RMS Recertified for 3rd Year with both VISA and MASTERCARD for PCI (Payment Card Industry) Compliance

RMS, the leader in business-to-business Accounts Receivable (A/R) Management, has again been recertified with both Visa® and MasterCard® as a PCI Compliant service provider. This year’s certification covers not only RMS’ headquarters facility in Bethlehem PA, but also their data center in Leonia NJ and 3 satellite offices located in Tucson AZ, Pueblo CO, and Gurgaon, India. The PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standards) is a multifaceted security standard that includes requirements for security management, policies, procedures, network architecture, software design and other critical protective measures. The credit card providers have collectively adopted PCI DSS as the requirement for all organizations that process, store or transmit payment cardholder data.

“PCI Compliance continues to be an important customer requirement and vital component of our IT Security management program. RMS is very proud to have been a certified member of this list since the program’s inception 3 years ago” stated Walter Kristick, RMS CIO. “Maintenance of our certification status is an RMS top corporate priority.”

PCI Compliant vendors must fulfill all of the following requirements for which the details can be found on the PCI standard’s web site:

  • Build and maintain a secure network
  • Protect cardholder data
  • Maintain a vulnerability management program
  • Implement strong access control measures
  • Regularly monitor and test networks
  • Maintain an information security policy
