The PCI Awards recognise “best-in-class” solutions that harness the latest technology to deliver success for real clients in PCI DSS compliance and Payments Security. Judges were looking for solutions that helped clients meet and maintain PCI DSS 3.2 compliance, could cope with incoming regulations like GDPR and PSD2, and either save money or help their clients’ businesses grow.
Winning solutions successfully delivered their clients’ objectives and offered significant, measurable benefits. Those selected help clients with fraud prevention and transaction security, encryption and tokenisation, while successfully preparing clients for next-generation payment issues. SureCloud demonstrated that its solution successfully delivered the necessary requirements for a well-known high street brand, impressing the judges in each of these areas.
The PCI Awards are based on reviews of specific, real-life projects and case studies achieved for real clients in PCI DSS and Payments Security. SureCloud’s solution enabled its client to automate monitoring of current PCI DSS compliance status, simplify reporting and enhance efficiency, and enhance visibility of compliance status enabling quicker remediation. In doing so, SureCloud ensured their client’s staff could spend more time addressing issues, and less time on manual reporting.
In the submitted use case, SureCloud had not only ensured smooth PCI compliance management, it had also become the foundation for a robust yet flexible IT security posture. The SureCloud Platform enabled the high street brand to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of its PCI DSS programmes, reducing the cost and effort of achieving and maintaining PCI compliance. The SureCloud Platform also enabled its customer to be self-sufficient, managing technical issues including forgotten passwords, adding and removing users, and specific questions about form creation and dashboard setup.
Commenting on the win, SureCloud’s CEO, Richard Hibbert said: “We are continually working to refine our solutions, ensuring that they enable our customers to meet ever growing compliance obligations and emerging challenges in payments security. We are very proud to have delivered to the PCI Awards for Excellence’s strict criteria and demonstrated the huge difference our solution makes to our customers.”
