Datapipe Announces Industry’s First PCI Certified Cloud

Jersey City, N.J.- September 26, 2011 - Datapipe, a leading provider of managed services and infrastructure for IT and cloud computing, announced today the public availability of the industry’s first PCI DSS 2.0 Level 1 Service Provider certified cloud computing platform. The offering couples a custom PCI certified cloud infrastructure with a suite of managed security services to enable PCI compliance.

“Security remains a significant roadblock to enterprise adoption of the cloud,” said Robb Allen, CEO of Datapipe.  “This product is a leap forward in eliminating those fears and enhancing our capabilities as the managed service provider for the enterprise.”

Per the recommendation of the Cloud Security Alliance, Datapipe’s PCI Certified Cloud is not a “mixed-mode” deployment. Layering enterprise grade managed security services on top of this elite cloud maintains the integrity of the environment and provides a truly unique offering.

"Data classification and trust levels demand varying degrees of security protections,” said Joel Friedman, CSO of Datapipe.  “Since we wanted to avoid exposing our PCI clients to risks associated with operating in a common cloud infrastructure, we have made our PCI Certified Community Cloud exclusive to our PCI clients."

Datapipe clients have been running on the platform for a significant amount of time. Leading to public availability, Lotaris, a mobile service provider, has been utilizing Datapipe’s PCI Certified Cloud to deliver their payment processing technology to millions of devices around the world.

“Our enterprise clients demanded a superior level of security with zero impact to their service experience,” said Christophe Lienhard, COO at Lotaris. “It was imperative that we choose an IT partner with extensive expertise in PCI compliance and cloud computing. Datapipe’s PCI Certified cloud solution went beyond our expectations and improved service levels for our clients worldwide.”

As one of the first PCI Level 1 Certified Service Providers, Datapipe’s announcement continues an industry leading track record of innovation surrounding compliance, managed security services, and cloud computing. Datapipe recently announced the industry’s first Intrusion Detection Service (IDS) deployed on Amazon Web Services in partnership with Alert Logic. Datapipe is a participating organization in the PCI Security Standards Council as well as a member of the Cloud Security Alliance and the Electronic Transactions Association.
