As the industry standard for credit card payments, PCI DSS brings a series of procedural and security requirements so that organizations like Vindi can be trusted to process these transactions. In addition to the high level of compliance required to obtain the certificate, the company needs to maintain a consistent high standard as it undergoes reassessment at least once a year in order to keep its accreditation.
For a start-up like Vindi, acquiring the certificate is crucial for their business. The company was created precisely to function within this segment, introducing solutions that were ahead of the market. The challenges of having a small team and budget adds pressure to this process, leaving no room for failure.
As security was a decisive part of the process, Panella searched extensively for a solution that not only met PCI requirements, but was also prepared to keep up with the company’s growth in information security. Vindi was born with a “cloud-first” approach, so advanced defense tools needed to be employed in this context, something that is not common in this market.
