The financial services industry crafted PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) to help ensure the integrity and security of digital transactions that enable the use of credit, debit and other forms of payment cards and digital payments.
Adeptia software enables world-class data integration including the secure, scalable, and reliable exchange of data pursuant to digital payments. Adeptia enables PCI compliance by providing the capabilities and features needed to meet and exceed PCI DSS requirements. PCI DSS is an established information security standard which applies to any organization involved in the processing, transmission, and storage of credit card information. PCI DSS are standards all businesses that transact via payment cards must abide by. Originally created by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express in 2004, the PCI DSS has evolved over the years to also ensure that online sellers have the systems and processes in place to prevent a data breach.

PCI DSS consists of twelve primary requirements and these requirements apply differently to organizations based on their role such as whether they are a merchant, a payment processor, service provider or a software vendor. The 12 requirements of PCI DSS are:
In this article, we address Adeptia customer deployment scenarios where the Adeptia Connect application is installed, run, and managed by an Adeptia customer for example in their own data center, cloud environment, or hybrid cloud environment. Thus, in this scenario, Adeptia does not have access to the client data and so the PCI DSS requirements specific to Adeptia personnel are limited. Adeptia is required to ensure its software application supports all the features and capabilities needed to enable its clients to meet PCI DSS requirements.
PCI Requirement 6 focuses on Secure Systems and Applications and the software development lifecycle, or SDLC. PCI Requirement 6.3 states that all internal and external software applications must be securely developed, in accordance with the PCI DSS, industry best practices, and with information security incorporated. A securely developed software application should have several capabilities. It should be able to function in a hardened application or operating system. The application must encrypt sensitive data both in storage and in transmission. It should operate on a system that supports antivirus. Securely developed software supports authentication controls. It should also have the ability to be patched and continuously updated.
Adeptia meets these requirements of PCI DSS as they relate to developing a highly secure application and providing the features to enable PCI DSS compliant services.
