Today marks a significant milestone for A24, as they announce the attainment of the global Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) version 4.0 for their Multicloud Hardware Security Module as a Service (HSMaaS). Achieving this milestone significantly ahead of the 2025 target, A24 cements its position as a vanguard in safeguarding cardholder data against the evolving landscape of data threats.
The enhanced PCI DSS v4.0, which supersedes the former version 3.2.1, has been developed in response to the dynamic nature of security threats and technological developments. It promotes new and innovative means to protect cardholder data and diminish the risk of security breaches. By obtaining this extensive certification, A24 reaffirms its commitment to adhering to the highest standards of information security, notably in highly regulated sectors such as government and financial services.
Speaking on this pivotal achievement, A24’s Terry Warren, Global CEO, stated, “Encryption standards are rising, and data security threats are growing, therefore the evolution of PCI DSS version 3 to version 4 is an important response to strengthen protect and defend payments using improved protocols. We are extremely delighted to have gained the latest PCI DSS standard as it is critical to have the highest security standards. It demonstrates our unwavering commitment to fortifying our clients’ and their client’s data security, especially in highly regulated industries in today’s ever-increasingly challenging digital landscape.”
This recognition aligns with A24’s participation in the upcoming Singapore Fintech Festival 2023. As part of the esteemed Austrade Stand, A24 joins a group of 15 other innovative companies, showcasing their advancements in the fintech sector across the APAC region.
