What Is PCI Compliance?

PCI DSS compliance is the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, which rates a company using 4 stages that correspond to the level of compliance. PCI DSS is an independent body established by several major credit card brands in an effort to ensure businesses maintain a secure environment when processing, storing and transmitting their customer’s credit card data.

  • Safety enhancements. A reduction in security risks and breaches.

Protecting our customers’ financial and personal data is one of our top priorities at Solid.

We understand that in order to build a loyal and returning customer base, you need to have a sensitive and robust data handling protocol in place. That is why Solid enables automatic encryption software for whenever confidential information is shared between our merchants and servers.

We do this because when live payment details are in a readable format (such as plain text), they become an easy target for potential cyberthieves. These fraudsters are aware of this issue and search for ways to intercept and copy the data. For example, one technique is to intercept card data that is being transmitted from a card reader to a POS server.
