PC Onsite is compliant with the latest
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard)
rules and regulations.
The PCI DSS was developed by the major credit card companies
as a guideline to help organizations who process credit
card payments. It prevents credit card fraud, hacking,
and various other security issues. A company processing,
storing, or transmitting credit card numbers must be PCI
DSS compliant or they risk losing the ability to process
credit card payments. Merchants and Service Providers
must validate compliancy by being audited by a PCI DSS
Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) Company.
PC Onsite runs a review of our compliancy once a quarter
to ensure that we stay compliant. Doing so we help to
protect you from credit card fraud, identity theft, and
All of our sites that contain or transmit credit/personal
information are secured using SSL (Secure Sockets Layer).
SSL is a form of encryption that helps to prevent any
data transmitted over the internet from being hacked or
stolen. You can tell when a site is secured using SSL
as it will begin with HTTPS:// as opposed to HTTP://.
SSL uses a type of electronic certificate between communications.
These certificates are purchased from a Certificate Authority
such as Verisign, Godaddy, and Network Solutions.
PC Onsite also secures not only the data transmitted
trough our servers but also any access to our servers
through remote or onsite. All connections are controlled
by an access list of IP addresses that will only allow
access from a specified location. The servers are physically
hosted in a Server Hosting Facility. Access to the physical
location is enforced by an access list of personnel that
can gain access to the servers physically.
