. The company operates “top tier data centers” and offers hybrid IT solutions “tailored to provide high-touch customer service and enterprise-class IT solutions”. The recent validation underscores OneNeck’s commitment to security and compliance.
The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) applies to companies that deal with sensitive customer data like credit card information. It is managed by the PCI Security Standards Council and “requires all merchants who outsource the transmission, processing or storage of payment card data to a third-party to verify the provider adheres to the standard”. OneNeck has successfully completed version 3.2 of the standard to receive “Level 1” service provider validation. This applies to the company’s colocation services through its data centers in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Minnesota, Oregon and Wisconsin, United States. The rigorous third-party assessment was carried out by independent CPA firm Schellman and Company, Inc. OneNeck will continue to pursue PCI DSS compliance and aim to meet new PCI regulations that came into force on January 31, 2018.
“This validation offers customers assurance that we have the security controls in place to protect their data,” explained OneNeck’s SVP of Operations and Engineering, Mr. Dave Flynn. “By demonstrating we are PCI DSS compliant and audit-ready, it validates, for our customers, that we can securely host their environments in our top-tier colocation facilities. It also clearly establishes we have the ability to meet specific cloud and managed services deliverables in compliance with other PCI controls.”Do you know of any other companies that have achieved PCI DSS compliance?
