DataBank Attains Error Free PCI Report on Compliance

Report Results Reinforce Company’s Benchmarks for Comprehensive Security for Clients; Compliance Reduces Burden on IT Staff

Dallas, Texas – July 8, 2020DataBank, a leading provider of enterprise-class data center, connectivity and managed services, announces it has attained an error-free PCI Report on Compliance (ROC) for its managed services platforms located in its Baltimore data center, BWI1, Dallas data center, DFW1, and Kansas City cloud nodes. DataBank has also passed reports on compliance for its colocation services, which encompass the majority of its data centers.

DataBank is recertified each year for its major compliance frameworks including FedRAMP, FISMA, SSAE18, HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and Privacy Shield – GDPR. Achieving an error-free ROC is rare, and this marks the third year in a row that DataBank has received such an accolade for PCI.

The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards, or PCI-DSS policies and procedures, were developed to protect payment card-based transactions and thwart fraud and financial damage. With the complexity and frequency of security incidents and data breaches on the rise, organizations protect their critical data by maintaining continuous monitoring of security and compliance practices.

Industry officials point to data center companies like DataBank that leverage in-house expertise and infrastructure platforms to adhere to industry regulations and requirements — and further reduce the burden on IT staff. A 2019 IBM report estimates each security incident and data breach can cost enterprises an average of $3.92 million.

“DataBank is serious about securing our systems and ensuring compliance not only for our own core infrastructure and services, but also make sure our customers have the tools, resources, and solutions they need in order to keep their data private and secure,” comments Calli Schleintz, DataBank’s Compliance Team Lead. “With our in-house CISO, dedicated security and compliance engineering teams, and proven compliance expertise, DataBank can take responsibility for up to 80% of compliance controls. We work carefully with clients so they understand where their responsibilities lie and where DataBank can provide assistance.”
