ViaWest Attains PCI Report On Compliance

ROC certification will assist ViaWest customers in their ability to meet internal and external compliance requirements

DENVER, Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Today ViaWest, a leading provider of adaptable colocation and managed hosting solutions, announced it has achieved compliance as a service provider under Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS) sections 9 & 12, and was issued a Report On Compliance (ROC) certification.

The process for ViaWest to be certified as compliant involved a comprehensive review by an independent auditor which demonstrates the company's adherence to a rigorous level of standards in control policies, procedures, security, technology and infrastructure. This certification is extremely important to validate the capabilities of data center providers, if they are not directly involved in the chain of custody of cardholder data, as it ensures that customers with these requirements will be properly supported under the standard.

The ROC certification will greatly assist ViaWest customers in their ability to meet their internal and external compliance requirements, and will be renewed on an annual basis to ensure strict observance of the stated provisions.

"PCI certification is definitely a huge differentiating factor for ViaWest within the industry," said Brian Dimoff, ViaWest Executive Vice President & Compliance Officer. "Although many providers mention PCI in their literature, only very few out there can actually offer confirmation of compliance to such an extremely high level of standards. As one of those few, ViaWest is a particularly attractive option for any business looking to receive their own certifications for business purposes." Dimoff continued, "This, without a doubt, demonstrates ViaWest's overwhelming commitment to ensure the best available customer environments in an ever-evolving regulatory climate."

With this latest milestone, ViaWest has reinforced their strong track record of investing both substantial time and resources in the enhancement of the company's standards in regulatory compliance. In addition to the newly acquired PCI certification, ViaWest also adheres to exacting company-wide SAS 70 Type II audits, as well as holding the European Union's Safe Harbor Framework Certification. This continuous dedication definitely highlights ViaWest's commitment level in providing the very best available solutions for its customers.

All ViaWest products and services are supported by a team of highly-trained solution engineers, who staff the company's Network Operation Centers (NOCs) on a 24x7x365 basis. For additional information on ViaWest's available services, please visit the company web site (www.viawest.com).
