For its continuous efforts to protect its customers’ data, ePLDT’s VITRO data center in Makati has recently received Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS) Version 3.2 Certification, an international accreditation that’s given to service providers and merchants who have passed certain security standards for protecting cardholder data.
PCI-DSS is a global standard created by a consortium of international credit card companies, and covers any entity that stores, processes, and/or transmits cardholder data.
The booming e-commerce market is fueling credit card transactions all around the world, which, at the same time, exposes risks to cardholders, banking institutions and enterprises involved in the process. Given that today’s cyber criminals are more intelligent and more sophisticated, traditional perimeter-based cyber security protocols are not enough to protect the business.Nerisse Ramos, ePLDT Chief Operating Officer
VITRO Makati is the second ePLDT data center to receive the certification, as VITRO Pasig also recently received an upgrade to version 3.2 certification.
Being the largest data center facility in the country to date, it has a maximum capacity of 3, 584 racks sitting on a nearly two-hectare property. It’s also recognized by NTT Communications as Nexcenter-compliant for its data center design practices and management experience.
VITRO Makati is strongly positioned to be the first financial data center in the country given its certifications, design standards, proximity to the business district and robust infrastructure. With the PCI-DSS certification in place, we can enable a stronger and more secure foundation for the digital enterprise in ensuring their continuous success now and in the future.Jovy Hernandez, Senior Vice President and Head of PLDT Enterprise
