Serving the Entire Payments Ecosystem

Datapipe delivers hosting solutions for the entire payments industry, with tailored solutions for each segment in this space.

Independent Sales Organizations

ISOs administer valuable banking and transaction services to their merchant clients, making PCI DSS compliance essential. Any ISO that does not meet PCI standards runs the risk of losing its customers’ trust, and their business. Datapipe’s PCI DSS compliant hosting solutions remove the risk from the equation. Our compliant managed services will assure your merchants and bank associations they are dealing with a vendor they can fully depend upon. We offer ISOs the choice of public, private, hybrid or dedicated hosting solutions, providing your company with continuous business agility and scalability, all while delivering world-class security.

Payment Processors and Gateway Vendors

Because of the essential role processors and gateways play in the payments space, there are specific PCI DSS rules in place to govern their transaction processing services and any corresponding devices. Our team of compliance and security experts will work with your organization directly to help you identify the PCI mandates you must comply with and execute the technical requirements for you. Our flexible, high-performing PCI DSS compliant hosting solutions will work with any customized integration efforts already in place, ensuring you are able to maximize your growth opportunities while minimizing risk.


While all e-commerce and retail merchants must achieve PCI DSS compliance, this task is particularly challenging for larger organizations. Compliance guidelines for Level 1, 2 and 3 merchants are much stricter, and meeting these requirements can be a complex undertaking that involves assessment processes, infrastructure tools and staff responsibilities. With PCI DSS v3.0, merchants must maintain a complete inventory of the cardholder data environment (CDE), among other requirements. Trying to handle all of this in-house can be both expensive and risky. Datapipe’s PCI DSS compliant hosting services allow merchants to outsource these responsibilities safely and affordably, allowing you to focus on high-priority revenue generation and customer-focused activities.
