VNPAY has just received the PCI DSS 3.2.1 Level 1 international security certificate for its services including VNPAY Cloud, VNPAY-POS (Smart POS), and VNPAY Payment Gateway by ControlCase, an international assessment organisation.

The certificate is the highest level of service provider established by the PCI Security Standards Council.

PCI DSS 3.2.1 comprises a set of strict requirements including multi-factor authentication, data encryption in line with security standards, and regular compliance and periodic reviews across the whole organisation.

Realising the importance of payment security, as well as understanding customers' concerns about security issues, VNPAY has always made efforts to improve the security standards for its services in line with the international security standard PCI-DSS Level 1.

To achieve this certificate, VNPAY’s services have to comply with 12 requirements covering six categories, including building and maintaining a secure network and systems; protecting cardholder data; maintaining a vulnerability management program; implementing strong access control measures; regularly monitoring and testing networks; and maintaining an information security policy.
