Azion and PCI Compliance

As part of our ongoing compliance efforts, Azion continually strives to enhance our internal security controls that apply to our customers’ data, applications and websites running on our edge platform. With that, Azion has been certified as a PCI DSS 3.2.1 Level 1 Service Provider, demonstrating our commitment to ensuring transmission and processing of cardholder data is secure for our own customers as well as anyone who interacts with Azion’s services.

What is PCI?
What is PCI?

PCI compliance, or PCI-DSS, is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS): a set of requirements that ensure vendors who accept credit cards are taking proper precautions to guard their customers’ sensitive data against fraud and theft.

Created and governed by major credit card companies worldwide, PCI-DSS is required for any business that handles credit card transactions.

So whether you have an online store or are otherwise adopting PCI standards as best practice, you must undergo a thorough annual process responding to 12 requirements, encompassing 250+ individual controls, that check how the company handles security, privacy, and availability in its systems. Businesses that process a high level of transactions must meet a higher level of PCI compliance, requiring more frequent network scans and external audits.

Although PCI compliance is required for e-commerce, all digital businesses can benefit from using a PCI-certified provider. By providing a higher standard of security, PCI compliance reduces the likelihood of data breaches, elevates user trust, and enables industry-specific use cases, such as securing patient data for healthcare companies or enabling online tuition payments for educational groups.

What this means for our customers

As a result, you can:

  • Simplify PCI audits
  • Maintain the highest level of compliance

  • Process payment credentials or other sensitive data
  • Keep your checkout process fast and performant
